About Dominic

A lifelong California native, Dominic attended Foothill Elementary in Pittsburg, CA. When his family moved to Antioch, Dominic attended Black Diamond Middle School and graduated from Deer Valley High School.

Dominic attended Diablo Valley College before he transferred to Washington DC to attend Howard University in Washington, D.C. Dominic came back after undergrad to begin his legal career by attending Golden Gate School of Law in San Francisco.

A consumer of cannabis for many years, Dominic turned activist when he attended Drug Policy Alliance Reform Conference in Denver, CO in 2013 while President of Golden Gate University School of Law chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy. After that experience, Dominic has been expanding the dialogue of how cannabis can provide sustainable, progressive, permanent change within our current culture and society. The War on Drugs has caused much mental and physical suffering. Dominic has created a law practice where both clients and cannabis are protected and valued and the harm caused by the War on Drugs can be undone!

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 recently started Elevated Consulting. A solo law practice where Dominic is CEO. 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". Elevated Consulting 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. Elevated Consulting 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. As a participating member of BALI, Dominic Ripoli, through Elevated Consulting can provide the required navigation for cannabis equity pioneers.
