Our Attorney

Audrey K. Chisholm, Esq.

Founder / Attorney

Audrey’s passion for helping people protect themselves with trademarks came from adversity when she learned that three different organizations were fraudulently using the name of her nonprofit organization, Revolution Leadership, Inc., in two different states and overseas without authorization.

Already a talented attorney, Audrey immediately immersed herself in studying trademark law. She began researching advanced legal strategies and studied methods used by global brands to protect themselves. As a result, she developed her own proprietary methodology which uses sophisticated legal techniques to provide maximum legal protection for brands both large and small.

Her reputation as a trademark attorney continued to grow and she was hired to represent her first Fortune 500 company in 2014. Since then, she has successfully registered federal trademarks for clients throughout the United States and internationally and regularly advises clients on ways to best protect their brand, logo, business name, and other forms of intellectual property. She has a 100% success rate for federal trademarks. Disclaimer: Past results do not determine future outcomes

 

Nonprofit Practice:

Audrey’s passion for helping people start their own nonprofit organizations came from adversity. She started her nonprofit, Revolution Leadership, Inc., as a college student. Although she had big dreams for the organization – she couldn’t seem to get grants or donations to help grow the organization. She paid for the expenses of the nonprofit out of her own pocket from her summer internships and was only able to host smaller programs due to the limited budget.
Things changed when began studying nonprofit law while in law school. She learned strategies that major law firms used when forming nonprofits for their clients and studied the best practices of the most successful nonprofits. She realized that due to the the way her nonprofit was structured – she was missing out on funding opportunities. Using her newfound legal knowledge, she obtained 501c3 tax-exempt status and grew her nonprofit into an organization that serves 1,550 students and has awarded 26 college scholarships. As a result, Revolution Leadership® receives major grants from Wells Fargo®, Enterprise® as well as corporate sponsorships from Wal-mart®, Olive Garden® and Chick-fil-A®.
She graduated from law school and started Chisholm Law Firm, LLC – a firm that would help others form nonprofits that would be eligible for major grant funding. Mrs. Chisholm’s nonprofit practice includes having successfully formed 501c3 tax-exempt nonprofit organizations for clients throughout the United States ranging from startups to a Fortune 500 company. She has successfully established the following types of nonprofits: youth organizations, schools, churches, ministries, healthcare organizations, drug rehabilitation programs, animal rights organizations, homelessness prevention centers, cancer patient services, athletic services, women’s issues, marriage enrichment organizations and more.  She has a 100% success rate for 501c3 nonprofit approvals by the IRS.
