Tom is also active in other important cannabis organizations on both a local and National level. Of note, he is a founding member of both the National Cannabis Bar Association (NCBA) and the Arizona Cannabis Bar Association (ACBA), organizations that seek to help other lawyers develop and understanding of the many unique aspects of cannabis business law and other emerging cannabis related areas of practice.

Outside of the courtroom, Tom enjoys presenting at legal and business seminars and conferences around the country.
