Orange County Trademark attorney and business litigation lawyer – Anthony Cartee – began his legal career in 2005. He started in Chicago as a trial lawyer honing his litigation skills. In 2007, Anthony moved home to California and joined a “lifestyle” firm as an associate lawyer focused on business and intellectual property litigation. Unfortunately, Anthony learned that “lifestyle” translates into associates maintaining their partners’ lifestyle – nothing to do with a West Coast ‘vibe…” Disappointed and wanting to make a difference for clients rather than partners, Anthony Cartee set up his own law practice in 2008.

Anthony Cartee’s law practice, Cartee, LC, concentrates on trademarks, copyrights, and IP litigation specifically aimed at small, growing businesses that were traditionally priced out of hiring passionate, effective counsel.
