I was very pleased with the professional services provided by Attorney D’Lorah. She is easy to work with and takes the time to explain all information so that you understand the pros and cons of any actions you may be contemplating. I highly recommend her for your non-profit needs!
"I must thank you for your help with my application...I found your assistance was very prompt and professional...I received the new card mush faster that I anticipated. You are God sent. I will highly recommend you, if I know anyone who needs assistance with immigration papers."
D'Lorah is one of the most compassionate attorneys I have ever known. She advocates with vigor and has command of the law, and practices with a grace and compassion that shows her deep caring for her clients. If more attorneys had D'Lorah's character the legal profession would have a much better reputation.
Let me start by saying shortly after we secured her to do work for us, she lost her mother to cancer. She worked on completing our employee contracts and incorporating New Beech Grove Baptist church in order for us to purchase a multimillion dollar property, while at her mother’s bedside. She never used her mother’s battle as an excuse not to get our work done. If you are looking for a competent, professional, dedicated attorney, you will not find one better than Dr. D’Lorah.
Whenever I need expert advice on matters of law, organizational development, or non-profit start-ups, D'Lorah Butts-Lucas Law Office is where I go. Their cost is affordable, and the service is professional and personal. Dr. D'Lorah Butts-Lucas is the go-to person for all nonprofit-related issues, especially where churches are concerned.
