A little more than a year since opening Greater Good Legal, a law firm specializing in lower-cost legal services for startups and nonprofits, attorney Mark Aurand, said a fourth lawyer has joined the firm as of counsel, expanding the firm’s reach to the greater Philadelphia area.
Michele Perlstein, will work out of co-working space in Philadelphia, much like the way the rest of firm is organized.
Greater Good also takes up co-working space in a business incubator in South Bethlehem at 301 Broadway and in the Bridgeworks Enterprise Center in Allentown, where the attorneys work with many of the startup businesses there.
“We are trying to create a dynamic where we are among the people we are helping, “Aurand said.
Aurand said Perlstein’s areas of focus will be in health care and nonprofits.
As a health care attorney, Perlstein has drafted legal documents for hospitals and other charitable institutions.
She also has extensive experience working with nonprofits and charities, including legal representation, grant writing and grant review work.
Greater Good Legal was founded on the idea of offering lower-cost legal services to nonprofits, startups and other entities that may have difficulty affording the fees of a more traditional firm.
The firm reduces fees by keeping overhead costs down, working through co-working spaces and by using cloud technology.
