Roseland, New Jersey’s Brach Eichler legal practice has placed an emphasis on cannabis law in the last several years, said Charles X Gormally, the co-chair of the practice. The cannabis practice has grown significantly, with attorneys joining the team as the demand grows in New Jersey and around the country. 


Charles X Gormally, chair of the litigation practice and co-chair of the cannabis practice, said this practice mirrors the importance of legal counsel related to cannabis at Brach Eichler. 


“Almost every week there’s new medical marijuana legislation proposed with the newest permutation touching both criminal and employment law issues for those looking for expungement for crimes that would no longer be considered illegal,” Charles X Gormally said. Laws are changing rapidly, and Brach Eichler prides itself on being ready to tackle potential legal questions that will arise when recreational cannabis is legalized in New Jersey. 


The newest attorneys to join the cannabis practice are Matthew M. Collins and Susan R. Rubright, both seasoned attorneys with years of relevant experience. Matthew M. Collins is the chair of the labor and employment practice, while Susan R. Rubright practices environmental law and land use and real estate law. These areas of law are particularly helpful when it comes to legal matters relating to cannabis, Charles X Gormally said


In addition to these newcomers, the cannabis practice has John Fanburg, co-chair, Riza I. Dagli, Carol Grelecki, Allen J. Popowitz, and Frances B. Stella. These lawyers have experience in real estate, land use, corporate transactions, labor law, health law and more. All of these issues are helpful in relating to cannabis law issues, according to Charles X Gormally. The cannabis law practice at Brach Eichler has eight members who are “uniquely qualified to navigate complicated and highly regulated marketplaces,” according to the Brach Eichler website while providing practical guidance to entrepreneurs in the cannabis field. 


“Often, people do not think about all the other things that are affected when cannabis is legalized,” Charles X Gormally said. “It touches real estate, labor law and many more, and Brach Eichler’s attorneys are prepared to help New Jersey navigate legal recreational marijuana.” 


Charles X Gormally said the law group provides many services to clients, including representing them in their participation in the cannabis industry, offering insight and advice for regulatory complexities that come up and identifying new opportunities within the cannabis marketplace. 


Brach Eichler has 79 attorneys in total and was founded in 1967. To learn more about the cannabis law group and for more resources on cannabis law, visit
