Religious Corporations

Religious corporations have special legal protections, as well as obligations. At the Law Office of Mark Cohen, P.C., I assist a wide range of religious organizations here in Fremont, California, and throughout the East Bay, including churches, mosques, Jewish organizations, Hindu temples, Sikh temples and more with the legal problems they face. I am one of the very few attorneys in the East Bay area who focuses on this special area of law.

At the Law Office of Mark Cohen, P.C., I help churches, mosques, temples and other religious organizations, as well as other nonprofit corporations, with a wide range of legal services, including:

  • Formation of a nonprofit corporation
  • Qualification for tax-exempt status
  • Creation of organization documents

I have a long track record of obtaining successful results for my clients. My broad base of legal knowledge allows me to see the “big picture” in regard to religious corporation and church law matters. I have litigated in court several disputes involving religious corporations. See Singh vs. Singh, 114 Cal. App 4th 1264.

Appointed Special Master And Arbitrator

I have been appointed by the Alameda County Superior Court as a special master to supervise court-ordered elections. I have also been appointed as an arbitrator to decide a religious organization dispute.

Resolving Disputes Within Religious Corporations

One way in which an experienced attorney can help a religious institution is by resolving disputes within the organization. I have successfully resolved numerous disputes among members of different religious organizations and among members of single organizations. If you feel that your rights as a member of a church, mosque, synagogue, temple or other religious entity are being violated, I can help you seek appropriate legal remedies.
