ABOUT THE CHURCH LAW GROUP
The Church Law Group is a boutique law firm concentrating on the representation of nonprofit, tax-exempt organizations, including public charities, churches and religious organizations, private foundations, private schools, colleges and universities, charitable trusts, and supporting organizations. The Church Law Group focuses on the specific legal needs of faith-based organizations, churches, ministries, and clergy throughout the United States.
Our firm is composed of a team of committed individuals dedicated to building lasting relationships with our clients and serving them with excellence and integrity.
In addition to providing ongoing counsel to our clients on how to address day-to-day nonprofit corporate and tax issues, we excel in assisting our clients in resolving IRS controversies throughout the country. We also conduct in-depth legal and tax compliance reviews or internal investigations to assist our clients in proactively identifying – and self-correcting – tax and other legal issues before an IRS inquiry or audit is initiated, and before the United States Attorney, State Attorney General, or Congressional inquiry is initiated.
The work of the Church Law Group includes both the creation of new nonprofit organizations and consulting with existing ones. We advise our clients on legal questions relating to general corporate and business matters, as well as a broad range of other issues that often have unique application in the religious nonprofit and church environment. The firm conducts legal compliance reviews, designs and implements children’s safety procedures and employment practices and termination procedures, the correct application of copyright and trademark conventions and various other applications of federal and state laws. Our work also involves navigating complex business transactions, including the acquisition, financing and disposition of real property, any construction related matters as well as the merger and dissolution of churches and nonprofit organizations.
Our attorneys have considerable experience in litigating a diverse array of matters in both federal and state courts involving tax proceedings, construction disputes, commercial transactions, employment disputes, contractual disputes, church splits, insurance related matters and many other general civil litigation matters related to churches and religious nonprofits.
Matt Anthony and his team are located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, minutes from the DFW airport, which allows us to maintain a national presence, while keeping our high-end legal services affordable to our nonprofit and tax-exempt client base. Our attorneys are admitted to the state bars and licensed to practice in the states of Texas, New York, Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana and the District of Columbia, as well as having been specially admitted in numerous cases filed in the courts of many other states.
