Interested in expert legal advice on a case of trademark infringement.

We created an original mark for our company that has been in commercial use for a year. Recently, another company began using the same mark and filed an intent-to-use trademark application.

This raises a few legal questions, namely:

a) Should we now file our trademark with USPTO?
b) Should we first directly contact the infringing party?
c) Should we wait a month for the gazette to be published to contest the trademark via USPTO?

I'm interested in the legal advice on these questions (probably 1hr worth of work) and any helpful suggestions. I will provide both logos and the exact details in a PDF document. Additional projects will likely be created for related legal tasks going forward. Max price: $100.
