Erik Halverson

Professional Experience

Erik is a serial entrepreneur. He is heavily involved on the front lines of the cannabis industry, having been introduced to the industry during the legalization phase in Colorado and following this up with providing business counsel to the top retailers and producer/processors in Washington State. Clients value Erik for his sense of strategy, diplomacy and willingness to jump into the trenches with them to improve their businesses. 

Erik is currently working on forming a non-profit to benefit cancer victims and survivors through creating new legislation in Washington state. This is consistent with a long track record of pro-bono public legal service, gaining him recognition in both Colorado and Washington states, including the 2014 Pro Bono Attorney of the year award for the Colorado legal aid project. 

Successful representation has included the settlement of over a million dollars worth of injury cases through trial work and settlement, and dozens of bench trials. Erik’s favorite activity is drafting creative contracts to serve client needs. Clients enjoy having Erik in their corner protecting their interests.
