The Sausser & Spurr Law firm, in my opinion are an elite group of attorneys. Their customer service is superb! They were always accessible. Even when they were not in the office, they would always respond to both, my phone calls, and emails promptly. I was never “left out of the loop” with the progress of the filing. Throughout the course of the filing, I was at ease as a result of being contacted at every stage of the process. I always knew what had transpired, or was about to. This firm is well adept in the intellectual property sector of law. They were able to explain every aspect of the trademark application process, and answer all of my questions with clarity. Everything was presented to me in a manner that wasn’t the least bit confusing. Before I actually called the law firm, I did extensive research on how to file for a trademark. Even though I thought I knew all there was to know about the filing process, I was suddenly enlightened by them in regards to the “strategic side” of filing. They taught me the proper way to protect my brand’s intellectual property. If I would have done it myself, I would have made a few mistakes that could have cost me a lot of money, and possibly my marks. This firm is comprised of complete professionals. I compared their prices, and quality of service with various law firms on the internet (both locally and nationally; over 15 to be exact), and Sausser & Spurr had proven to be the most reasonable choice for such high quality of service. I couldn’t have made a better decision. Thanks Sausser & Spurr, I’m absolutely looking forward to doing business with you in the future!

This was a wonderful experience. I thought about doing it myself but found it to be a bit overwhelming because I wasn’t familiar with certain terms and jargon, as well as laws. This team walked me step-by-step, processing all the legal transactions for me.

Charleston, SC Trademark Attorney Differences

A lot of attorneys charge based on an hourly fee, and give you an estimate. This can leave you guessing on total costs. Almost all our trademark services are flat fee. This means no guessing on total costs. In addition, we want you to know what to expect prior to hiring our firm. We don’t want you to be surprised or have any unexpected fees. Our firm simplifies the trademark filing process so that you can enjoy low flat fees, and a professionally filed application without all the guesswork. If you are getting quoted $1,500-$2000 to file a trademark from another Charleston lawyer, you may need to look elsewhere.

  • Beware of hourly fees for trademark filings.
  • Filing a trademark under one class should not cost $1,500.
