Since you are not allowed to register for a trademark that would likely cause confusion with other marks for related goods and services, a trademark search can prevent problems before you even start the application process.
LegalZoom's Basic and Complete Coverage trademark packages each include a direct-hit search of the USPTO database to check for federally registered or applied-for marks that are identical to yours.
LegalZoom's Comprehensive Trademark Search package casts a much wider net by searching to reveal potential conflicts beyond those that are simply identical. This search looks for marks very similar to yours, including those with different spellings, plus active trademarks and pending applications in all 50 states.
