Amicus Brief

People of the State of California v. Jessica Claire McElfresh

Amicus Brief to the Superior court of the State of California

The National Cannabis Bar Association and other Amici strongly believe that attorneys representing cannabis clients should not be bereft of the privacy and confidentiality normally afforded to clients merely because they serve as first responders to an emerging industry that happens to be caught in the cross-hairs of conflicting state and federal law.

The importance of the attorney-client privilege cannot be overstated, as it forms the foundation of the trust that clients need if they are to seek legal counsel.
