About Us


In a nutshell, we provide risk management solutions for churches and nonprofit organizations.  The goal of these solutions is to help organizations achieve and protect their mission. As a result, Nonprofit Law Group represents nonprofit organizations, churches, parachurches, denominations, foundations, schools, and universities in forming risk management strategies and solutions.

Stephen P. Sommers is the firm’s founder and has been a practicing attorney for over 35 years, concentrating his practice on nonprofit organizations. 

Our Personal Touch

We provide personal, one-on-one counseling.  We want you to think of us as YOUR attorney so that you can call us when you have a question or issue.  We want you to be 100% satisfied with our services and for every experience you have with us to be high quality and professional.  We can be your in-house counsel without having to be “in-house.”

We provide a wide range of services to our clients, including but not limited helping clients with entity formation, filing for tax-exempt status, corporate governance and operations, employment law counseling, contract drafting and negotiation, avoiding potential liability, and providing general counsel.  The clients we serve are large and small, as well as local and international. We are not a public interest firm, nor are we a nonprofit organization. Nonprofit Law Group’s attorneys are licensed to practice law in California.
