Being a non-profit company means your business has one goal in mind: helping others. You have dedicated yourself to making the world a better place in your own small way, and that is your sole focus.

The truth is that legal problems will crop up, no matter what kind of company you are. Having a lawyer on hand will make it easier to solve the problem, and prevent further issues in the future. But how can you know who the "right" nonprofit lawyer in Los Angeles is? Here are a few places to find good nonprofit lawyers in Los Angeles:
The California Bar Association -- The state bar association keeps a list of all the lawyers, as well as details on their specialties and fields of expertise. You can visit the American Bar Association website (http://apps.americanbar.org/legalservices/findlegalhelp/home.cfm) and navigate to the California State Directory. There, you'll find a list of lawyers that meet the ABA standards for lawyer referral. All you have to do is find one in Los Angeles, pick up the phone, and get in touch!
Lawyer Referral Service -- The LRS has a list of state bar-certified lawyers, organized according to county. Here, you can find lawyers who have chosen to be listed as non-profit or charity lawyers. The website provides full contact details for the lawyers and their firms.
Ask around -- If you are in contact with other charities or nonprofit organizations, ask them which law firm they use for legal counsel. This type of referral can often carry the most weight, as they have years of working with the lawyer, and thus are familiar with the quality of legal service.
Law Schools -- Visit the websites of the best law schools in California (Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC Los Angeles, UC Irvine, Gould, etc.), and see if they can provide you with information on the best legal firms for non-profit companies.
