Trademarks: Standing Out in a Crowd

Season 2, Episode 2 – May 20, 2017

A trademark is a word or series of words, sometimes with a logo, utilized to distinguish a product or service. A trademark has to be distinctively different. Not only to make you notice it, but also to ensure you do not get the mark confused with another brand, and unintentionally purchase the other brand’s product. So, how do you create a prominent trademark? And, how do you protect it? In this episode, Laraine Burrell discusses Trademarks: Standing Out in A Crowd.


How to Know if You Have Water Rights

Season 2, Episode 3– June 6, 2017

Water is a public resource. No one owns water, itself. However, the legal right to use water is abundant, and sensibly referred to as a water right. Most have heard the term, but what does it mean to “have” water rights? And, how should this affect your decision to purchase a piece of land? In this episode, Caitlyn Evans discusses How to Know if You Have Water Rights.


When to Hire an Appellate Lawyer

Season 2, Episode 4 – June 13, 2017

Appellate Law is another stage in the litigation process. After a trial has reached a resolution or ruling, the appellate courts can be a “second look” to determine whether a decision was supported by facts, or legally correct. So, how do you know what decisions can be appealed – and what considerations should be made before considering an appeal? Described as “the litigation after the litigation”, in this episode, Lee Lewis discusses When to Hire an Appellate Lawyer.
