Amanda Rokita’s experience spans from complex civil litigation, real estate investments, business law, cannabis law, intellectual property, and estate planning.Within her first year of practicing law, Amanda was one of the twelve attorneys chosen to participate in the Los Angeles Incubator Consortium Program, a partnership created among Southwestern Law School, UCLA School of Law, Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, local legal aid organizations and the Los Angeles County Law Library to support and assist law school graduates in starting their own solo, small firm, or non-profit practices. Incubator participants receive the infrastructure and basic training needed to get their practices up and running, and serve the local community’s legal needs at an affordable cost.During law school, Amanda made an effort to gain a well-rounded experience by working both at a civil litigation firm focused on business and personal injury law, and a transactional firm focused on business and real estate transactions. In 2014, Amanda worked on one of the first applications for a medical marijuana cultivation facility in Desert Hot Springs, CA, the first city in Southern California to legalize large-scale medical marijuana cultivation. Amanda also externed at the Los Angeles Law Library, where she drafted a step-by-step research guide on criminal record expungement, which is available at the Los Angeles Law Library.

Amanda is a current member on the executive committee for the Los Angeles County Bar Association Small Firms/Solo Practitioner Section and a founding member of Lawyers ACT (Lawyers and Communities Together), a non-profit organization that supports team-spirited solo lawyers working within communities on innovative community-lawyering projects and policymaking in the South Bay. She currently volunteers with Legal Aid Foundation Los Angeles, where she volunteers with the Lawyers in the Library program. She is a member of LA County Bar Association, Women’s Lawyers Association of Los Angeles, and the Beverly Hills Bar Association.
