Nicole decided to practice trademarks after realizing how many businesses in her hometown of Portland, Oregon were being forced to re-brand because they didn’t have someone helping them search for trademarks or register theirs. Nicole’s main focus is to prevent re-branding and to protect businesses. Thus she started Yellow Dog Legal. Yellow Dog Legal is all about protection. Protecting your business. Protecting your brand. Protecting your vision. The best part? Yellow Dog Legal is a virtual, boutique firm, so you know you’re getting excellent service without having to pay for a fancy office. Trademarks are the federal registration of your business name, logo, slogan, products, etc. As such. Yellow Dog Legal can handle trademarks from all 50 states and is a national firm.
If you’d like to learn more, call Yellow Dog Legal at 971-350-8516 or complete an intake form to schedule a free and confidential consultation.

Yellow Dog Legal is a virtual law office run by an Oregon trademark and small business attorney. Essentially, you don’t have to drive to an office and we can communicate easily through an online medium, such as email, Skype, or a secure online client portal.

This allows Nicole to charge less in legal fees than other attorneys.
I was referred to Yellow Dog Legal from the Oregon State Bar Association. I had a great experience working with them. Nicole Schaefer went above and beyond with solid info to help resolve my problem. I felt that Nicole was truly interested in helping us. Easy to work with and very responsive communication. To me, good communication is the most important thing (other firms didn't even contact me back). Thank you!- VK
