About Matthew Shapiro

Attorney Biography

Matthew Shapiro is a California attorney specializing in Cannabis law. Given the dynamic nature of his practice, Mr. Shapiro is experienced in many areas of the law including licensing, criminal defense, corporate law, contracts, land use, and regulatory compliance.

Having graduated from the University of San Diego with both an MBA and a law degree, Matthew is uniquely capable in serving the needs of his corporate clients in various parts of the logistical supply chain, including retail, manufacturing, and agricultural businesses.

Mr. Shapiro is a firm believer in the rights of American citizens and ensuring the government does not overreach the power lawfully granted to it by the People. Throughout his legal career, Matthew has fought for the rights of his clients by procuring the dismissal of numerous unjust felony prosecutions, the return of unlawfully seized medical cannabis, and helping compliant businesses maintain operation in the face of legal threats from state and municipal governments.
