Legal Representation in Federal Trademark Registration with the United States Patent & Trademark Office
Although obtaining counsel is not a required for Federal Trademark Registration with the United States Patent & Trademark Office, I recommend employing an attorney who is familiar with intellectual property matters, as there are numerous substantive and procedural requirements of the Trademark Act and Trademark Rules of Practice that must be complied with, regardless of who is filing the application.
These requirements are usually too complex for the average person who does not possess a background in intellectual property law to response to appropriately, which could lead to delays or abandonment of the mark. One can find the names of qualified trademark attorneys in their area by contacting the local bar association for their city (i.e. in the South Florida area, there is the Broward Bar Association in Fort Lauderdale, in Miami-Dade County there is the Miami-Dade Bar Association, etc.
You would be wise to consult with a Florida trademark attorney first, before undertaking any trademark matters.
