What a pleasure working with Gene. I had rolled this task on my calendar over and over as I was anticipating it to be difficult and complicated. What a surprise to deal with an attorney that accomplished the task to my complete satisfaction in short order with no hassles and complicated pricing for services. I would recommend Gene to anyone without hesitation.

I submitted my trademark application and received a "Section 2(d) Refusal – Likelihood of Confusion" office action. Shortly after I was flooded with automated emails from law firms offering to assist me with my trademark woes. I contacted many of them and most said that I had “little to no chance of winning an appeal”. Some wanted $200+ just to speak with me and ‘assess my situation’. Things weren't looking good.
After doing more research, I found Gene. I contacted him, discussed the refusal and he explained his proposed response to me. At this point I knew I found the right person for the job. The next day he submitted the document to the USPTO. Fast forward and my mark is now approved.
If you are serious about wanting the best attorney to represent you and your trademark, contact him first; you won’t be disappointed! Thanks Gene!

Gene Bolmarcich explained my situation of the phone for 30 minutes before I gave him a penny. He made me feel very confident after being very discouraged from my denied trademark. He explained my chances of winning each class and made it crystal clear that we did not have a sure shot at one of the classes. After we decided to move forward and fight all claims anyway, he sent me a very detailed and persuasive three page written response to the office action sent from USPTO. Six days later we were approved in all classes for my trademark. I could not be happier with the experience. I highly recommend Gene Bolmarcich when it comes to registering your trademark.

When I first applied for my trademark, I really had no idea where to turn and Google led me to a popular legal website. After my mark was rejected, I was very discouraged. Several lawyers reached out via annoying e-mails but Gene's letter in the mail stood out to me. I reached out to him and right away he identified where the issue was and was confident we could get the situation resolved. I got my official certificate in the mail the other day and feel so much better knowing that we are trademarked. He was a pleasure to work with and was always quick to respond to my questions. I highly recommend him for trademark services.

Our initial trademark application was rejected, and we got in touch with several lawyers to understand our options. Almost all of them said that our chances of successfully fighting this office action are very low and that we should re-apply, a few even suggested we change our brand!
Gene was extremely professional from the beginning - he read our case and thoroughly discussed our options via email and on a long call before we even committed to working together. While he obviously didn't promise success, he took the time to thoroughly understand our business and therefore believed that we have a good chance. We then agreed on a strategy, and within a few short days Gene already sent us a draft of our response to the USPTO, for our comments. The draft included everything we discussed, so we actually ended up not changing anything. After 3 weeks we found out that our response was approved and our trademark is now registered. We were super happy with Gene's services. Highly recommended.

Gene did an outstanding job. We received about a thousands emails from robot law offices after our USPTO denial, but we chose Gene because he has experience with the Craft Beer Industry and his references loved him. The day after we chose Gene, he submitted a huge rebuttal with countless court precedents specific to the food and drink industry. His flat rate was true blue and we were not surprised by anything. Within three weeks the USPTO overturned the denial and we won..twice! In a world of let downs and delays, Gene proved he is the real deal and will give you the attention that your business deserves! Great Oak Brewing Co. will be using and recommending Gene for the years to come!!!

After I received a response from the USPTO that a similar trademark that already exists similar services. Instantly, I had dozens of attorneys reach out to me and I reached out to a few that I know. No one was able to provide detail information on a plan to win over the trademark. Some gave less than a 20% chance. However, Gene reviewed both companies diligently and gave me step by step directions on how we can possibly win my companies name which we are trying to trademark. His argument made sense and I went along for the ride. Gene, thanks for your ongoing support and forcing the other company to default and helping me in receiving my companies trademark, Your awesome!

Gene helped me with a trademark issue. He was extremely responsive, which was unique enough. But, on top of that, he proved to be insightful and a very talented lawyer. As a lawyer myself, I was impressed. But, best of all, he is a pleasure to work with, and seems to be a genuine person who really cares about his clients. That's pretty much the ideal lawyer right there.

Gene is a pleasure to work with. He's very knowledgeable, responsive and has a great sense of humor :) I filed a few trademarks on my own that were rejected and his recommendations helped approvals sail through. Gene is my go-to for all IP related needs and I'm very happy to recommend him.

Listen, if you are looking for a trademark attorney, you need to just use Gene. I have been in business for 20+ years and without a doubt, he is the most RESPONSIVE, and TIMELY attorney I have come across. Those are not words you use with attorneys, and you know what I mean if you have had any dealings with them. His communication is usually within 30 minutes and it is explained so I understand EXACTLY what is meant even though I knew nothing on the process. I wouldn't EVER use anyone else and wish he did other type legal work. Worth every penny and then some. And in no way is this anything but an actual review. I am a happy and soon to be repeat customer!
