NONPROFIT AND SOCIAL IMPACT FOR-PROFIT
Good Counsel Services works with countless nonprofit and social impact for-profit groups who work tirelessly to enrich their community for a better tomorrow. Many of these groups have the ambition and talent to succeed but lack proper support in terms of legal work, funding, and other such resources. That's where we come in.
Because we are a nonprofit that relies on funding from both individual and institutional donors, we are able to provide these change-makers with affordable legal services and counseling.
We work closely with these groups to make legal work less of a hassle while they set out to fix bigger issues in local communities, around the country, or even around the world. Some of the legal proceedings we have assisted clients with include licensing, franchising, writing, and reviewing contracts, patents, and trademarks, as well as applying for and filing tax forms. Good Counsel Services goes beyond just legal services, however. Our staff also provides support for financial operations (in particular, funding), marketing, and resource development. We take a holistic approach to the growth and success of your company, which includes first building the proper legal structure for your organization.
One organization we have worked with is #FutureMeetsPresent, a startup company that designs sustainable products, systems, and events. One of their most popular products is the Braceletote, a reusable bag
that can be folded up into a wearable bracelet. Read the #FutureMeetsPresent
team's testimonial below:
"Good Counsel acted as a trusted legal advisor and assisted #FutureMeetsPresent with its incorporation as a legal entity. The team guided #FutureMeetsPresent through the process of filing the necessary forms and documents with the state to form their LLC. #FutureMeetsPresent has been so satisfied with their experience with Good Counsel, in the future, they anticipate further utilizing the team at Good Counsel to guide them through the process of further institutionalizing their operations by drafting a formal operating agreement for the organization."
"I felt compelled to let you know how much I have enjoyed working with you. You have been so present and gracious, and have brought remarkable insight and clarity into what seemed like a daunting process. I feel seen, heard, held, and respected as your client, very safe in the container of your knowledge and expertise. Thank you for making this process painless and bringing your energy and well wishes along with your guidance. Thank you for streamlining what could have taken too long. I am grateful for the remarkable outcome we had and look forward to working together in the future."
Good Counsel has also worked with Project Liberation, founded by Ivy Woolf Turk. Project Liberation provides a paradigm-shifting personal development platform for women across all stages of criminal justice involvement, while simultaneously using national advocacy and engagement to raise awareness and political will around the issues and needs that specifically affect demographically and culturally diverse women. Read Project Liberation's founder Ivy Turk's testimonial here. She cites Good Counsel's energy toward helping her organization and was very pleased with the level of care shown by our staff.
Help provide changemakers with access to the education and legal services that they need to achieve security and success.
