Call Anthony before you do anything!
Anthony provided me with exceptional service. Answered every question in detail and was available whenever I needed him. I will be recommending him to everyone who needs legal advice for trademarks and copyrights.

Island Born Trademark
Attorney Anthony Verna was pretty straight forward what I needed to get my trademark settled from a recent opposition filing. He explained in detail what to expect and my options. He saved me $$$. Would highly recommend for any trademark consultations.

Knowledgeable, reliable and fair
I hired Anthony to review my basic consulting contract, to ensure that it was air-tight. After the review, I felt much more comfortable and confident that I was protected. After that, I recommended him to Clients to help with a copyright infringement situation and he went above and beyond to do whatever he could to assist. Overall, Anthony is extremely smart and knowledgeable. He listens and understands my needs for each project and always does a great job of allaying any legal concerns I may have. He is timely and fair and when necessary is both strategic and aggressive in order to achieve the desired end result.

Outstanding by all measures !!!
I am honored to post this review for Anthony. He is an outstanding trademark and IP attorney. He handled my case from A to Z with professionalism, expertise, accuracy, and well-planned execution. And yes, he dealt a defeating blow to the enemy! (the enemy in this case was a shameless trademark infringer who was not only infringing my trademark, but was also trying to use the legal system as a tool to get rights that he doesn't have). I really couldn't be more pleased with the service that I received from Anthony. Concerning the legal fees, they were very reasonable. I will be glad to provide further feedback if needed Ezzat , Florida

Copyright & Trademark Ninja
Safeguarding our creative assets — trademark and copyright — requires vigilance and legal expertise. Anthony helped us win a settlement against toy counterfeiters, mediate and settle a copyright infringement case, serve myriad cease and desist notices all while keeping tabs on our copyrights and trademark. Our IP could not be in better hands, thanks to Anthony.

Above and beyond
Found Anthony when a trademark dispute arose, and would recommend without reservation. His counsel was spot on, no question he knows what he is doing. And he did not over-bill like a lot of lawyers would. Very pleased with his service (we won our case) and will continue to use him for trademark counsel in the future.

Knowledgeable, affordable trademark expert
I highly recommend Anthony for your trademark questions, filings and disputes. Anthony patiently helped me research potential company names and then trademarked the one I picked. He knows everything there is to know about the trademark process and his rates are affordable for small business owners. Later, when a competitor tried to file a similar mark, Anthony got the mark dismissed at minimal time and expense to me.

Respectful, friendly and gets the job done
Anthony was a pleasure to work with. He helped me out with a legal issue, and was able to reconcile the issue rather immediately. He was respectful and friendly, and I would strongly recommend him to others dealing with trademark issues.
