About J Robert Latham

Attorney Biography

Rob Latham wants you to be free … free from unjust prosecutions and adjudications. He provides his clients with a broad range of expertise and working knowledge of the legal system. He is a fourth-generation Utah native and has spent more than a decade championing our ability to pursue happiness and enjoy the blessings of liberty.

Mr. Latham gathered petition signatures, advocated, and campaigned for the passage of Utah's medical cannabis initiative, Proposition 2.

Yet, despite recent improvements in Utah law for medical cannabis patients, traps for the unwary remain.

Drivers found with a measurable metabolite of cannabis in their body may be prosecuted for DUI pursuant to section 41-6a-517 of the Utah Code.

A mother or her newborn child found with a measurable metabolite of cannabis in their body may be supported for abuse or neglect by a child protective services agency, and a child welfare matter petitioned in juvenile court by the attorney general's office.

Mr. Latham devotes a significant portion of his practice advocating on behalf of individuals facing prosecution or threats to their parental rights in circumstances involving the possession or use of cannabis.
