Our team is comprised of highly experienced lawyers, accountants, and financial compliance specialists, who each have extensive experience with starting non-profits. The non-profit industry is highly regulated so any misstep can cost an organization it's tax-exempt status and it's ability to solicit donations, and can create further problems for the non-profit's Board and officers. Experience matters when it comes to highly regulated industries.
