Aleece is our newest marijuana attorney that assists our clients with a wide range of litigation, real estate, and corporate matters. She advises clients on Oregon’s existing and proposed state and local marijuana regulations. Her experience includes performing due diligence review, drafting memoranda, and drafting transactional and governance documents.
Recently, Aleece has also focused her time on expunging clients’ marijuana misdemeanor and felony convictions. In Oregon, having a criminal record can prevent potential newcomers from entering the industry. Aleece recognizes that past convictions affect not only potential job opportunities but makes it more challenging to find housing, obtain student loans and volunteer.
Aleece received her Juris Doctorate from University at Buffalo Law School in 2015, and her undergraduate degree from St. Bonaventure University in 2012. While in law school, Aleece was an active member in the law school’s Advocacy Institute, and was selected to represent the school in four national trial team competitions. Aleece was recognized for her trial advocacy skills with the Robert J. Connelly Trial Technique Award.
Aleece is licensed to practice law in Oregon and New York. Further, she is an active member of Women Grow and Oregon Women Lawyers.
