What Sets Our Cannabis Lawyers Apart?

We have worked with dozens of cannabis companies over the years, from mom-and-pops to major players. From California to Florida, New Jersey to Colorado, and all states in between where some form of cannabis or hemp is legal, we have helped individuals like you achieve their business goals. With each new client, our experience in the legal aspects of cannabis becomes more nuanced and refined as we have to adapt to specific state laws and regulations.

As a result, today we are well versed in the cannabis laws of every state in America. Our founding attorney, Thomas Howard, spent his first ten years as a lawyer becoming a licensed stock broker (Series 7 & 66 licenses) and then representing financial institutions on secured transactions. We have put together a short survey for new clients to better help us gain an understanding of your company and business goals.

A good cannabis lawyer will help you with cannabis business formation & operation, zoning & permitting, and compliance with local & state licensing.
