It Takes a Team To Buy Into or Sell Out of This Industry Martina Will Bring The Most Efficient and Effective Team To Your Project

Cannabis compliance with all local, municipal, state and federal law, rules, codes and regulations is step one.  A tax attorney, M&A specialist and forensic accountant are a phone call away and you will only get one bill.  I will not have multiple attorneys looking at the same piece of information. Efficient and effective client service.


Your needs Vary Depending on Where You Are Now, and Where You Want to Go

Nobody knows it all, so my first step will be to listen to you.  I will  want to know you and your team.  I will consider your 5 year plan before I charge you a dime.  The attorney-client relationship should always be a close one, but in cannabis it's personal.  Personal is what I do best. A law firm that says it is 'national' does not mean it has an attorney in every state, or that they cover every area of law. If they do not have a cannabis specialist, they cannot meet your needs.

An Advocate for Regulations That Protect Cannabis Professionals

She has  been able to specialize in this   area as a result of her exceptional legal service and rial experience, followed by deep involvement in the cannabis legal industry.   In 2014 Ms. Jaccarino contributed to Nevada's Medical Marijuana Program and represented the recipient of four of Nevada's legal marijuana licenses.  While continuing her litigation relationships, she represented licensees through the rigorous inspection process.  She continues to work with entities entering the market.

What We Are Doing Now


Settlement Advisor

 Martina  has completed 16 jury trials and is happy to step into the court- room. However, the vast majority of cases settle. What’s most important is that the client know the earliest opportunity for settlement and the appropriate amount. Too often, cases seem to drag on and on and the defense attorney seems to have an inability to resolve the litigation. Then,  after years of paperwork, a miraculous settlement is reached. Legal services are a personal service, no matter the size of the client. Corporate clients should be particularly confident that their attorney will settle cases that need to be settled because they traditionally have a long-term relationship with at least one of the partners in the firm. However, their confidence in settlement can only be comensurate with the number of people between themselves and the attorney on the ground.  Martina’s extensive  experience with corporate clients makes her very skilled at identifying cases that can be settled at an early opportunity and even more capable of getting the results the client needs.

However, once the company starts making money, the people thbuilt the company in exchange for small amounts of equity may start to see the relationship deteriorate.

My Blog

Most cannabis-centered attorneys are focused on state and municipal regulations, which is very important.  However, owners need to know that the Federal Government, through its various agencies has been regulating all aspects of the marijuana plant for many years. For more information, call me directly.
