@touchdowntodd you can go through a real trademark attorney and will run you about 2-3k to do it right, or you can look into and spend less, but will not have all the consultation service that comes with a real lawyer.

I was told the easiest way (cheap, inexpensive way) is to write everything down in a letter (brand name, people involved, business demographic, products etc), take it to the post office where it will be post marked and mail it to yourself. Store it away in a safe place unopened. If you should ever have legal issues you'll have a sealed/dated proof of use that shows the original date you started using the name. Hope this helps.

Trademarking should be unique.
