Laura has handled several different issues for me over the last couple of years, including trademark applications, contracts and other business legal matters. In the trademark application, we were opposed by a large pharmaceutical company. Laura skillfully worked out an agreement which protected my business interests without caving in to the over-reaching demands of our opponent. Throughout that case and the other work she has completed for me, Laura has always been very responsive, helpful, timely and knowledgeable. Laura's fees are very fair and the work she turns out is of the highest quality. I have recommended her services to a number of my friends.

Sure wish this site gave a six star option because this attorney merits a superior rating in all categories.
I contacted Ms. McFarland-Taylor for trademark needs and she responded promptly, knowledgeably and in a very personable manner. As my mother often said, "What you get coming in is what you get all along and this has certainly been so with this attorney. She has communicated proactively and with thorough explanations.
Every small business owner knows how very much time and focus on a myriad of details is necessary to keep things running smoothly day to day. With Ms. McFarland-Taylor at the helm of my trademarking process, I have been able to confidently see to the launching of my business, knowing that we are in good hands with all aspects of our product's branding protection.
Finding a good lawyer is easy and and frequent as finding treasure. In Ms. McFarland-Taylor, I have struck gold.
