Nonprofit Governance & Corporate Compliance

Nonprofit organizations face many of the same challenges that other businesses face. The difference is that the laws pertaining to nonprofits often require a different approach to these challenges. I have more than 25 years of nonprofit corporate law experience that I use to benefit nonprofit organizations in Monterey, Santa Cruz, Salinas, San Jose, Silicon Valley and the surrounding areas of California.

  • Assisting clients with meeting annual reporting obligations to IRS, FTB and California Attorney General
