Summary

Michael Stevens has a background in insurance defense representing individuals to large corporations in a wide variety of cases from personal injury to wrongful death and construction defects. He handled cases with values of as much as $4 million, and drafted many successful motions for summary judgment. An Oregon native, he graduated from Oregon State University with his bachelor’s degree and earned his juris doctorate at Willamette University College of Law in Salem in 2009. At Willamette he was an editor and writer for Willamette Law Online and the Web & Publication Editor for the Willamette Sports Law Journal. He is married with two daughters and lives in Hillsboro.

Most of his practice consists of personal injuries (auto accidents, dog bites), employment law (final paychecks, discrimination), and business law (LLC formation, registered agent). He also is not afraid to take on the big insurance companies when needed.

Q. Can I trademark Floyd D Duck? I think the trademark has lapsed
A: Looks like the company is still using the mark, so likely not: https://www.hersheys.com/en_us/our-brands/bubble-yum.html
Q. Probation periods and how do they work?
A: I would suggest contacting a law firm that handles union cases (labor law), such as McKanna Bishop Joffe, as they handle those types of cases. The probation period and rules associated with it should be in the collective bargaining agreement, which the union would have a copy of.
Q. How do I get copyright of my photos?
A: I'll add that the registration process is all online these days, and something like $30 per registration. But, the process takes a fair amount of time after you submit the registration before it is officially registered. As in, it is not instantaneous.
