I certainly can?t speak for all recent law school graduates these days, but what I do know is that there are quite a few that feel that job prospects are getting few and far between. According to the (only registered users can se the link, login or register), graduates from law school only have a ?a little more than a 50-50 shot at landing a job within 9 months?. This may be true but what some lawyers are starting to expand on, that they most likely did not cover in law school, is medical (only registered users can se the link, login or register) law; a subject which could foster hundreds of thousands of clients and millions of dollars in revenue for law firms across the country.
Whenever you do a Google search on the topic of medical (only registered users can se the link, login or register) law, you?ll most likely find that the majority of search results are regarding people offering service to others who have been charged with possession of (only registered users can se the link, login or register), which is a bit of ?old news?. (This is especially true if you are located within a state that does not allow legal medical (only registered users can se the link, login or register).) These types of defense attorneys have been doing the same thing for years and with the right amount of cash, they can probably do a pretty good job of reducing your charge and salving your record. However, if you dig a little deeper, you?ll find companies that specialize in medical cannabis law, such as the (only registered users can se the link, login or register) of Seattle, Washington? a somewhat newer breed of specialized law.
Although we have never met nor worked with the Canna Law Group? from a glance, we like what we see within their documentation and language. With the ever-changing and molding of law and regulation within the medical (only registered users can se the link, login or register) industry, you want to see a law group that is well-connected and well tuned-in with the demographic of their potential clients. Canna Law Group states their understanding of this immediately within the first paragraph of their about page:
We are experienced business lawyers and civil litigators focused on the complicated language of amended RCW 69.51A, ?Medical Cannabis,? and (only registered users can se the link, login or register). We will incorporate your cannabis business and also help you navigate the ever-changing state and local cannabis laws so you can provide either patient-related services through your collective garden access point or I-502 cannabis retailing, growing, testing, or processing to adults 21 and older. We will also be on the front lines in Olympia as the Liquor Control Board begins to develop licensing rules and regulations for cannabis selling, growing, and processing?
Unlike other business lawyers that jumped on the cannabis bandwagon when the passage of I-502 looked imminent, we have been in the cannabis law trenches for years, and it is that experience that separates us from our competition. Let our experience and knowledge help you run a successful collective garden cooperative or a state licensed grow, retail store, or processing operation under I-502.Canna Law Group connects with potential clients and patients through their social media and blog, which is how we came to find them. You simply do not see many law groups within this niche updating social media and (only registered users can se the link, login or register) regularly from what we have seen. We feel if you are a prospective cannabis lawyer, this is going to become a necessity: staying in tune with the digital age and enlightening others on the laws of medical (only registered users can se the link, login or register) through a website or personal blog. It not only communicates your understanding of law, but ensures your potential clients that you are in the loop and out there for the greater good of the cause, not just to make a quick buck.
Although the Canna Law Group classifies lawyers flocking to the new law frontier of medical (only registered users can se the link, login or register) as jumping on the ?cannabis bandwagon?, we feel there really is no shame in a lawyer starting to expand to this type of law. It?s a new trend in the marketplace and much different from a technology-related trend, you can do your homework ahead of time before the laws get passed in your area to have a jump on the competition. Generally, there?s not many scenarios where you have the ability to predict what laws will be passed years ahead of time and this seems to be something that would not hurt to brush up on if you are already in the law profession. It?s impossible to tell when the law will spread to certain states but initiatives are getting stronger by the minute, as you can tell if you are somewhat in the loop at all.
Lastly, one important point to remember, as we always harp on within our posts, is best summarized within a disclaimer that is placed on every single page of Canna Law Group?s website:

Please also note that the internal revenue service (IRS) will not recognize your entity as a not-for-profit for federal tax purposes so you may need to pay federal taxes just as though you were a for-profit entity.Whether you are a struggling lawyer looking to expand your knowledge and client base or a prospective business owner, these types of law firms are setting examples and making waves in the legal trenches of medical (only registered users can se the link, login or register) law.
