Charmaine Stainbrook

After spending the first 10 years of her practice in estate planning, Charmaine joined Craig to form Stainbrook & Stainbrook, LLP, in 2006. Since that time, her practice has focused exclusively on trademark law and business formation. During her early years as an attorney Charmaine found that working directly with clients was the most rewarding part of her practice and has continued to take a hands-on approach when helping clients evaluate and select their trademarks, or make decisions about how to structure their businesses. Making a sometimes complicated and frustrating system understandable and accessible is what she does best.
