Nonprofit Corporation Law
Nonprofit organizations are organized and operated in a significantly different manner than for-profit businesses, and subject to a complex set of tax, regulatory and reporting obligations. With more than 25 years of experience on my side, I am here to help you and your nonprofit organization navigate through all of the legal matters you may face so that you can focus on what you do best: serving your community.
Representing All Types Of Nonprofit Organizations
I am available to represent nonprofit organizations of all types in Monterey, Santa Cruz, Hollister, San Jose, Silicon Valley and the surrounding parts of California. My experience includes providing legal representation to nonprofit clinics and hospitals, private schools, religious organizations, boys and girls clubs, cultural organizations, business associations, social service groups as well as many other private foundations and donors seeking to establish donor-advised funds with their local community foundation. I have an excellent working relationship with local community foundations and see them as partners with my clients in serving our communities.
