Discounted Initial Consultation:

If a business or individual is interested in proceeding with patent or trademark work after an initial call, the next step is typically a more formal initial consultation. For individuals located in Louisiana who can easily travel to Baton Rouge in person consultations are typically held just off of Essen Lane between I-10 and I-12. For individuals located outside of Louisiana or who would have difficulty scheduling a meeting in Baton Rouge the discounted initial consultation may be handled by phone.
