It's clear that marijuana was the real winner in the last election. Ever since I’ve been itching to chat with a marijuana lawyer and learn about this growing industry. There are lots of innovative new firms popping up across the country, but I really wanted to chat with someone who was an early adopter. Today Lauren Davis shares her story of transitioning into marijuana law and growing a practice in a developing legal space. 


What you'll learn:

  • How Lauren decided to move from NYC to Colorado and fell into marijuana law
  • What it takes to be a marijuana lawyer and what it’s like day to day
  • Advice for lawyers considering a practice in marijuana law
  • Lauren’s prediction of the future of the legality of marijuana
  • Why you should attend conferences and strategies for making the most of your time there
  • The importance of finding a practice of law that aligns with your strengths and personality

Best Advice for Finding Happiness:

“Find an employer/ immediate supervisor who shares your values on the appropriate work-life balance. Get over the prestige of saying you work at a big firm. Most people don't care. Figure out what is most important in your life and make it happen.”
