Church Law Updates
New Church To Start Soon
Matt was excited to attend the ground breaking ceremony for a new five million dollar church facility being built in Madison, Mississippi. Matt has been involved in the project from day one and he has been instrumental in helping the church negotiate contracts related to financing, architecture and construction.
After Hurricane Katrina, FEMA donated several trailers to various churches in some of the effected areas. BLF donated our legal services to assist one of the churches in drawing up agreements which allowed individuals to enter into a lease purchase agreement with the church. This enabled individuals to purchase a FEMA trailer at a greatly reduced price, with the proceeds going to the church to help other families in need.
Recently, Matt was retained to advise a church involved in a major real estate transaction involving $2,000,000.00 worth of property. After the buyer walked away from the deal because they were unable to secure financing, our client was paid twice the amount that they otherwise would have received as a direct result of Matt's counsel during the negotiating process. This ensured that our client was compensated fairly for the amount of time, effort and expense they put into putting the transaction together.
