BLC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit legal organization that helps new small business owners and entrepreneurs of limited means. Our organization matches these small business owners with experienced business lawyers looking to do pro bono work.
Essentially, BLC is a connecting point between entrepreneurs who can’t afford legal counsel and attorneys willing to give back to their community and provide free legal services.
Entrepreneurs in need of legal counsel may apply to the BLC for help, and business lawyers looking to help the community may join the BLC network for pro bono opportunities.
BLC’s objective is two-fold: (1) to create jobs by assisting entrepreneurs in forming and protecting their new and growing business interests; and (2) to enrich community economic development through the legal education of entrepreneurs and small business owners.
