Orlando, Fla. - August 26, 2014 - The Health Law Firm announces the addition of a new Medical Marijuana practice area. Attorneys with The Health Law Firm will focus on representing physicians, pharmacists, dispensers, prescribers, and other health care providers and facilities in the area of medical marijuana as it relates to health law.Specifically, The Health Law Firm will assist health care providers and facilities in completing applications for registration, permitting and licensing, as well as drafting contracts that comply with Florida law. The Health Law Firm's attorneys will provide compliance guidance to verify health care providers and facilities are practicing within state laws and regulations, and offer counsel on avoiding violations of applicable federal laws. The Health Law Firm will also represent health care providers and facilities in investigations conducted by the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), the Florida Department of Health (DOH), and various licensing and regulatory authorities, including the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).The Health Law Firm understands that when it comes to legalizing medical marijuana, health care providers and facilities may face difficult legal situations. Florida authorities and professional boards are now left to sort out many regulatory details before doctors and dispensaries can sell medical marijuana."We already work with or have cases with many of these regulatory organizations. This makes it an easy transition for our firm to represent health care providers and facilities wanting to get into the medical marijuana industry," said George F. Indest III, President and Managing Partner of The Health Law Firm. With offices in Florida and Colorado, The Health Law Firm exclusively represents health care providers. Services provided by the firm include representation in Department of Health (DOH) investigations, reviewing and negotiating employment contracts, professional license and credential defense, representation at formal and informal administrative hearings, peer review defense, Medicare and Medicaid audits, formation of corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs), medical board hearings, medical marijuana representation, and other matters of Health Law.For more information about The Health Law Firm, visit http://www.thehealthlawfirm.com.For printable, downloadable photos, visit: http://www.thehealthlawfirm.com/resources/online-press-kit.html.
