Communities Rise – Small Business & Nonprofit Legal Clinics
Communities Rise offers monthly legal clinics for Washington state based, low-income small business owners and nonprofit organizations who would not otherwise have access to legal services. Qualifying clients are paired with an attorney for a free 1-hour limited engagement legal consultation to discuss business-transactional matters (e.g. start-up questions, intellectual property, nonprofit governance, choice of legal entity, etc.). The intention is to provide a forum for nonprofits and small businesses to have a place to ask questions that can be answered within a 60-minute consultation without creating an ongoing attorney-client relationship.
