Legal Help for Non Profits

 

Here are member suggestions for legal help for non profits:

"Lawyers Alliance in Manhattan will connect you with a firm that provides pro bono services.  The Alliance also offers informative classes.  It's a process that takes a bit of time.

"You may wanna reach out to Priori Legal. They primarily focus on startups."

"I have heard that Brooklyn Law School sometimes takes these on as pro bono projects. I don’t know much more than that, but if you are looking for low cost, can’t get much lower than free."

"Have you checked out lawyers alliance? They are a great organization that hooks up qualifying nonprofits with pro bono legal services for incorporation, tax exempt status, corporate governance, compliance with the new NY laws, employment issues, etc.  They also have fantastic free/low-cost trainings & workshops for nonprofits on a range of issues."
