GROW your nonprofit

MANAGE your nonprofit
Employees? You didn't build this to become just any employer. We can help you be a better employer. And, as you grow, you can outsource your HR to our affiliated Administrative Service Organization.
Volunteers? They're not quite employees and not quite interns. Let us help you frame your relationship with your allies.

WHY We Do It
You have a vision for how you are going to make the world a better place. You founded, funded, built, or grew your nonprofit or benefit corporation because you have a passion for making your community better. We have a passion for helping you do it. As a law firm dedicated exclusively to advising nonprofit and benefit corporations, our vision is a world where you can put your focus where it belongs: on accomplishing your mission.

HOW We Do It
We combine innovative law firm business practices and innovative billing practices.
A different kind of law firm.
We're virtual. We're paperless. We're lean. We're agile. We're net zero carbon. Learn more about our innovative practice model and how it aligns with helping you accomplish your mission.
A different kind of bill.
You don't get donations by the tenth of the hour, so we don't bill by the tenth of the hour. Although nobody loves the idea of calling their lawyer, you shouldn't be reluctant to pick up the phone and call just because you don't want "the timer" to start running. Learn more about our innovative billing methods.
A commitment to service.
Consistent with the firm's core value of service, the firm periodically offers pro bono days. Organizations with limited means, or people with limited means thinking about starting nonprofit organizations, can schedule a pro bono legal advice session specific to forming, growing, and managing nonprofits.
