Religious organizations are exceptional in both their missions and the laws that govern them.

The missions and goals of religious institutions, faith-based charities, and religious schools are vastly different from those of traditional companies and even non-religious non-profits. And, the government treats religious organizations in a different manner than their secular counterparts through statutory exemptions, the First Amendment, state constitutional provisions, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, privilege statutes, and similar laws.

Our team thoroughly understands church-state law and we are sensitive to the distinctive challenges religious institutions face. We help faith-based clients successfully navigate the myriad of legal issues unique to religious organizations so they can both achieve organizational goals and fulfill their religious mission. We proactively counsel and advocate on behalf of a broad scope of faith-based organizations in administrative settings and in state and federal trial and appellate courts throughout the country.
