Non-Profit Organizations

This Is The PlaceLeaders of non-profit organizations prefer to focus on fulfilling the organization’s mission and resources. Guidance from legal counsel with special expertise in federal and state laws applicable to non-profit organizations enables leaders to sustain and expand the organization with assurance that they are in compliance with tax and legal requirements.

 From forming non-profit organizations to obtaining tax-exempt status from the IRS, to complying with federal and state laws governing fund-raising and operations, the advice of experienced legal counsel is crucial.

 We have the experience, expertise, and resources to provide the counsel non-profit organizations need, when they need it.

While most of our clients are 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations, we represent many organizations that are tax-exempt under other categories of Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code, e.g., social welfare organizations exempt under 501(c)(4) and trade associations exempt under 501(c)(6).  We also represent non-profit homeowners associations.
