After feeling creatively uninspired in the practice of law, I took the leap into entrepreneurship and started my own lifestyle photography studio. n an effort to help more business owners, I launched the Stock Gallery, a unique and high quality styled stock photography membership site for women in business.
After a decade in business I realized I could help entrepreneurs with the legal side of their businesses. From forming their companies, to protecting their creations, to drafting and negotiating contracts, I wanted to provide easy and accessible legal consult to fellow entrepreneurs, and thus Influencer Legal was born.

When you are ready to invest in protecting your business, trademarking is one of the most important and valuable things you can do. But the big question is, after spending the time and money to file your trademark application, is “will my trademark actually get registered?”
Although there is no way to answer this as the USPTO takes and examines every application on a case by case basis, they do use a sliding scale to determine the strength of your proposed mark.
Here is the scale, weakest to strongest.
We can never say whether a trademark will get approved and registered by the USPTO as the examining attorney will examine each application on a case by case basis. However, this is a good guideline and something to think about when you are starting to consider whether or not to register your trademark.
