"I’ve worked with Aileen to have a trademark registered with the USPTO. The laws around this trademark and emerging industry are new and controversial. However, Aileen was able to navigate even the toughest interpretations to ultimately land me a trademark that secures and protects my business’s novelty. She is knowledgeable, reliable, and a great communicator with fast responses. I always felt taken care of -she always had things under control. Made the process easy and stress-free. It was seamless from start to finish. She’s trustworthy and experienced. She ensured deadlines were on track, even when I was not. She provided exactly what I needed as a busy entrepreneur. I am so happy that my startup’s logo is finally recognized and protected on a federal level. I cannot thank her enough for making this happen, when others have told me it might not be possible. Thank you Aileen!"

"When I needed to file two trademarks I reached out to Ask IP Law. I couldn't be happier with the work they have done for me. Aileen is always responsive, the work is turned around in a timely manner, and she keeps me updated every step of the way. Any time I have a question, she is there to help. As a small business owner, I not only look at Ask IP Law as another business to help me accomplish my goals, but I see them as a true business partner, helping me to protect and grow my business. Ask IP Law is so great I've recommended them to many friends and I recommend you check them out also!"

"My experience with Aileen was more than I could have hoped for. I have never needed nor used an attorney before. I was intimidated to seek one out to help me copyright and trademark a children's book series. Aileen is responsive and professional in her communication, and her approach was always customer-focused. I did not feel like I was out of the loop, and she did not hesitate to reach out to me to get clarification on what my needs were. I am so grateful to have found such a professional and courteous patent attorney to work with me and guide me through an overwhelming process of creating a children's book series."

"Working with Aileen and JC from ASK IP LAW was very enjoyable and efficient. I was unfamiliar with much of the patenting process since I was a first time filer, however, they explained every detail and walked me through all questions and concerns I had. Their approach was very welcoming and they fully took the time to protect my invention from every angle. I could not be more satisfied and grateful for their work and would highly recommend this firm to everyone. I plan to continue to work with them for all future cases."

"Working with Aileen has been so wonderful! She is extremely communicative and always answers my questions with detail, and in a language I can understand. Some attorneys are in a rush, or just gloss over things, but Aileen takes the time to research and respond. She has made the task of obtaining a trademark actually enjoyable!"

"Last year, I realized a long time dream of starting my own business. A trusted friend recommended ASK IP LAW and I am so glad they did. I received all of the legal guidance I needed to feel confident to as I went through the daunting process of starting out. But beyond all of that, I received all kinds of extra advice and support. One year later, I remain so grateful for our partnership."
