“I have worked with Stuart on several cases. Most recently, we worked on two (2) high profile medical marijuana cases. His contributions to the case resulted in the first victory for a marijuana dispensary in Michigan and upholding a recusal of a judge who is anti-medical marijuana from a medical marijuana case. I endorse this lawyer.”
