Jasen McDaniel, executive director of the Jeffers, Danielson, Sonn & Aylward law firm, has expanded services to help clients navigate the potentially tricky waters of marijuana legalization in Washington state.

“One of the caveats of the slow spread of legalization is that this growing industry is so highly regulated; pioneering a new business in a new industry with a host of specified laws leave many budding players overwhelmed,” says McDaniel, who adds that Googling your way through this new area of law isn’t an option.

“Many entrepreneurs are looking to establish the next dynasty in a new industry, so they want to get it right. There are so many considerations, and that’s why we’ve recently put extra emphasis on helping clients navigate the potentially tricky waters of marijuana legalization in Washington state.”

JDSA was established in 1946 and has become one of the largest law firms between Seattle and Spokane. Every major group of legal practice is represented at the firm. However, McDaniel says it’s not so large a law firm to merit concern.

“Contrary to what many believe, the biggest law firms are not necessarily the best,” McDaniel says. “The mark of an optimal firm should be measured in five dimensions: capability, clients, reputation, collegiality and profitability. Having at least 100 lawyers is not the sure sign of your best option, especially when you consider location. The most important ingredient when making an attorney selection is chemistry and trust, not who has the highest rate.”

One liability you may run into with a very large, sprawling law firm is feeling like you’re lost in the mix. While clients want to know that a firm has the prestige, experience and resources, they want to know that all parties within a firm are working together – that one hand knows what the other is doing, he says.

“With JDSA, you don't hire a single attorney, you hire an entire team,” McDaniel says. “From small businesses and individuals, to large corporations and institutions, we take great care and pride in our shared commitment to take on your issue and work toward resolution, as efficiently as possible.”
