Church and Non-Profit Law

Blackwelder Law represents churches, non-profit agencies, and individuals employed by these agencies in legal matters throughout South Carolina.  Attorney Blackwlder aims to be proactive in her representation of these entities with hope to avoid unnecessary court battles; however, she represents clients in South Carolina state courts if circumstances should call for such an appearance.

Every non-profit agency is unique and deserves to have an attorney on their team that gets to know the motivation and hope for their unique mission.  After an initial consultation, Blackwelder Law looks forward to creating a strategy of regular legal reviews to ensure that you and your good work are not compromised.  We encourage you to consider the following issues when scheduling your initial consultation:

  • Incorporation
  • Governance Documents
  • Membership and Leadership Plans
  • Doctrinal Compliance
  • Qualifying Non-Profit Activities
  • Third-Party Facility Use
  • Child and Youth Protection
  • Volunteer and Employee Training
  • International Missions
  • Fundraising Models
  • Church Health Insurance
  • Employment Issues
  • Violence Prevention
  • State and Federal Reporting/Compliance
  • Copyright Issues
  • First Amendment Protections

Prospective Clients

Blackwelder Law represents clients from around the country and practices in court rooms throughout the state of South Carolina. Because we understand that every prospective client may not be able to travel to South Carolina, Blackwelder Law encourages prospective clients to contact us about a free initial consultation today.
