Legal Consultation Program

A New Benefit for CSAE Members

ASK THE EXPERT–30 Minutes Free Legal Consultation

Have you ever had a question that required a quick answer? Have you wondered who to turn to for trusted legal advice? Or, does your association have business or members that cross state lines and you find yourself needing assistance from a firm that knows the laws in various states? It’s scary when you don’t know where to go for answers to your specific problems or challenges.

The following legal firms have offered to give 30 minutes free legal consultation per incident. After the 30 minutes if you need additional time, you can then establish a client/attorney relationship with legal counsel. These attorneys are trusted and well known within the association community. For a detailed list of their specialization, just visit their website.

You must be a member in good standing with CSAE to participate in this free 30 minute consultation. To participate in the program, call, 303-650-0301 or email jt@csae.org and briefly outline your question. Your question will then be forwarded to legal counsel so a confidential call can be scheduled with you. You may select the firm you wish to work with, or CSAE will, by rotation, send your request to the next firm participating in the program.

All questions should be association related. Normal and not-so-normal association management questions are acceptable, including:

  • Contracts – strategic partnerships/ sponsorships; technology, service and hotel agreements
  • Human Resources – employment law, personnel policies
  • Compliance – regulatory issues, credential issues, public disclosure, tax exemptions,Form 990
  • Governance – risk management; policies, bylaws, mergers
