Owning the legal rights to your brand is one of the smartest investments you can make in your Online Business. I help internet entrepreneurs do just that by registering their trademarks with the USPTO.

As an internet entrepreneur myself, I have an intimate understanding of what can happen to your business if you don't claim your legal rights. Rebranding your business can cost you tens of thousands of dollars. A Federal Trademark Infringement lawsuit can cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars.

When you compare these costs to the relatively small investment to register your brand name, not to mention the benefits that come with a Federal Registration, and the choice is clear.

You must register your trademarks, and I can help you do it.

As far as me personally, my law firm is based in Raleigh, North Carolina, but I run it remotely from Lisbon, Portugal where my family and I moved in the summer of 2022.

My wife and I have three children, two dogs and two cats. Yes, it is a packed house!

When I'm not helping my clients protect their brands or creating videos for YouTube, we can be found traveling through Portugal enjoying the many perks our new country has to offer!

Legal Answers
Q. In an uncontested divorce case, where defendant filed no answer, is it unusual not to have a hearing after 3 months?
A: I slightly disagree with Amanda. Whether or not you can calendar the case will depend on the rules in your county. You can file an answer agreeing with all the allegations and then file either your own motion for summary summary judgment (which you could calendar since it's your motion) or you file a notice of hearing. The rules in other counties may vary. If you are unable to calendar his case for hearing, then you should file an answer and counterclaim for absolute divorce - this way you just need to mail him a copy of your counterclaim rather than having him served via certified mail or process server.
Q. How can I get my ex husband to follow through with our vehicle property notice?
A: If you do not file for equitable distribution prior to having your divorce entered, then you waive the right to have the family court decide this issue. However, since you have a written agreement, you may still be able to seek relief in the form of a breach of contract claim. I would recommend talking to a lawyer about how to go about this. Good luck.
