What Clients Are Saying…
“The Dr. Phil Foundation in Los Angeles recently had the privilege of working with Mollie to prepare an agreement between the Foundation and a national nonprofit whose mission is to restore and revitalize music in the public schools. This transaction involved a significant contribution from the Foundation.
The legal services Mollie provided were prompt and professional. She was knowledgeable and took a genuine interest our project and always ensured that our interests were always protected. Should the need arise in the future we would not hesitate to utilize her services again.”
— Steve Davidson, President/CEO, The Dr. Phil Foundation
“Mollie Cullinane…has been instrumental in the success of Kinetic Kids, which has grown exponentially each year. . . In many critical ways, Mollie is personally responsible for much of the success of Kinetic Kids.
Mollie … is upbeat, encouraging, exceedingly reliable and competent in every way.”
— Peggy Neal, President, Kinetic Kids, Inc.
“Mollie Cullinane is a vital reason for the existence of Luke Lives On. Her encouragement for our mission coupled with her vast legal knowledge gave me the confidence to move forward with the start-up of our non-profit. She has been easy and straightforward to work with. It’s amazing to see how much progress our organization has made in the last few months thanks to her efforts. We highly recommend Mollie and her services.“
— Lisa Hays, President, Luke Lives On
“Even the best Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO’s) experience a high turnover rate. Ours was no exception. Somehow, as the years went on, operating as usual, I found out that our PTO never filed the paperwork with the IRS that was needed to obtain a 501(3)(c) non-profit declaration. Wanting to save our PTO’s money I looked into filing the forms myself. It was overwhelming – 23 pages of budget analysis, past, present and future expectation, Bylaws, Conflict of Interest policy, and more!! Our board members and I agreed that we, as parents with jobs, kids, and no experience in non-profit law, needed to seek professional help through an attorney. Mollie Cullinane was the first person we reached out to. She was absolutely amazing! Mollie is warm, friendly, uplifting, and positive. Our IRS application was mailed off yesterday and I feel like such a weight has been lifted and I can breathe easy again! I’m so pleased that our PTO chose Mollie and would definitely recommend her to anyone else that needs non-profit legal help.”
– Alisa Copeland, President, Lago Vista Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization
“Mollie has been a huge asset to the Texas Radiological Society Foundation. Over the past two years she has helped us with everything from our start up and compiling legal documents and policies, etc. Mollie is a joy to work with and is professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and turns our projects around quickly. We absolutely benefit from working with Mollie with each project that brings us together.”
— Christy McDonald, Executive Director, Texas Radiological Society Foundation
“I was skeptical about investing money into a lawyer… But it when it comes to starting something that has so many legal implications, I decided to hire Mollie instead (for the start-up of our new nonprofit). Mollie did such a great job. Any questions I had, she would quickly return my calls or emails to alleviate my concerns. I really do believe I saved myself a lot of headaches hiring Mollie as my representative. She did such a great job, not just as a lawyer but also as a believer of my organization’s cause…. Mollie took the frustration out of the whole process. The best part of it all is the speed in which everything got done. We filed for tax-exemption in mid-June, and six-weeks later we were tax-exempt! I don’t believe that would have been possible if I would have done it myself. In all honesty, Mollie was not just a lawyer, but a friend through the whole process.”
— Fred Bailon, President and Founder, Mile Strong Kids
“I gladly recommend Mollie Cullinane as an attorney for any nonprofit organization. Mollie provided thorough legal advice and expertise regarding the legal formation of our new nonprofit corporation; her counsel created a foundation for our success. She guided us through legal documents, memos, and fiscal sponsorship agreements. Starting a nonprofit organization may be particularly difficult for those with little legal knowledge…but that was never a concern for us. We could always trust Mollie to use her broad base of legal experience and to provide detail-oriented direction. It is evident that she always had our best interest in mind; with her help we were able to reach our nonprofit goals.”
— Ashley Dellagiacoma, President, The Spiritual Pride Project
