VOLUNTEER LAWYERS AND ACCOUNTANTS TO THE ARTS (VLAA)
Founded in 1982, St. Louis Volunteer Lawyers and Accountants for the Arts (VLAA) connects artists and arts organizations of every discipline with accountants and lawyers who donate their time and expertise to help their appreciative clients navigate the complicated world of finance and law. It also provide information and skills training designed to help the arts community develop sound business practices. Through VLAA, more than 300 accountants and lawyers offer counsel to artists and administrators who are asking for help in record numbers. Each year, volunteers donate more than $100,000 in pro bono services to the arts community.
BiState attorneys donate their legal services to deserving artists who otherwise may not be able to afford access to an attorney, primarily for issues involving copyrights and trademarks.
We encourage everyone to learn more about these incredible organizations that are making impacts in our community.
