Summary

I am the founder and principal of a boutique criminal defense law firm located in Rockville, Maryland. I am licensed to practice law in both federal and state courts in Maryland and the District of Columbia. Since 2011, I have been recognized by Super Lawyers Magazine (a peer reviewed attorney publication) as among the top 5% of criminal defense lawyers practicing -- both in Maryland and the District of Columbia. My areas of practice and concentration include criminal defense, white collar criminal defense, dui/dwi defense, traffic matters, Internet crime and fraud, computer fraud, as well as governance and compliance matters for corporations and groups. The Medical Cannabis Law Group (MCLG) is a division of the Law Office of Mike Rothman. The goal of the MCLG is to assist stakeholders (patients, doctors, providers, and caregivers) in medical cannabis states in their transition to the new, regulated medical cannabis marketplace. For more than 10 years, I have been assisting individuals and policy makers with regulatory and legal questions pertaining to medical cannabis, its regulation, compliance, and use. I am licensed to practice law in Maryland and the District of Columbia. But I have consulted on medical cannabis matters across the country.
