Here are some things that actual client’s have posted on LinkedIn regarding our services:
- Shell Brodnax, CEO Real Estate Staging AssociationI have worked with Erik on two trademarks over the last few years and he is always the utmost professional. There has never been a question that he can’t answer and I was confident all of his answers are correct. Having trust in a legal professional is of the highest importance. Erik was also a speaker at our very first convention and received high marks from the attendees. I highly recommend working with Erik Pelton.
Pam Morrell, Founder/Creative Director – Campaign Cafe
All you marketing folks naming and branding out there, Erik’s a great find for a trademark lawyer. I understand he logged a few years at the USPTO so he knows all the ins and outs. And he’s based in DC with easy access. Luckily, I found him in time to save the Campaign Café name from the final reject bin. So I’ll be hiring him from now on. He also does domain names, infringement monitoring, et al. Erik knows his stuff and is a pleasure to work with. I’m happy to refer all my clients there – and I highly recommend him to any of you.
Bill Sherman, Chief Operating Officer at Thought Leadership Leverage
Erik and his firm provide an exceptional service to the small-business and startup communities. Having worked with him over several projects and many companies, he’s proven to be a trusted advisor.Erik deeply understands his field, and he also knows how to speak the language of small businesses and startups. Therefore, he can quickly guide you through the complex process of defining and filing a mark (or understanding the USPTO’s response).I would recommend him to any startup’s founder or small-business leader who need to file for federal protection of a trademark.
John Friedman, Principal, Law Office of John K. Friedman, PLLC
I’ve hired Erik and his firm to handle trademark work for a number of clients and their projects. They are prompt, professional and thorough. On top of that, they’re a fabulous value. I recommend them for any firm looking for expert guidance through the TM jungle.
- Roger Berg, owner BERG DESIGN, INC.
I first contacted Erik to register the trademark for our Runabout™ Baby Strollers. We had been selling Runabouts™ since 1988 with just the ™ after Runabout™. We had never registered the name Runabout™. I searched the internet for a Trademark Attorney. I liked what I read about Erik Pelton. I contacted Erik and we talked. Then I sent him my info. A week later, Erik called me. He told me he did not share the feelings of the Portland TM Attorney! He assured me that he would be able to copyright the Runabout name that we had been using since 1988. And his fee was under $1000. Wow! That was Great News! I signed some papers and sent Erik the initial fee.I think it was a little over a year later when we received the Great News! Erik succeeded in registering RUNABOUT© for Berg Design Incorporated.In January, 2009 we signed a licensing agreement with one of the largest daycare stroller companies for the rights to use our Runabout© name and stroller designs. This most significant event would not have happened if Erik had been unable to protect our Runabout© Stroller name!We can not Thank Erik Enough!
