Caring and Competent Counsel Saved Our Firm
Clarity, conviction and consideration were all delivered to Deep Green Extracts at just the right time and in the person of Anne van Leynseele. As legacy medical cannabis producers in WA, we were challenged by the transition from our historic to a regulated producer status. Ms van Leynseele helped us to lay past issues to rest and position our firm for the future while honoring our commitment to herbal healing. Her commitment to our mission was on point as she steered us through multiple negotiations and opportunities. Deep Green Extracts would not exist today without her and her team's timely and sage advice and services. Catharine "Grandma Cat" Founder, Deep Green Extracts USA

The Best I-502 business Attorney in Washington
I have been working with Anne Van Leynseele for over a year on pending I 502 Tier 2 producer and processor licenses. Throughout this time period there have been many ups and downs, one thing that has remained constant is Anne's professionalism, diligence, and hard work. In a highly regulated and at times very frustrating industry, Anne has been a steadying force. She has always been available any time of day or night to answer questions or concerns. We have had many conversations on a Saturday or Sunday well passed standard office hours. I have worked with many Attorneys and Anne Van Leynseele is by far the absolute best I have ever had the pleasure to work with.

Strategic Counsel - not just any lawyer!
Navigating legal weed successfully takes deeps understanding, the ability to pivot on a dime and respectful relationships. Anne brings those to the table along with legal and practical strategic advice. Including Anne on our team helps me sleep at night with the confidence we are taking the correct steps in our business.
