    Heather Burke

    Heather Burke is a partner with Greenspoon Marder’s Cannabis Law practice group. Due to her desire to defend cannabis patients and cultivators from a young age, in law school, Ms. Burke interned with Lance Rogers, who is also now a partner in Greenspoon Marder’s Cannabis Law practice group, assisting him in the seminal California cannabis case, People v. Jovan Jackson. Immediately after law school, Ms. Burke began her career by working closely with several renowned California medical marijuana attorneys, who mentored her in the aggressive representation of medical cannabis patients and cultivators throughout California and in federal court. Eventually opening her own practice in Nevada City, she has worked on numerous precedent setting cases, including a five-day evidentiary hearing regarding cannabis’ Schedule I status in U.S. v. Pickard in the Eastern District of California. Ms. Burke also co-drafted a proposed initiative for California cannabis legalization (2016), entitled The California Craft Cannabis Initiative.
