High Level of Professionalism
Nadia helped me to register my trademark that a previous registrant attempted to apply for. She displayed a high level of professionalism and was very responsive during the registration process. I am appreciative of her insight and ability to protect my brand. I would highly recommend Nadia to anyone looking to secure their intellectual property in an expeditious manner.

She is great!
She has been there for me from the beginning and I knew I could always count on her (sometimes she gets busy or she is goes out of town) and she has always found a way to connect with me within 24 hours or so and she has always found a way to help me..... I do highly recommend her!

Nadia is an amazing attorney with so much talent and common sense. She really helped guide me through the process, made me feel at ease the whole way through. She would point out the pros and cons of every situation. She’s very patient. I have recommended her to a few friends!

Thankful for her!
I am so thankful for her! My first contact with her was for a trademark application, then I needed her help for trademark infringement, then she helped me put together some partner contracts, and then a name change (personal, not business related)....... I am just so thankful for her!!! She has been so very helpful in so many way to me and my family..... Whatever you need, you will be in good hands if you go with her, that's all I have to say!

Excellent Attorney, Personable Too!

With deep gratitude and appreciation
She is a miracle worker! I came to her after already having filled a trademark application with the USPTO. I had hired a different trademark-specializing attorney, so I know it was done at least professionally and properly. It wasn't long before we received an office action from the USPTO saying that our mark will be disallowed because it was too similar to an existing mark (it was explained to me why that existing mark did not show up on our search prior to the filling, so that's ok). Anyway, my attorney at the time said he could not dispute it -- he said the USPTO was correct in denying it.... I searched for another attorney to take over and fight for me, however no-one wanted to take over the case because no-one felt like they could overcome this particular USPTO office action, given the other mark that was already registered. When I came across Nadia, she gave me hope, while letting me know that, as she says it, "USPTO reviewers are human, so I cannot guarantee anything". To make a long story short, our mark is now registered and she did it all with a smile!!! I highly, highly recommend her! I recommend her from the beginning of the application process to avoid certain pitfalls -- she is through, she is reachable, she is knowledgeable!

I felt like a human being
I enjoyed working with Nadia. As a doctor, I've worked with a lot of attorneys and she is the first one who made me feel like a human being and not like a wallet, waiting to be opened. (Don't get me wrong, she does expect payment for her services, there is just a whoooooole other feel to the conversation when you talk with her -- she feels "human" and she treats you like "a human".)
