After becoming a cannabis lawyer, you need to ensure you are an ethical one. Cannabis law practice requires greater attention to the rules of professional responsibility because of rapidly changing laws, enhanced potential for conflicts of interest, and that cannabis remains a Schedule I Controlled Substance in the United States.

Her clients are both domestic and international, and of all sizes from startup to conglomerate.

 

Ms. Stitt graduated with Honors from the University of California Davis, earning degrees in both Religious Studies and Film Studies. She went on to earn her J.D. from the University of California College of the Law, San Francisco (formerly Hastings), receiving a certificate of concentration in the area of intellectual property law. She has been named a Super Lawyer/Northern California Rising Star by her colleagues in the legal profession continuously since 2019 (a distinction granted to less than 2.5% of lawyers).

 

A core value of both Ms. Stitt’s is providing services to folks impacted by the drug war and “left behind” by current medical and recreational markets opening up across the country.

While with PAN, Ms. Stitt assisted California prisoners to navigate the intricacies of the civil administrative legal system in order to meet their basic needs and human rights.

She brings her pro bono experiences holding the government to account into her day-to-day practice for private clients.

 

Ms. Stitt was an active member of the Ethics Committee for the International Cannabis Bar Association (INCBA) between January 2018 and December 2022. She contributed significantly to the Ethics Committee’s proposed model rules of professional conduct for attorneys serving clients in regulated cannabis markets, and pushed the committee to develop a model evidentiary rule to protect attorney work product. Her advice and counsel has shaped the market.
