Before getting into the medical cannabis business, Stuart was a practicing lawyer in Chicago. A graduate of Northwestern University in 1983, Stuart received his J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1986. Stuart was admitted to the Illinois State Bar in 1986, and is a member of the Bar of the United States Supreme Court.
Stuart started his legal career as a litigation associate at Jenner & Block, one of the premier law firms in Chicago. Stuart eventually became a partner at Kamensky Rubinstein Hochman & Delott, a boutique healthcare law firm in Chicago, where for over 20 years he represented a wide variety of healthcare professionals in a broad array of civil litigation and related matters.
In addition to working with PDI, Stuart now runs his own law firm and serves as in-house counsel for a medical practice and diagnostic imaging center located in North Suburban Chicago. With whatever free time he has left, Stuart likes to golf, go to movies, and talk about the future of the medical cannabis industry.
