Attorney Profile

JOSEPH A. ROGOWAY - As Founder & Principal of Rogoway Law Group, Joe Rogoway maintains a diverse cannabis law practice. Widely recognized as a thought-leader in the cannabis industry, Joe has dedicated his academic and professional career to cannabis law reform and regulation.

In 2001, as a legal studies major at UC Santa Cruz, Joe traveled to the Netherands where he attended the School of Law at the University of Leiden and studied the world’s only contemporary example of cannabis regulation and legitimized commerce.

Three years later, as a law student at the University of San Francisco, Joe clerked at Americans for Safe Access; the nation's largest medical cannabis advocacy nonprofit. There, Joe assisted patients and caregivers navigate the implementation of SB 420 and the implementation of the associated collective model. 

In his continued pursuit of cannabis law reform, Joe found himself on the front lines of prohibition as a trial attorney at the Mendocino and Sonoma County Public Defender’s offices. His work defendning Northern California's cultivators, manufacturers, and distributors gave Joe invaluable insight into the world of cannabis production and its impact on communities north of the Golden Gate Bridge. After gaining a deep understanding of California's unregulated cannabis industry, Joe co-wrote and participated several State legalization ballot initiatives from 2009 through 2016. 

Joe's work in the trenches of law and policy fortified his expertise in cannabis law and allowed Joe to carve out a practice area in this field. In 2011, Joe formed Rogoway Law Group as a firm dedicated to serving the cannabis industry.

Since then, Rogoway Law Group has grown to become an institution in the cannabis industry. Our internationally renowned legal team is known for their unsurpassed understanding of cannabis law and policy.
