"I worked with Elan after my initial trademark application was denied by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Elan communicated in an effective manner what was needed to craft an effective response so that my trademark could be registered successfully. He drafted a response for me in a matter of days, and was able to do this in a cost-effective manner. His response worked, and I was able to register my trademarks. A++ would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs trademark assistance!"
