South Carolina personal injury attorney George T. Sink named his son after himself—but now he is suing George T. Sink Jr. over their similar law firm names.

Sink Jr. opened George Sink II Law Firm in February, a few days after he was terminated from his father’s firm, George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers, according to Sink Sr.’s lawsuit in South Carolina federal court.

Sink Sr.’s firm, George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers, claims the name of the new firm infringes on the older firm’s trademark and could lead to confusion with clients or on Google searches, according to the April 25 complaint.
