About Us

Big Law Services. Boutique Attention.

We are successful because we do great work and we care about our clients.

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.

OUR HISTORY

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.

In a seminal case, after months of legal wrangling, we helped Ryan English, a 29-year-old brain tumor survivor who had been charged with three felonies including possession for sale, regain his 81 plants and two pounds of processed pot from the Sheriff's Office in Santa Rosa.

PRO BONO & COMMUNITY WORK

DOING OUR PART FOR A BETTER TOMORROW.

At Rogoway Law, all our attorneys meet our commitment to public and community service by participating in a robust pro bono program.

We are devoted to serving the common good through working with trade associations and local governments to implement sensible cannabis policies, providing meaningful educational opportunities, improving flawed social equity programs, advocacy for drug policy reform, and ensuring safe access to medicine. These efforts go back to the firm’s founding and are integral to our fabric.

Recent Cannabis and hemp Law Perspectives

Rogoway Law Group is a professional corporation; as such, it does not have partners, it has members who are the equivalent of shareholders. Because of the prevalence in the industry to refer to members and senior attorneys as partners, we use that term and have referred to them as such throughout this website.
