The Polite Gunfighter™
One time I was in North Carolina doing some specialty shooting sports training,
and there was an exercise where we were shooting and moving around vehicles. At
one point I said to my partner: "please cover me." Everyone cracked up
laughing-- you don't need to say please when asking someone to cover you during
a gun battle. That night, we had trivia night at the local pub and as a result
of that morning's experience, I coined the team name: The Polite Gunfighters.
This was in 2018. It stuck, and I've used the phrase ever since to describe
myself and my style of practicing law. So I went ahead and trademarked it,
haha. What do you all think? Is it too much to call myself this? I don't
think so, I just want feedback ;)

Nothing is too colorful these days. Go for it. It’s better than Alabama Hammer
coined by Mike Slocumb. How about this dude in crim law? https://youtu.be/i_iaugcJW7Q?feature=shared
Polite gunfighter gives the vibe of an aggressive style of representation that
still respects the opposing party.

I received notification that my trademark was approved for publication and will
be published in early February. Assuming no one opposes it, I'll have it
granted within about 10 weeks. It's interesting representing yourself at USPTO.
On my last application for a different trademark, I had to argue with the
examining attorney via email about the specimens I submitted. I can see why
most people hire a lawyer to represent them in this process. Even being a
lawyer, it was not obvious what to do or say in this scenario. I do have one
existing client who asked me to help with his trademark office actions, which
look way more complicated than mine. Thankfully, one of the lawyers in my firm
has USPTO prosecution experience.
