A: You are probably referring to registering a trademark in the USA.

The government fees vary from $225 to over $300

Attorney fees should run from $1,000 to $1,500

That should include a number of searches to identify potential conflicts, advise in how to minimize conflicts, the actual filing, and depending on the attorney a few responses to minor office actions.

There may be extra fees if you are not using the mark in commerce and you need to submit proof of that use later.

Note that some websites announce filings for under $100. But it does not include any searches or consultations, and then each response to even minor issues will cost you an arm and a leg.
