Church Representation

Churches can benefit from Alan’s legal representation on a range of issues — recognizing that it’s advantageous (and much less expensive) to plan and organize practices to avoid legal problems rather than address them after they arise.


Here are just a few examples of areas where churches may need legal expertise from someone who understands the intersection of church, state and nonprofit law:

  • Child and youth protection — including when to report cto authorities
  • Employee policies and procedures — including development of (or revisions to) employee handbooks and termination of lay employees who may be protected by law
  • Compliance with applicable rules, regulations and tax laws that cover fund-raising activities
  • Review of contracts with outside parties
  • Risk mitigation
  • Review of governing documents
  • Disputes over membership and leadership
  • Use of church facilities by third parties
