To Trademark or Not To Trademark?

Can anyone please tell about trademarking and/or registering a name/logo and biz concept? I would really like to get the ball rolling on my venture and I feel that securing my business name , logo and concept would be the first step. My concept is in the service industry . I want to be sure I own the name and logo at least. Do I have to trademark them or register them? Do I do both name and logo on one form or both separately? As for concept, I`m not sure if  I can "own" that-or can I?  How about cost for doing this? Should I consult a lawyer or do it on my own?Some help in answering these questions would be greatly appreciated!
                                         Thanks in advance,
