Awesome Trademark Lawyer!
Adam Garson has helped us grow our business in immeasurable ways with his work on our trademark applications and in defense of our trademarks. We are a small business that first opened in 2008. Since we retained Mr. Garson, we have been able to expand our business without worrying about protecting our trademarks. He is always there when ever we need his services and always gives 100% to our needs and requirements. I highly recommend Mr. Garson to anyone looking for an outstanding trademark attorney!

Adam Garson helps fellow attorney secure trademark protection
Although I am a licensed attorney (trial litigator) I quickly realized I needed expert legal advice navigating the murky waters of trademark law and intellectual property. Adam is very knowledgeable in the field of intellectual property and was able to guide me through the confusing trademark registration process. As a fellow member of the bar, I would highly recommend Adam Garson. He is excellent and easy to reach. A+

Absolutely Fantastic! From ™ to ®
Adam is a helpful and genuine person who was really interested in me, my business, and how he could help me get my trademark. I tried to register the trademark myself, read the USPTO site guidelines and watched their videos... and I STILL got the rejection notice. Adam understood the problem, helped me clarify the issues, and got it registered way ahead of schedule compared to the initial time estimate. Absolutely saved me a ton of headache and worry, best money I spent all year. My trademark is announced for publication in a few weeks. This is a person to develop a business relationship with, 100%.
