I have been involved in branding for more than 25 years - first as a marketing and advertising executive and now as an IP lawyer. I love helping companies bring their brands to life and protect them.
Stacey is a fantastic lawyer and wonderful to work with. She helped our company protect our new logo and trademark and we are thrilled with the result. Stacey was always attentive to our needs and expertly guided us through the process. If you need an attorney to help with intellectual property issues, I highly recommend hiring Stacey. She is a true superstar and one of the best people I know.
Stacey was always quick to respond to my inquiries when I sought her expertise as Trademark Counsel. As someone with very little experience in trademarking, I had many questions for Stacey and she always explained with clarity and patience. More importantly, she understood my concerns as a marketer, which helped make our working relationship much more collaborative.
I quickly learned that before Stacey became an attorney, she was an advertising agency professional--and that experience and background really came through. Not only did she bring legal expertise and exceptional people skills to our engagement, but she truly understood our industry and all the nuances the advertising world brings. There's no one I would rather work with. She truly demonstrates and delivers the highest levels of integrity and professionalism at every touch point.
Stacey is personable with clients, she meets deadlines and has concise strategies to address the issues in your case. She is up to date on the latest information in her field of expertise. She is easy to reach, which is a blessing when working with attorneys. Stacey honors your time and charges reasonable prices for her services, yet delivers beyond expectations. She is highly recommended by me, as well as my business partner.
Our fees are mostly based on a fixed fee schedule, except for pre-litigation and litigation. We offer a free initial consultation to better understand the scope of the project and determine how we can best assist. We work virtually with most of our clients via email and telephone, but are always happy to meet in person if you prefer. We require pre-payment for all projects via credit card.
I am an intellectual property attorney with a specific focus on trademark, copyright and advertising law.

I am been recognized by my peers as a Super Lawyer® for my outstanding knowledge and services in intellectual property law, a recognition and honor given to just 5% of the lawyers in Illinois.
How I Can Help Your Business:
• Conducting trademark availability searches
• Filing trademark applications at the USPTO
• Responding to Office Actions
• Renewing trademarks
• Drafting and responding to cease and desist letters
• Initiating and defending all types of intellectual property litigation
To assist clients in leveraging their trademarks, I have negotiated and drafted all types of licenses, sponsorship, joint promotion, and vendor/agency agreements that affect brands. Most importantly, to protect their brands, clients must be sure their trademarks and other intellectual property assets are used properly, and we regularly counsel our clients on these issues.
Prior to becoming an attorney, I worked for more than ten years as a marketing manager and advertising director for multi-national consumer packaged goods companies, which provides a unique insight into my clients' businesses and allows me to understand the business-based legal solutions you need. I am highly passionate about branding.
