Nonprofit Law

Do you have a heart to serve a specific need or population in your community? Do you want to meet that need by starting a nonprofit organization? Or have you already started one? 

Nonprofit organizations have more rules and regulations than a typical small business. Including the correct language when you file your Articles of Organization with the state is essential to ease filing for 501(c)(3) status with the IRS. Drafting Bylaws that include your organization's mission and adequately govern its operations helps set its focus. Recruiting board members to help shoulder the burden of running the nonprofit and properly documenting the board's meetings increases its chances of success. Filing the proper initial documents with the Attorney General and subsequent annual filings keep it from incurring fines and penalties.

Most nonprofit founders start a nonprofit to help people. Although there are similarities between entrepreneurs and nonprofit founders, one of the differences is that most nonprofit founders don’t want to take on the administrative and legal headaches of setting it up and the continued operation of a nonprofit. 

Our services are designed to alleviate the administrative and legal burdens of setting up and maintaining a nonprofit. By partnering with us, you can redirect your energy towards your primary goal – making a difference in people's lives. 

We help nonprofits in Illinois and Missouri form their legal nonprofit entity, register with the Attorney General, draft the initial corporate Bylaws and resolutions, and file for 501(c)(3) status. We continue to help by keeping the annual corporate records and acting as the registered agent. With technological advances, we can help draft documents and agreements for a reasonable flat fee. Before starting a matter, our clients know what to expect concerning billing to accomplish their unique objectives. Our team will get to know your situation, goals, and expectations during our first consultation. From there, we will develop a custom legal strategy for your situation. Finally, we discuss and agree to a flat fee structure for your matter without any billing surprises.

Unlike traditional law firms that charge by the hour, our flat fee structure offers a cost-effective solution tailored to your unique situation. This allows us to focus on effectively resolving your organization’s matters without the worry of escalating costs.

We also provide advice and counsel on an hourly basis for matters that don’t fit with a flat fee arrangement.

In addition to our flat fees for most services, we offer a subscription service that provides the benefits of an in-house counsel without the high cost. With three membership tiers, we can cater to your nonprofit's needs, regardless of stage. Learn more about our flexible subscription service.
