Nathan's trademark strategy and advice were exactly what I needed.
In bootstrapping my start-up, I am highly cost conscious and constantly evaluating the ROI of outsourcing v. do it yourself. Submitting a trademark application seemed pretty straightforward so I chose to do it myself. To my dismay, I received an Office Action from the USPTO indicating that our submission was “merely descriptive” and therefore could not be registered on the principal register. However, the term could still be registered on the less protective secondary register. Since I hadn’t even known there were two registers and didn’t know how much time and cost would be required to understand the details and submit an argument I strongly considered abandoning the effort.
The slew of letters I received from attorneys all over the country offering to submit a response on my behalf for as low as $149 didn’t make me feel much better. In general they simply wanted me to have them submit paperwork conceding my submission was “merely descriptive” and accept registration on the secondary register.
A few months later, I met Nathan and RC, at a legal panel for entrepreneurs. Figuring it couldn’t hurt to ask their advice, they reviewed my trademark application, explained the options, and indicated I had a case for the principal register. Given my cost concerns, they came up with an arrangement that fit my budget, provided the legal guidance I needed and now I have trademark protection on the principal register. Woohoo!

I was afforded the opportunity to attend a clinic for small business owners in San Antonio hosted by RAM Law Firm and Accion. Mr. Roach was very personable and made me feel at ease about the subject matter of incorporating my sole proprietorship into a LLC.
I found Nathan and his staff to be very knowledgeable and they were able to answer all of the questions I had. Each pro and con were explained to me. I was very confident in the information that was shared with me.

I've worked with Nathan and also had him opposing me during a rather complicated mediation. He is at the top of my list to refer matters to in the event I am unable to handle them. I think his business experience puts him at a distinct advantage for determining creative ways of resolving disputes, and I hope I am fortunate enough to get to work with him again in the near future.
