Jacoby Law has become Oregon’s preeminent cannabis litigation firm.

Kevin Jacoby is well-respected in the cannabis industry and legal community because of his reputation for effectiveness, long-standing commitment to cannabis stakeholders, and his industry leadership in times of crisis. When the Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission moved to ban botanical terpenes added to vape cartridges, Kevin Jacoby along with other cannabis lawyers, were the go-to attorneys and provided a quick, effective response, which revoked the ban, saving companies and jobs, and preserved consumer choice. More recently, when cannabis producers were reeling from a new testing rule for a ubiquitous microorganism, Aspergillus, which threatened the viability of many producers and a substantial portion of the 2023 fall outdoor harvest, the industry turned to Kevin’s expert guidance to petition the Oregon Court of Appeals and strike down the requirement.

On August 25, 2023, the Court of Appeals did just that. Kevin Jacoby is often sought out for a second opinion, or to repair the mistakes and missteps of prior counsel, particularly in matters involving sales of OLCC-licensed businesses, and administrative litigation such as license revocation proceedings. Kevin is consistently engaged in contested administrative proceedings involving OLCC licenses, including license revocation proceedings, since the OLCC first began enforcing cannabis regulations. For example, he represented the respondent in the first reported hearing involving OLCC-regulated cannabis: a proposed license denial after a failed background check (and yes, our client in that case now has a license and operates a very successful retail store). We firmly believe there is no substitute for experience, our staff also includes team members who hold marijuana workers permits, and who have worked as employees in Oregon cannabis companies. Kevin Jacoby serves in leadership roles in various local cannabis organizations and industry groups. He is currently a member of the Oregon State Bar’s Cannabis and Psychedelics Law Section and has been since its inception, as well as Special Litigation Counsel for the Cannabis Industry Alliance of Oregon.

“Kevin Jacoby has been our compass through the volatile and complicated cannabis industry. From business formation to navigating the ever-evolving cannabis regulations, Kevin’s expertise has been invaluable. If you’re seeking someone for guidance or to fight a battle, I can’t recommend Kevin enough.”

“ The bottom line is that Kevin Jacoby saved my business. When faced with a regulatory change that basically was forcing me out of business, I organized a group of affected business owners to seek solutions. Many people told us that using the courts would not be a good avenue for our endeavor. After our attempts to work things out with the governing agencies went nowhere, we interviewed several lawyers who all had different takes on our plight, but all were unsure of a good strategy. Kevin however, immediately saw a potential angle and impressed us with his professionalism and experience with administrative law. Himself and his small, efficient team built an argument that amazingly quickly got us an emergency stay and then a full win. We were literally days from having to permanently shutter our doors and the case opened them immediately. Kevin was great to work with, his patience for the questions from our entire team was incredible; his work ethic, which often involved long hours of work done to make filings that our group requested, constantly impressed me. For all these reasons and more, I highly recommend Kevin Jacoby as a general counsel and specifically for administrative law, where his knowledge and experience really shine.”

“I would like to reach out to you this morning and give thanks. We have looked back at the events that have transpired in the lives of Li Fen and myself over the last year and a half. We first came to you after law enforcement/public sector organized crime families, invaded our lives stripped us of our constitutional rights and stole all of our bank accounts and business. I will never forget the relief that came over both Li Fen and myself when you looked at our case at the initial consultation then you looked square into our eyes and said ”I believe I can get your bank accounts back for you and get you reimbursed for your attorney fees.” Again I will mention, you were looking in our eyes, not down at your shoelaces…. That told me you were confident and telling the truth! You and your team did exactly that! You paid attention to every detail and you practiced law with ecclesiastical means. You were very well organized every step of the way and gave strong and rational arguments in court, which comes only from experience and time before a judge in the courtroom.

The fallout of the events that occurred in our life effected our building projects and every aspect of are financial/business lives. Jacoby law firm stepped up and told Jefferson County community development and the city of Madras that “we the people will not be bullied.” We got our businesses back our bank accounts back our building permits and projects completed n’ running smoothly. More importantly OUR ATTORNEY FEES reimbursed for the civil claims that were against us.

We are extremely grateful as well for the other civil contracts and business deals that Jacoby Law Firm has managed for us In a very timely manner with true professionalism.

Kevin you optimize what it is to be a Civil Attorney and have set the standard by which I shall judge the qualifications of any Civil Attorney I would ever hire in our future.”
