Three Steps We've Used to Register 5,500 Trademarks
Step 1: Comprehensive Trademark Search

Once you complete our engagement form, we will conduct a comprehensive federal, state and common law trademark search. Our search of federal and state trademark databases is done utilizing software provided by Corsearch. This is an industry leading trademark search software used by the largest law firms in the world. Our search works to identify any potential issue with your desired trademark prior to making a trademark filing.

Step 2: Trademark Attorney Consultation

Within 7-10 days of commencing work, we will return the trademark search results for your review. You can then set up a time to talk to one of our attorneys about the search results and any other questions you have about the trademark registration process. In the event that our search uncovers a problem, we offer a complimentary second search on a different trademark.

Step 3: Trademark Application Filed

Our experienced trademark attorneys will prepare your trademark application for your review and approval. Having drafted and successfully registered over 5,500 trademarks since 2008, our attorneys understand the intricacies of a US trademark application and will ensure your application is drafted to give you the best chance of approval possible.

Businesses in San Jose, CA Using Trademark Attorney’s for Service

*Please note that while Gerben Law Firm, PLLC is not located in California, it can assist businesses from California in registering a federal trademark because it is a federal matter.

Gerben Law Firm, PLLC, was created by trademark attorney Josh Gerben for the sole purpose of handling trademark related issues. Mr. Gerben has clients in cities all over the United States, including America’s tenth largest city, San Jose, California. San Jose, often referred to as the capital of the Silicon Valley, was recently selected as the new West Coast home for a satellite U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) opening in 2014.

According to USPTO, a trademark “is a word, phrase, symbol or design, or a combination of words, phrases, symbols or designs, that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others.” When you have registered your trademark, no other business can use it to promote its business or sell its products. The trademark belongs exclusively to you.

It does not matter if you only plan to use your trademark in San Jose or California, obtaining a federal trademark makes it possible for you to use it anywhere else. This becomes more important every day as technology advances as your business likely has an online presence enabling you to sell products worldwide via the Internet.

When you have a registered trademark, it is illegal for other people, no matter where they are located, to use it. If some other business in San Jose, CA, or somewhere else in the U.S. uses your trademark in advertising or sales, you can sue them for infringement. They will be forced to quit using your trademarked “word, phrase, symbol or design.”

Gerben Law Firm will do a trademark search and prepare your trademark application and all accompanying paperwork for your San Jose business. Mr. Gerben has developed a unique system of working with clients that is highly efficient. He is able to give you the individual attention you deserve for registering your trademark. He has learned how to do this by charging a flat rate fee that is generally a fraction of the fee charged by larger firms.
