Candace Moon '07 appears on the cover the June 2018 edition of the ABA Journal, the magazine published by the American Bar Association. She is featured in an article about niche law practices. After graduating from TJSL, Candace parlayed her expertise as a bar tender into a unique law practice advising the craft beer industry. Labeling herself the Craft Beer Attorney, she established her own firm and developed a package of legal services to enable new brewery’s to navigate the thicket of regulation surrounding the industry as well as the complexity of obtaining trademarks. Her firm became so successful that she found herself spending more time on administration than practicing law. Recently, she accepted a partnership in the law firm of Dinsmore & Shohl. The move gives her the freedom to focus on expanding the practice to craft breweries in other states while working in the firm’s offices in both San Diego and Denver, CO.
