Narek Studied Political Science focusing on International Relations and Pre Law courses at Cal State LA. He received his JD from Southwestern Law School. On December 19, 2017, he became a licensed attorney. That same year, Governor Brown signed the Medicinal and Adult-Use of Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA), which fundamentally changed the cannabis business in California. With the industry in a state of flux, Narek began advising clients on how to navigate their businesses through the ever-changing legal environment. His personal experience as a businessman and entrepreneur combined with his formal education gives him the unique ability to advise business owners.
Narek is most proud and thankful of the book of clients he provides legal services to. As counsel, his focus is on improving the service he provides to existing clients as opposed to growing them in number. This commitment, along with his ability to bring a business state of mind to the law table, has earned Narek the reputation of serving not only as wise counsel but also as a fierce advocate for his clients.
