You don't own your BRAND without a FEDERAL TRADEMARK
P R O T E C T Y O U R B R A N D
Registering your trademark is an important step to protecting your brand identity. Your trademark is a symbol to identify your business and registering your trademark is the best bet to prevent another business from using your logo or name to conduct business!
If you are selling a product or a service YOU NEED A TRADEMARK! Not trademarking your name, logo or slogan is leaving the most important part of your business vulnerable to be copied or registered by someone else. If you're going back and forth about whether you need to register your trademark, think about all of the hard work, time and persistence that it took to get where you are. Now think about how you would feel if someone copied your brand or sent you a cease and desist letter for your own brand. With A.C. Smith Law on your team, we will work to give your brand the protection it deserves!

Benefits of Registering your Trademark
Federal trademarks provide legal protection for your brand in the entire United States and its territories.
Protects against federal registration of competing marks that are identical or confusingly similar marks.
Once your trademark is registered you can use the ® trademark registration symbol which puts others on notice that you own the brand!
With your registered trademark, you can have stronger cease and desist letters to deter others from using your brand in business.
You don’t have to run your business with the fear of receiving a cease and desist letter or whether your investment in your brand is protected.
Your registered trademark will deter others from starting brands with an identical or similar name as yours.
Trademarks last forever, as long as you are still using it and file your maintenance documents.

Meet A.C. Smith
My name is Ariana C. Smith and my passion for working with small businesses arose from my own desire to be a small business owner.

Smith Law Firm was born!

It requires you to step out on faith and truly believe in yourself and the skills or services that you intend to offer. I am fully committed to using my strong experience in navigating through the law to help your business and brand stand on solid legal ground.
