LegalZoom and other non-lawyer filing services will not give you legal advice on how best to protect your rights. In fact, on every LegalZoom page in small print it says “LegalZoom is not a law firm and is not a substitute for an attorney or law firm.” Hence, even LegalZoom agrees that it is better to have a lawyer help you. When you request a filing through Trademarkia, you can receive this service from an attorney. In addition, if and when there are updates to your filing, Trademarkia automatically notifies you and attorneys that represent you through Trademarkia will assist you. Furthermore, non-legal websites such as LegalZoom cannot:

  • Comment on the validity of registered marks;
  • Provide a legal opinion prior to filing on whether a particular mark or type of mark is eligible for trademark registration; or
  • Offer legal advice about trademark infringement claims.

Since LegalZoom and similar services are not handled by lawyers, they cannot enforce your rights in a trademark or bring legal action against potential infringers. Attorneys representing you through Trademarkia have experience helping with such matters.

All of the things above can be done through an attorney that represents you through Trademarkia. What’s more is that it costs roughly the same or perhaps even less. If it’s important for you to protect your brand, it makes sense to have a professional help you through Trademarkia.
