Dominic graduated law school in 2015 and began his career as a cannabis legal consultant. In 2017 Dominic passed the California bar and is currently practicing cannabis law.
Dominic started his solo law practice in 2017. Dominic provides modest means and lo-bono legal services. Elevated Consulting is focused on the emerging regulated California commercial cannabis industry. With a focus on "Cannabis Equity Clients". Dominic is dedicated to seeing the local programs meant to right-the-wrongs of the "War on Drugs" be fairly implemented, but more importantly, implemented sustainably.
Current "cannabis equity programs" as seen in San Francisco and Oakland are unable to meet the demands of their equity applicants. Many equity applicants lack the funds and resources needed for any highly-regulated business license, like a commercial cannabis license. Dominic hopes to meet the demands for professional and legal services needed by cannabis equity applicants by providing modest means and lo-bono fees to provide the necessary technical assistance to navigate through state and local bureaucracies. Dominic Ripoli can provide the required navigation for cannabis equity pioneers.
