Metro Detroit Trademark Attorney Helping Clients Nationally to Protect Names, Logos, Trade-Dress, and Brands


You’ve put all of your energy into your venture and do not want your customers confused by an infringing trademark. 

Registering your name or tag-line or logo on the Federal Trademark Register will ensure that customers seeking out your product or service find you

The instinct to try to DIY or Google your way to trademark protection is a natural one; however, as with anything, you may get what you pay for. Consulting a knowledgeable trademark attorney from the moment you devise your name, logo, or brand, will assure you that you have conceived a trademark that will successfully survive the scrutiny of the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Retaining a trademark attorney to run a thorough clearance search of your proposed trademark prior to filing an application with the USPTO will ensure that you aren't infringing anyone else's mark--and will tell you what your risks are if you do proceed with an application for registration. 

Retaining a trademark attorney to draft, file, and prosecute your application will ensure that you don't run up higher costs later if the USPTO responds negatively to your trademark's registration, or, worse, if a rival registered mark owner opposes its registration. 

The Hilla Law Firm can help you succeed. 

We are located in the Metro Detroit area of Michigan but represent trademark registrants across the United States--and internationally.

"See what past clients are saying about how we helped them!"

I cannot say enough about how well we were treated by John. He was very knowledgeable about the entire process and kept us informed throughout; there were no surprises... I would recommend John to anyone, knowing he would do as good a job for them as he did for us. David
