New Product
I contacted Garcia-Zamor Intellectual Property Law about my idea for a new product. Having gone down this path before. I was prepared to be overwhelmed with information. I was thoroughly impressed by Ruy's knowledge and professionalism. Ruy broke everything down so it was easy to understand, but he also went the extra mile and addressed the importance of branding. Ruy is not just there to do the paperwork. He is there to advise and counsel you. Ruy's goal is to make you successful. I believe that's what a GOOD attorney does.

awesome guy, awesome lawyer
I have been in business for over 14 years and I met mr. Garcia(Ruy) as a customer first. we talked and after I found out what he did I asked him about branding and trademarking my logo and patenting a product I had invented . It was brand new and I loved it and I didn't want anyone else to steal it. So he told me how to go about trademarking my logo and getting a patent. He and his team got the paperwork together ,worked with my budget , there were a few problems with the name because of someone else using it and ruy told me how to go about handling that and we won. I was so excited I had beaten out a big company on the west coast for the use of my name. I cannot tell you how great this team is to work with .Ruy is one very intelligent man. He has so much Insight when it comes to large and small business needs as well as the budget. He worked with me on a payment plan so that I could afford to do all that I needed to do to Brand my business and the trademark. I have recently started another business as an LLC and I went directly to ruy and immediately had it trademarked. Literally it was almost the middle of the night when this all took place and he didn't skip a beat. the next day my paperwork was done. His team is amazing they all work together . they are very efficient. I just can't say enough good things about this company. I would recommend them highly to anyone ,and I do all day everyday as often as I can.

Attention to deal!
Working with Ruy and his staff was a pure delight. In the past I worked with another trademark attorney who I felt did not fully protect my logo's. Ruy was able to broaden the scope of my trademarks thereby strengthening my marks. Overall I really enjoyed my experience with Ruy and staff. I actually understood the "attorney language" and felt comfortable with Ruy. GREAT JOB!!!!

Company trademark review
I was fortunate enough to have met Ruy before it was too late. He educated me on why any new business or idea should connect with an intellectual property attorney right away. Ruy handled our trademarks efficiently and is now an integral part of securing my company's future. I would recommend that any business, small to large, contact Garcia-Zamor right away if you haven't pursued trademarks, patents, etc. Your company's identity and message could be lost without them.

Knowledgeable and Responsive
Attorney Garcia-Zamor is extremely knowledgeable and very responsive. My legal practice does not include intellectual property law and he is my go-to attorney for IP consultation. The numerous clients I have referred to him over the years have, without fail, been extremely happy with the legal services that he provides.

Invaluable Intellectual Property Work
Garcia-Zamor has been invaluable for my company and my clients in helping us build a complete intellectual property asset that adds value to our businesses. They have been very helpful for my new start up clients in business entity formation and operating agreements (including buy-sell agreements). Assisted in providing advice in selection of brands for our marketing campaign that were not only effective but were available for trademark protection (adding more value to the company). Very responsive! Will definitely continue to work with them in the future and recommend them to my clients.
