A California lawyer for 20 years, both at major law firms and in-house at large financial institutions, I now serve, as the principal in my own firm, exclusively cannabis operators throughout the legal California cannabis supply chain in business and corporate transactional matters. A lifetime member of INCBA, in 2019, as Chair of the INCBA Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Committee, I helped organize the Cannabis Law Institute held at New York Law School in Manhattan, New York City. Also in 2019, I founded INCBA’s Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee. From July 2020, I have worked alongside the INCBA President, Secretary, and Treasurer on the Executive Committee as a Board of Directors Vice President. I have been recognized as a Northern California Super Lawyer in Cannabis Law and in Business & Corporate Law by Super Lawyers® Magazine. I serve as a member of the National Cannabis Industry Association’s Risk Management & Insurance Committee, as well as a member of the Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Equity Committee of the California Cannabis Industry Association. I am the Co-Founder and Immediate Past Chair of the Bar Association of San Francisco’s Cannabis Law Section, through which I have organized a volunteer lawyer panel to provide pro bono legal services to social equity individuals under San Francisco’s Cannabis Equity Program. Representing clients in Oakland and the East Bay, I am a Co-Founder and current Vice-Chair of the Alameda County Bar Association’s Cannabis & Hemp Law Section.
