The Church Law Group

Our clients run the gamut from newly incorporated nonprofit organizations to well-established, well-known organizations with multi-million dollar budgets and a global presence. We take care and pride in carefully tailoring the types of legal services we provide for a particular client to the needs of that client. For some clients, we act as outside general counsel or outside federal tax counsel (or both), addressing the full range of legal or tax issues that the organization is confronted with in the course of furthering its nonprofit mission.
