My passion is providing nonprofit organizations with tools and resources to achieve their philanthropic missions. I believe in the power of nonprofits to make our world better educated, healthier and more humane. My law practice is dedicated to the representation of nonprofit organizations, their senior management and volunteer leaders. I advise a diverse group of nonprofits in all aspects of their organization, administration and management. I write and speak nationally on topics related to nonprofit organizations, focusing in particular on corporate governance and tax/regulatory compliance. In addition, I have been engaged as an expert witness in state and federal litigation matters, providing strategic counsel and trial testimony. One of my favorite diversions from the law is facilitating public dialogues including serving as guest moderator of Carolina Business Review, the most widely watched broadcast program on business and public policy in the Carolinas. An active community leader, I have served on and chaired many nonprofit boards including, most recently, Discovery Place and Women Executives.
