When Your Church

Needs A Lawyer

Get Started

Yes, we’re a “church lawyer,” but we’re more than that, too.

Churches, synagogues, mosques, and other places of worship are valuable parts of their community. Getting a lawyer is typically something churches might think of during a crisis, but having a church lawyer can be valuable in peaceful seasons too. We’re here to help when your church is growing and you need to open a new location or your children’s ministry is bringing on volunteers and you need to update your volunteer policies.
