Sandra Pfau Englund founded Pfau Englund Nonprofit Law, P.C. in March 1993 shortly after her first child, Drew, was born. In the past twenty years Sandy has added a daughter and another son to the family, and developed a nation-wide and international practice assisting nonprofit organizations. Sandra's son Drew is in law school now and plans to take on Pfau Englund Nonprofit Law, P.C. once finishing.
Sandy had her "aha moment" about working for tax-exempt organizations as a third year law student at George Washington University when she took a course from adjunct professor, Bruce Hopkins, author of the "Bible" of tax-exempt law, The Law of Tax-Exempt Organizations. Sandy has assisted hundreds of organizations apply for and obtain 501(c)(3) tax-exemption and provides ongoing legal counsel to a wide variety of nonprofits from international "friends of" fundraising organizations to organizations involved in education, environment, technology, health and much more
Pfau Englund Nonprofit Law provides personalized service to our nonprofit and NGO clients. We think our law firm is a little different than most because:
1) We tell you our fees up front. Many services, like 501(c)(3)(Form 1023 or 1023EZ), are provided for a flat fee. Our rule - no surprises when you get your bill!
2) We stand behind our work.
We don't just fill in the blanks. We stand behind the work we do and
include in our flat fees responses to IRS additional questions about the Form 1023, 1023EZ or 1024 until an IRS initial determination is made.
3) Concierge law. We limit the number of retainer clients that we take to make sure we can provide each client with customized service. We want to understand your organization's mission and activities, how you are staffed and operated, so that we can head-off liabilities or legal issues before they happen.
