Kimberly Simms has been a huge resource in helping setup our corporate structure and dealing with the ins-and-outs of running a cannabis business. Her industry knowledge and presence within the local cannabis community helped us enter the market with confidence and peace of mind. Kim helped eliminate the confusion of creating and operating a non-profit entity and allowed our business to run smoothly. I would recommend Kim’s services to anyone looking to operate a business within the cannabis space.

When I first got into this business 5 years ago, I interviewed a few attorneys in San Diego who specialize in the Medical Marijuana field, and chose Kim to represent a guide me through the complicated process of becoming a properly formed non-profit entity. Make no mistake, this is a tricky field to navigate, and it is essential that you have a good attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable in the highly specialized MMJ industry. We have continued to use Kim over the past 5 years, and she has been a great asset for our companies. Kim is also the most connected attorney in San Diego as a highly involved figure in the local Medical Marijuana movement. Her involvement in the local industry gives her great insight and knowledge on the development of the MMJ politics in the County and various Cities of the San Diego area.
