A: When considering a trademark for a business, you should ensure that the trademark is not confusingly similar to another mark being used for the same class of goods/services. You should also register the trademark with the USPTO if you will use it in commerce. It is recommended that you consult with a trademark attorney to assist you with this process. Filing fee for trademark registration is approx. $250-350 per class.

I agree with the prior response. Every individual trademark attorney will have his or her own process for assisting clients with trademark registration and related matters, as well as individual service fees. The filing fees are as described in the prior response.
Keep in mind that, generally, trademark practice is Federal in scope, often entirely virtual, and that you need not look for an attorney exclusively in your geographic area for legal assistance.
A: Consult with an attorney to review your options and process.
