Marijuana cultivation, manufacture, and distribution for medical and recreational use is one of the United States’ newest and most exciting industries, particularly here in California. Northern California has one of the most competitive cannabis markets and industries in the nation. While the laws around medical marijuana have been fairly established since it became legal in 1996, even people who follow these laws can run into problems with the federal government and need the help of an attorney to keep their record clean. Many people who are veterans of the medical cannabis industry have found it much easier to incorporate the newer recreational cannabis laws into their businesses with the help of a knowledgeable attorney, rather than trying to do this on their own. At The Hallinan Law Firm, our associates are dedicated to providing the best possible legal counsel for cannabis businesses. We offer a full range of services, from compliance to licensing, from zoning to criminal defense if necessary.
Personal Injury Law
When someone in the United States is injured or becomes ill because of another person or party’s negligence, malice or reckless behavior, the victim of this and often their family too, may be entitled to compensation for expenses related to their injury. Common reasons victims and/or their families try to hold the person or entity that caused the victim’s harm liable for their wrongdoings, is to get financial compensation for such things as medical bills, loss of income, loss of earning potential, potential future medical costs, physical and/or psychological therapy, and loss of abilities, as well as for things such as pain and suffering. In the horrific situation that a family member unexpectedly dies because of one of the reasons mentioned above, they may be able to hold the person or party that caused their loved one’s death, accountable for their wrongdoing.
If you are injured and someone else is at fault, a knowledgeable, experienced attorney is the most important advocate you will need early on to ensure that you are properly compensated as soon as possible. The sooner you have a trustworthy attorney on your side, the sooner they can start defending your rights and building a strong case for you. Our associates are ready to assist you in obtaining what you are owed.
