A: The law prevents attorneys from "price fixing" or agreeing to charge a uniform fee for services so this is not the place to get an answer on fees. That said, I can understand your desire to get a sense of what costs might be involved before you retain an attorney. Some firms might post fees on their own individual websites or you might privately reach out to a few different intellectual property ("IP") attorneys and ask about their pricing.

While not legal advice I hope that this helps.

A: The cost of obtaining a trademark for "Train Like A Freak" would depend on various factors, such as whether you hire an attorney or file the application yourself, the number of classes of goods or services you apply for, and the potential challenges or oppositions to your application.

Filing fees for a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) range from $225 to $400 per class of goods or services, depending on the filing basis and type of application. If you hire an attorney to assist you, their fees could range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars depending on their experience and services provided.

Additionally, if any challenges or oppositions are filed against your trademark application, you may need to pay additional fees for legal representation and other related expenses.

Overall, the total cost to obtain a trademark for "Train Like A Freak" can vary widely depending on your specific situation. It may be helpful to consult with a trademark attorney who can provide a more accurate estimate based on your unique circumstances.
