If you are an attorney:
We assist family and criminal lawyers wherever possible by providing research, non-legal organizational and legal referrals, affidavits or letters of support, assistance obtaining expert testimony, or other help on relevant cases pending or ongoing in state and federal courts. Please note that we generally cannot help everyone who contacts us or assist with every case but endeavor to answer every request from an attorney within four business days. If you require a more urgent response, please let us know and we will do our best to respond accordingly.
If you represent parents and guardians in child protection or custody actions in your jurisdiction’s family court, join our national network of practitioners by completing the short form below. Support from practicing family law attorneys all over the United States is of fundamental value to FLCA and its operations, and can take several forms.
- Become part of FLCA’s no-cost internal referral network. If you represent parents and guardians in child protection or custody actions in your jurisdiction’s family court, join our national network of practitioners. When we receive a request for assistance from a parent, we screen them as potential clients to gather basic information and refer appropriately to local licensed attorneys using this internal list. We offer direct counsel up-to-date, expert consultation on rapidly-evolving marijuana laws and their intersection with child welfare policy. In addition, we assist lawyers in obtaining expert affidavits and locating relevant scientific and public health evidence to supplement briefs.
- Build your state’s profile. Contribute to the Fifty State Profiles Project by keeping us apprised of new laws, changes to existing CPS or marijuana laws and policies, and case law.
- Link your website via FLCA’s. Send us your information to be included on our public Links page under “Attorneys.” We can supply our logo or web banner should you like to link back to ours.
- Use our model legislation and regulations. We have drafted language protective of parental rights to be included in proposed marijuana reform laws.
