I’m an attorney and I refer my clients to Laurie Marshall for all trademark related issues. She has an in-depth understanding of trademark law, and she knows how the US trademark office works. I have used her for trademark applications for businesses owned by friends and family. Laurie and her staff are professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Laurie for all of your trademark legal work.

TradeMarks The Spot has helped us file several trademarks. Their understanding of the process, counsel on the finer points of each submission, and practical, no-nonsense approach have helped us navigate through to securing each one. They are true professionals.
Dan Brokke, President Bethany International
My experience with Laurie and Cate was awesome! As a first time business owner they made this experience a breeze and were always available to discuss the steps to getting my trademark complete. They explained everything thoroughly and made me feel confident about the process.
Thank you for the chance to share my experience with Attorney Laurie Marshall and her team. I think what I was most impressed with was Laurie’s down-to-earth, accessible nature. Not once but twice we spoke on the phone when she could of easily responded by email. In fact on both occasions she insisted we speak on the phone for clarity and, I believe, to acknowledge my uncertainty due to my novitiate status. It was obvious Laurie and her team desired only to advocate for my needs with integrity and timeliness. Thank you so much for taking on my application.
Laura Fuller, owner, the FULLer CUP

As an entrepreneur, I’ve come to value people that can help navigate tricky situations and save time. Laurie has been helpful, affordable and on point!
Kevin McCaffrey, Director of Business Development — Alternative Investments at Thomson Reuters
Laurie made the process of trademarking my company, easy, seamless and understandable. I was very happy with the process, her communication style and the results arrived when she said they would. A great experience all around.
Katie Osborn, Principal & Creative Director
I love working with Laurie. We have three applications for Dog Fashion spa in the works and the process has been seemless so far. I was hesitating about spending money on something I thought I could handle myself. Trust me, the time savings and peace of mind are priceless. More importantly, if there are inquiries I know Laurie will handle them without sweat.
Also, do not wait for applying for the trademark.If you don’t want to operate as a mom-and-pop shop, do it as early as possible before you invest any money in developing a Web site, printing labels, etc. Laurie is very straightforward and will tell you right away if there is an issue with a trademark. You want a professional with years of experience to guide you through this. I have three master’s degrees and I chose to outsource this task to her company. I sleep at night and focus on growing my business while she is doing her job.

Laurie has been a tremendous resource with respect to trademark infringement, filings, searches, etc. She has provided my business with top-notch advice regarding our trademark issues. Laurie is super responsive, easy to reach at all hours and has answers to questions literally at her finger tips. I would refer her to anyone who wants to file a trademark or has issues with their trademark in a litigation scenario.
Kimberly Schanzer, Attorney
I have worked with Laurie Marshall for over 10 years and can absolutely say, she is one of the most thorough, hands-on professionals I have met. When it comes to legal issues, especially trademarks, it is imperative to have someone knowledgeable, experienced and thorough because having something go wrong with your trademark can lead to catastrophic problems with your brand and business. That’s why I go to Laurie and her company —- she has over 15 years experience and has managed trademarks for major brands and businesses like Major League Baseball. You will be in good hands with Laurie.

Jamie B. Eidenberg, Esq., Partner at Rifkin, Livingston, Levitan & Silver, LLC
I am incredibly fortunate to have an incredible resource in Laurie Marshall and her team at TradeMarks The Spot. In a short time and with little effort on my part, I’ve gone from wondering what my options were to protect an intellectual property to having papers filed to TM the work…AND with the highest confidence that I have made the best possible choices in doing so.
Laurie and her team are a pleasure to work with, patient with questions and concerns (upfront with a debrief and along the way) and insightful in their advice. For someone like myself who has less than a working knowledge of TM/copyright law, to have years of experience and efficiency on call for these important business considerations is a dream come true. I look forward to my next opportunity to work with TradeMarks The Spot!
Hallie Overman, Print & Product designer at overprint inc.

Laurie is an exceptional attorney and legal advisor. She also has the incredible ability to balance her client’s business needs with apparent potential legal risk challenges. She not only delivered great risk assessment advice, but incredible experience and insight into alternative business possibilities. She has been and will continue to be an incredible legal asset to me. I highly recommend her legal services.

Laurie possesses well established credentials as a trademark attorney, with a keen understanding of a wide range of practice-related concerns – it was a pleasure to work closely with her on a number of client matters, both when she served as an in-house trademark counsel and, here, at Cowan, Liebowitz & Latman, as a Senior Trademark Attorney.
