Allison Margolin, “L.A.’s Dopest Attorney,” is joining forces with her famed dad Bruce Margolin to form a powerhouse law firm.

​When Allison Margolin went into the practice of law, she followed in the footsteps of her distinguished father, attorney Bruce M. Margolin. Bruce is currently the director of the Los Angeles chapter of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), a post he has held for more than 30 years.

It took ambitious Allison just under a decade to establish herself as an equally sophisticated criminal defense lawyer in her own right, gaining fame as “L.A.’s Dopest Attorney.”
Now father and daughter are merging to form a new law firm which will unite two of the country’s most prominent marijuana law experts.

In his career, spanning four decades, Bruce has successfully represented thousands of clients, including Dr. Timothy Leary, well known attorney Tony Serra, Marlon Brando’s son Christian Brando, and porn star Linda Lovelace.
He has also been involved in the “Lawyer in the Classroom” Program on behalf of the Constitutional Rights Foundation.
A Columbia College graduate and Harvard Law School alumnus, Allison’s greatest professional achievements have come in the courtroom as a successful trial lawyer. She is as known for her toughness in the courtroom as she is for being easy on the eyes (Allison isn’t averse to appearing in ads rocking tank tops and fishnets.)
Profiled in front-page stories for the Los Angeles Times and Daily Journal in 2006 and recently appearing on the cover of the April issue of California Lawyer magazine, Allison has been quoted in newspapers throughout the U.S.

​A former editor of the Columbia Daily Spectator and currently a frequent contributor to print and online publications, Allison has been active in using new media to highlight the pitfalls of the criminal justice system and advocate for a better, more just future.
Ms. Margolin has also served as an adjunct professor at West Los Angeles Law School, teaching “The History of the War On Drugs.”
The new firm, the Law Office of Bruce M. Margolin and Allison B. Margolin, will continue to focus on all areas of criminal law including, of course, marijuana law.
