A Client must understand that they are hiring ARLS to perform legal services pursuant to the Florida Marchman Act statute. This is a multi-step legal process that will be litigated within the Court system. If a Client decides to stop or stall any of the proceedings, this can result in the petition(s) being denied and/or dismissed. Accordingly, it is essential that the Client follow the advice of the attorneys as to the legal process and allow them to proceed without interference based on their vast experience with the workings of this law. ARLS understands that it is difficult for any family to watch a loved one suffer from substance abuse and addiction, which is a serious, chronic medical condition. Accordingly, although the client may want immediate results, the Marchman Act is a process that is dictated by external factors outside the control of ARLS (e.g., the Clerk of the Courts schedule, judicial schedule, availability of hearing dates and law enforcement involvement). ARLS will act in order to reasonably expedite the Marchman Act process for the Client. The Client acknowledges that utilization of the Marchman Act through litigation is an ongoing process and not an instant fix.
