Zatopa&Stephens : Non-Profit Corporations
Zatopa & Siegel, Attorneys at Law

We provide legal counseling to non-profit and for-profit corporations that operate Group Homes and Foster Family Agencies that are licensed by the California Department of Social Services, Community Care Licensing. These residential facilities provide residential care, mental health services, and special education to children who are within the custody of the Juvenile Courts in California, after being adjudicated as abused or neglected, or as having committed a juvenile offense.

We also provide legal counseling to corporations that operate certified non-public special education schools approved by the California Department of Education, either to serve disabled students who reside in Group Homes or Foster Family Agencies, or to serve special education students placed by local public educational agencies that do not have public programs available to serve such students and operate only day programs.

The services we provide to such corporate entities include:

  • Counseling on how to best insure that the students such corporations serve, either residentially or in day programs, receive appropriate special education services from the public school districts or county offices of education that are responsible for their special education programs.
  • Legal research and advice on specific legal issues that such corporations may face on issues ranging from their licensing obligations, contractual obligations or potential legal liability for their actions.
  • Risk management, i.e. advice on how to approach and minimize the liability of such corporations on various issues.
