Successfully resolved a federal trademark lawsuit against me from a MUCH larger company!
I can not say enough great things about Thomas P. Howard and his fantastic team, they worked hard and efficiently to resolve the lawsuit against me. They made a VERY stressful lawsuit against me, manageable. They really went the extra mile to defend me figuratively and literally (the lawsuit was filed in NY federal court, and I live in the midwest!). Thomas P. Howard and William Groh (and his awesome team) navigated the complex filings and scheduling with reassuring competency and professionalism. Tom and his team are not just extremely good attorneys, but they are also very polite and courteous. This was extremely important as the stress peaked during the lawsuit. During MANY sleepless nights during the lawsuit, my only comfort was knowing that Tom and his team had my back. They charge reasonable rates for their services and I don't think I could have found a more competent legal team for the money.

Thomas P. Howard is an I.P. expert!
In order to succeed on the tumultuous path of small business, I have chosen a handful of experts in their respective fields to help me along the way. When unforeseen bumps on my path have occurred, I have had to rely on and trust these magnificent people I have chosen… Mr. Howard is one of these experts and a pleasure to work with. Thomas P. Howard is an undeniable authority in the area of trademark infringement and overall intellectual property law. In my particular situation, he has proven himself to be experienced, exceptionally knowledgeable and resourceful with a superb ability to translate the mind boggling minutiae of “legal speak” for me so that I could make informed decisions. In a recent “bump” on my path, Mr. Howard attained exemplary results very quickly that, quite frankly, helped to save the life of my business. What more could anyone desire in these matters? I highly recommend the legal services of Thomas P. Howard. He is a champion!

Excellent Internet Legal Services
Thomas Howard provided my company with excellent legal services associated with trademark registration and a domain name dispute through the World Intellectual Property Organization. Thomas understood the processes and options and made them clear before I decided how to proceed. In the end we were successful with both. I would definitely recommend Thomas Howard and his staff to anybody who requires legal services in the area of Intellectual Property.

Excellent trademark lawyer
Mr. Howard represented me on a trademark case. He did an excellent job. His response to the demand letter I received resulted in the other party dropping their objection. Very knowledgable.

I highly recommend Tom and his team.
My husband and I would highly recommend Tom and his team. Tom always took the time to explain our options and kept communication open regarding how our case was proceeding. He and William were always pleasant to deal with and had the knowledge to go up against a large corporation successfully for us.

Stay away!
Thomas urged me to engage in litigation, he claimed "I don't know what their defense could be." Well they had a pretty simple defense, my trademark was no good, and I lost years of my life and thousands and thousands of dollars on this case. Get a second opinion no matter what you do!
