Lerae and her team at Funderburg Law are top tier! We started the trademark process at the beginning of 2021 and ended the year with my federally registered mark! She ensured I covered all of my grounds and added any classes I'd need for all that my brand entails. If I recommend a professional because of their services, just know they're the TRUTH. That is the case for Lerae Funderburg, Esq. and her team. Hire them and protect your intellectual property!
I went into business with Lerae in 2016. I remember needing to make a shift in regards to my legal representation. My business was so unorganized, money left on the table, LLC's dissolved (a mess lol). Leare came right in, with passion. A sense of urgency and intention. Over the past five years I've seen so much growth in my deal structures, and honestly most money I've ever seen thus far. She's thorough, she fights for you, she's transparent and business aside, a remarkable, strong black woman I consider a true friend. Thank you for all you do and have done for me. I appreciate you.
Easily the best legal experience I have ever had! Lerae is a through and creative wealth of knowledge who makes working with law enjoyable. She was able to edit and strengthen the contracts that I previously had created by other lawyers. I have learned so much from her about how to set up my business, and feel confident that my precious company is well protected. I definitely recommend everyone to go to this expert!
