About the Attorney

Jill S. England

After graduating from law school at UC Davis in 1991, I began developing a corporate practice, with an increasing focus on creating and advising nonprofit organizations.  Now, with over 25 years experience, I provide expert legal counsel for California nonprofit organizations and small businesses, including trade/industry associations, charitable organizations, educational and research foundations, religious corporations, business corporations, limited liability companies, agricultural cooperatives, and state and local government entities (including joint powers authorities).  

I am well positioned to assist with the many legal issues that regularly arise for nonprofit organizations and small businesses, including:

  • Formation issues (articles, bylaws, tax exempt status)
  • Personnel issues (hiring/firing, employee handbooks, privacy)
  • Contracts, membership and shareholder agreements
  • Board of director/membership issues (meeting protocol, elections)
  • Attorney General compliance
  • Political action committees
  • Service marks and trademarks
  • Copyright protection
  • Insurance coverage issues
  • Name changes
  • Entity Dissolution

With expertise in areas specifically affecting California state and local government entities, I can also assist you with questions about the Public Records Act, the Fair Political Practices Act, and the open meeting laws.    

I'll find solutions for your issues - in a timely,cost effective, and professional manner.
