Nonprofit Law

Brooke is the “go to” firm for arts, culture, and social justice organizations dealing with nonprofit and tax-exemption issues. She helps nonprofits through all phases of their life cycles, from fiscal sponsorship, formation and securing tax-exempt status through operation, governance, growth, and even dissolution. After spurious allegations were published in the Los Angeles Times, she defended seven nonprofits in the California farm worker movement against an Attorney General’s investigation triggered by the bad press. Her defense resulted in findings of absolutely no wrongdoing.
