Big Law Services. Boutique Attention.
OUR MISSION & VISION
Pursuing good through expert lawyering.
Through the skilled representation of each client, we aspire to create a legal landscape in which the cannabis and hemp industries are normalized in a just and sustainable manner.
WE'VE BEEN THERE , HELPING PAVE THE WAY.
Rogoway Law was founded in 2011, five years before the passage of The Adult Use of Marijuana Act (Proposition 64) in California. We started as advocates for patients and caregivers, helping cannabis collectives and cooperatives successfully fight unjust enforcement charges in a perilous legal landscape. Meanwhile, we also fought for regulatory reform and state-wide legalization.
Now, Rogoway Law represents some of the most significant companies in the cannabis and hemp industries, while continuing our pro bono advocacy efforts for local reform reform in California and nationwide legalization.
