Alice helped us work through a complex issue involving nonprofit law and accounting (we paired her with our accountant, and it's turned out to be a fabulous combination). She's both a strategic thinker and very detail-oriented. She provides great assistance and is tremendously responsive. And, she was able to provide us with a marvelous referral for an IP attorney.

I have worked with Alice on various projects for a decade or so. She understands how to ask for context about the project so that she can tailor her advice so that it is relevant, specific, and helpful. She always seems to be on top of the latest issues, and has been happy to refer me to various public websites for information, as opposed to her doing so and then charging! She has great experience and is a delight to work with.

To me, the hallmark of a good attorney, is that they listen, and carefully assess the requirements of their clients without making too many assumptions. Alice Anderson was careful and thoughtful in her approach. I think my case was unusual in that it bridged non-profit business law and aspects of other areas of law as well, and when I asked her if she would have a conference with my other lawyer, she handled that carefully and did her homework. I am an individual, not a corporation, and Alice made sure that I understood all the details and ramifications of my situation. She advised me and gave me options without dictating the "only solution". It was a complicated situation (at least it seemed that way to me) so I'm glad she was thorough. It was also reassuring to get a little hand-holding and coaching when I needed it. She was efficient, and the process actually went faster than I had anticipated.
My honest feeling is that if you are looking for a non-profit attorney who does their job efficiently, carefully and creatively, you couldn't find a better lawyer than Alice Anderson. When the bill came I was very pleasantly surprised at how she added up the hours. No complaints here; it was a great experience and I would use her services again in a second.
