Q. What is the cost of trademarking my logo?
A: The price of a trademark varies from law firm to law firm so you should call around to a few intellectual property law firms to see what they are charging. My law firm charges a minimum of $250.00. Many times a trademark does not have the scope that the client believes it should have so make sure any attorney you speak with talks about what you are and are not getting when you register the mark. This answer is not meant to be legal advice. Please contact an attorney in your area for specific legal advice about your situation. Douglas J. Shumway is licensed to practice law in Texas and Utah.
Q. Is it illegal in the state of Utah for one motel to call another to drum up business?
A: Depending on the method utilized to "drum up business" there may or may not be any liability. There are a number of causes of action that most lawyers would be able to think of depending on what was said and sometimes even how something was said. Damages would be difficult to prove and the attorney's fees would probably be outrageous so the motel losing business would probably never really pursue the claims. If you own or work at the motel that is losing business because of the actions of another motel then I would recommend that you take whatever evidence you have and meet with a local attorney. You would want to look for a business litigation attorney rather than a transactional attorney though. The foregoing answer is provided by Douglas J Shumway, Esq.: (801) 478-8080.

Q. The buyers backed out of purchasing my home 2 days before the closing date. Do i have to give their earnest money back?
A: Whether or not you need to give the earnest money back would be wholly dependent on the terms of the REPC. Most purchase contracts would allow the seller to keep the earnest money if the buyer backed out two days before the closing was supposed to occur, but you would want a real estate lawyer to look at that before taking too aggressive a position on the issue. Most real estate lawyers will do a free consultation so don't hesitate to call around a bit to find one that fits your situation and who is willing to sit down for a bit to talk about it.
