All too often your facility or program receives a call from a family member seeking to engage your services. Unfortunately the family cannot make their loved one voluntarily go for treatment. Interventions may have been tried and have failed. The family requests advice from you.
TELL THEM ABOUT THE MARCHMAN ACT! We offer a free seminar to your staff providing education on the legal aspects of the Marchman Act. The seminar is designed to provide legal information which can be used both for informational purposes and also for clinical approaches. Many believe the Marchman Act is a “simple” process and can be handled without an attorney. Families and providers who accept this misguided belief ultimately find their efforts result in failure. Further, a failed Marchman Act initiated by a provider can result in the exposure to significant liability. Simply providing “assistance” to a family in the execution of a Marchman Act Petition can result in the unlicensed practice of law (a felony in Florida) and exposure to significant liability issues.
A simple referral to our law firm can not only solve the families’ problem but free your staff from lengthy discussions regarding a legal subject better suited for an experienced attorney. We take this burden off the shoulders of your staff. Your staff will save time and be protected from liability. We will make every effort to achieve our client’s goal of having their loved one obtain treatment from you. If the family member indicates to us they were referred from your facility we will provide them a FREE in-depth consultation.
