You might have seen trademark attorney Erica DiAngelo Allen on the pages of Inc. Magazine or on your local news station, educating on legal issues that affect entrepreneurs in the Tampa, FL area and around the USA.
My experience getting my logo trademarked by the DiAngelo team was smooth and absolutely painless! They were there every step of the way keeping me informed about what stage of the trademark process we were in. They even went out of their way to answer all my quick questions. For all my legal needs, I'm choosing DiAngelo in the future as my business grows.
Erica is fantastic! As a GC of a franchise portfolio company, we have significant IP needs. Erica is fast, accurate, and reliable. When circumstances or timelines change, which is often, she is always accommodating. Her firm offers small firm service and attention, but big firm work product and expertise. I would recommend her to anyone
As a new business owner and aspiring entrepreneur, I knew I needed to find someone that REALLY knew their stuff. I clicked with Erica immediately, she understood my vision and knew what it would take legally to get my business off the ground. From the trademark process, the LLC set up, setting up vendor agreements (things I thought I knew about but realized quickly I didn't know how in depth these all go), to all of the hours of research and brainstorming. Erica has been so supportive (and patient with all of my new and changing ideas!), such an amazing resource, and I feel confident launching my company knowing all the legalities of my start up have been well researched, thought out, and done with purpose and to the highest standards. I highly recommend Erica to any business owner whether you are just starting out or are well established. Thank you Erica!
Erica is an incredible attorney who can navigate entrepreneurs with the best knowledge, experience and professionalism. If you know someone who is going to start a business or is already in the process, they need to speak to Erica. One conversation today could save you thousands of hours of headaches and dollars later!
Erica really came through for me. I had personally filed for a trademark for my company but it was initially rejected by the patent office. I contacted Erica DiAngelo for help. She stepped right it, filed an appeal, cut through the red tape, and got my trademark approved. She did this in a timely fashion at a reasonable price. There were no add-on costs or extra charges. Should the need arise, I would definitely use this firm in the future
Such a comfortable attorney experience! Erica is easy to work with and very knowledgeable about business law and how to best protect businesses and prepare them for success. As a business owner myself, I know I am in great hands with Erica. I highly recommend her legal services to any business owner.
Thank you Erica!

She takes the time to listen to my individual business needs and all of the work has been thorough and quality. Now I keep her on retainer because I know she is reliable when anything comes up. Highly recommend DiAngelo law to other business owners!
Words are not enough to express my gratitude for Erica & the DiAngelo Law team in getting my trademark approved. My trademark was likely a challenge but Erica was persistent and tenacious in working with the USPTO to get it done. Thank you, Erica, for making my dream come true! I highly recommend DiAngelo Law for any patent & trademark case!
DiAngelo Law was a pleasure to work with. Not only did they handle all of my companies needs, but the firm went above and beyond. I highly recommend Diangelo Law.
