Services

Jonathan is committed to providing professional legal counsel. He will personally attend to any legal matter for which he is retained and will clearly state the bases upon which he is retained, including the scope of engagement and the amount of his legal fee.

He is licensed to practice law in the State of Maryland and in the District of Columbia. However, for federal tax matters, his firm can represent individual and institutional clients anywhere in the United States and can work cooperatively with local professionals in structuring charitable gift plans or creating charitable entities across the country.

This firm's practice is centered in several interrelated areas:
assisting nonprofit organizations with the legal aspects of
   their creation, qualification, governance and operation,
enhancing the fundraising efforts of charitable organizations,
   and assisting charities in accepting gifts of sophisticated
   assets or through sophisticated gift planning vehicles,
structuring and implementing charitable gift plans on behalf
   of donors and their families,
assisting families in structuring their estate plans for federal
   and state tax and non-tax purposes, including the creation
   of Wills, trusts, economic powers of attorney and
   heath care directives, and
assisting families in dealing with the estate administration
   process when a family member has passed.

Jonathan launched www.GetGoodGovernance.com, which is dedicated to helping charities and other nonprofits help themselves. GetGoodGovernance offers an efficient governance policy production and implementation process at a reasonable price, and currently has 4 Policy Packages which are easily customizable, through a secure online portal, to meet the individual needs of small, mid-sized and large nonprofits. Jonathan also launched www.MDCharityLaw.com specifically for Maryland nonprofits and www.DCCharityLaw.com for District of Columbia nonprofits.
