“My goal is to provide quality legal services at an affordable price so everyday people can achieve their cannabis dreams. I am the anti-lawyer lawyer. Too many common practices of lawyers just don’t seem fair. I don’t want to be like that. In my office, we like to be upfront about what our clients are getting and never try to sell you something you don’t need. In that vein, we offer a unique retainer service that doesn’t leave you wondering, “WTF did I just pay for?” We also want our clients to understand exactly what they are getting in to. We will tell you the good, the bad, and the ugly. Some lawyers tell you what you want to hear, we tell you what you need to know so you can make the best decisions for you, your family, and your business.”

We Do Things Differently

We’re a Small Business Too: We know what it’s like to get started with almost nothing and have to rely on hard work, friends, and family to make your dreams come true. Spending money on things like fancy law books (umm, internet) and mahogany furniture is not our style. We keep our overhead low so we can pass that savings on to you. We accept credit cards and offer flexible billing options including payment plans and bundle discounts.

We Keep It Simple: Our home base is in Oakland at The Port Workspace, one of those hipster co-working offices filled with entrepreneurial do-gooders (yes, there is a slide). The Port is located in Jack London Square with easy parking and Bart access. We also have a location in Sacramento or, if more convenient, we can come to you at your local place of business.

We Don’t Nickel and Dime: Our fees are fair and straightforward. Unlike most law firms, we do not round up our hourly billing to 10 minute increments. You only pay for the actual time we work on your services. Sometimes it takes more than one attorney to complete your legal services. If that’s the case, we never double bill when two or more attorneys work on your services at the same time. We also provide discounts when appropriate ($25 for a check-in email, umm… no).
