Our firm has a history of defending nonprofits and educational institutions in a wide range of matters including general liability, employment, civil rights, workers’ compensation and insurance. We know that in the nonprofit world a lawsuit can mean a disruption in the goals of the organizations, so we work to understand the missions of our clients to resolve cases with minimal disruption.
In addition to working with nonprofits on legal matters, we also provide risk management assessments and training in the hope of preventing litigation. We review handbooks and policies to make sure an organization is in compliance with the law.
Our clients include large national nonprofit agencies, churches, charter and public schools, nonprofit sports teams, recovery centers, health and human services organizations, animal rescue groups, educational agencies for the disabled and disadvantaged along with groups that provide shelter, financial resources and counseling to the more vulnerable in our society.
We represent a numerous religious schools of all faiths along with individual teachers, administrators and board members.
Our strength is our relationships and ties with our nonprofit clients and our ability to firmly fight litigation, find equitable settlements and provide counsel and training that often prevent situations that lead to lawsuits.
