We Are Cannabis Attorneys at Gleam Law! Ask Us Anything!
We are cannabis lawyers at Gleam Law! We have offices in the California, Washington, and Oregon markets and serve clients around the world. We practice business law, administrative law, intellectual property, and litigation with a focus on cannabis.
We help businesses form, comply, and thrive in the new cannabis industry. Our clients include farms, processors, retailers, dispensaries, and ancillary businesses such as publicly traded companies and international celebrities.
In the emerging cannabis system, regulatory bodies are struggling to grasp the complex subject matter. We help the government offices interpret the laws in regards to the practical application and use of medical and recreational marijuana.
These are always fun and this is our fifth AMA!
Joining us this time will be:
I am the founder and managing partner of Gleam Law. I am a registered patent attorney and I think the world of myself. I am also famous for my modesty.
I am a partner in our Seattle office. I lead the litigation department; advise businesses on Cannabis, hemp, and CBD regulations; and make a great cocktail. I am also the Cannabis Law professor at Seattle University and moonlight as a judge pro tem. In my off time, I tell jokes and write. You can also find me on the twitters at @amateurlawprof.
I am a partner at Gleam Law, leading the firm's Oregon practice and advising clients on a wide range of issues, including compliance, licensing, and transactions. As part of an industry advocacy organization I run, I work closely with the legislature, the OLCC, and other offices and agencies in Oregon to effect changes to law and rule to benefit Oregon cannabis companies. When I am not at the office, I can be found wrangling her three small children or doing something dangerous in Oregon's great outdoors.
I am a JD/MBA business and trademark attorney at the Seattle branch of Gleam Law. I founded the Cannabis Law Society (CLAW) at Seattle University School of Law in 2014 and served as Secretary to the Washington State Bar Association's Cannabis Bar Section from 2018-2020. I am a board member of The Cannabis Alliance and active with the National Cannabis Industry Association.
I am an attorney in the Portland office specializing in cannabis business litigation. I have experience in a wide variety of disciplines, including real estate transactions and litigation, general civil litigation, appellate matters, contract disputes, mortgage servicing litigation and foreclosure defense. In his spare time, I enjoy training for and participating in road and trail running races, hiking, biking and watching live music.
I am a California-based cannabis attorney focusing on the business side of cannabis law. I commonly speak at industry events and help keep the legal community appraised on the latest issues in cannabis.
I am an attorney at Gleam Law’s Oregon office focusing on the business and regulatory legal needs of our cannabis clients. When I’m not doing lawyer-y things (excuse the technical term) I enjoy hiking, re-watching old episodes of the X-Files and 30 Rock, and battling my two cats for preeminence in my apartment.
I'm originally an attorney from Canada, but now work at Gleam Law's Oregon office focusing on Mergers & Acquisitions, Commercial Transactions, Corporate Governance, Debt/Equity Financing, Capital Restructurings, Procurement, Policy Development, Risk Management, Franchising & Licensing, and Joint Ventures/Partnerships. I enjoy yoga, weightlifting, dancing, and spending time with my husband and our two dogs.

I am a Reno, Nevada based attorney focusing on a broad range of legal issues, including intellectual property, privacy, employment, corporate, transactional, regulatory, and tax matters. In my spare time, I enjoy travel, art, cooking, live music, and Pilates.
I am one of the first Gleam Law attorneys and I specialize in regulatory compliance and government relations for cannabis businesses. I am also on my seventh term serving in the Washington State Legislature, presiding as Chair of the House Public Safety Committee with oversight of the criminal justice system. As a drug policy reformer for more than a decade, I was a key player in laying the groundwork for cannabis legalization in Washington State.
I am our newest intern, currently attending Seattle University School of Law. Before law school, I was a high school teacher.
