Thinking about starting a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit corporation? At Salmon Legal Florida’s charitable community constantly inspires us, and our attorneys are dedicated to helping new and developing nonprofit organizations thrive.
Whether you are considering starting a Florida nonprofit or have already begun the process of creating your entity and applying for federal tax-exempt status, the attorneys at Salmon Legal are here to help you get it done right the first time.
Did you should know that the Florida’s non-profit filing requirements and forms actually fall below IRS standards making it more likely that your application for 501(c)(3) non-profit status will be denied by the IRS?
At Salmon Legal we can help you navigate the formation and Form 1023 application process to ensure your non-profit submits the strongest application possible.
Some of the things the attorneys at Salmon Legal can help you with:
• Non-profit structuring and planning
• Drafting governing documents
• 501(c)(3) and IRS Form 1023 and Form 1023EZ filing
• Corporate Bylaws
• Amending existing documents for IRS compliance
• Employment agreements and manuals
• Independent Contractor agreements
• Non-compete and non-solicitation agreements
• Non-profit fundraising registration
• Director agreements
Even the most simply structured nonprofit must satisfy complex legal and federal requirements. You want to contribute to the public interest, and we want to help you get there as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Unlike court, mediation is analogous to an informal, confidential business meeting where parties have the opportunity to speak candidly and work toward a common goal – problem solving/dispute resolution. The process empowers the individuals to retain control of the critical decisions that affect their personal, financial, and business interests.
The mediators at Salmon Legal are certified to mediate all types of disputes including commercial or business, family and divorce, personal injury claims, employment and discrimination, insurance matters, and citizen or neighbor disputes. Before filing a lawsuit, consider alternative dispute resolution mediated by Salmon Legal.
