We have terrifically happy clients…
The Dr. Phil Foundation in Los Angeles recently had the privilege of working with Mollie to prepare an agreement between the Foundation and a national nonprofit whose mission is to restore and revitalize music in the public schools. This transaction involved a significant contribution from the Foundation.
The legal services Mollie provided were prompt and professional. She was knowledgeable and took a genuine interest our project and always ensured that our interests were always protected. Should the need arise in the future we would not hesitate to utilize her services again.”
Steve Davidson, President/CEO The Dr. Phil Foundation
Foundations and giving are about trust, character, honor and service to others. The Nancy Lieberman Foundation found all those qualities in the Mollie Cullinane and the Cullinane Law Group. We are the fortunate ones to have her on our team.”

I am writing this to give a very strong recommendation for Mollie and Jeff Cullinane and the Cullinane Law Group. Our organization recently applied for 501c3 nonprofit status with the IRS and Mollie and Jeff made the process effortless.
Mollie walked us through the application and helped us formulate our answers to meet IRS requirements. She was also able to advise us as to what type of nonprofit status would best serve our needs and how the organization should be structured. In addition, Mollie answered all our questions and gave us guidelines for how our operations need to be handled going forward to comply with IRS requirements.
Jeff helped us establish certain legal agreements and releases we need to begin offering our services to the public. His knowledge and experience in this area was invaluable to us.
Our application process could not have gone more smoothly. Thank you, Mollie and Jeff, for everything. We couldn’t have done it without you. And we look forward to working with you on an ongoing basis.”

Mollie Cullinane…has been instrumental in the success of Kinetic Kids, which has grown exponentially each year. . . In many critical ways, Mollie is personally responsible for much of the success of Kinetic Kids.
Mollie … is upbeat, encouraging, exceedingly reliable and competent in every way.”
Peggy Neal, President Kinetic Kids, Inc.
Even the best Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO’s) experience a high turnover rate. Ours was no exception. Somehow, as the years went on, operating as usual, I found out that our PTO never filed the paperwork with the IRS that was needed to obtain a 501(3)(c) non-profit declaration. Wanting to save our PTO’s money I looked into filing the forms myself. It was overwhelming – 23 pages of budget analysis, past, present and future expectation, Bylaws, Conflict of Interest policy, and more!! Our board members and I agreed that we, as parents with jobs, kids, and no experience in non-profit law, needed to seek professional help through an attorney. Mollie Cullinane was the first person we reached out to. She was absolutely amazing! Mollie is warm, friendly, uplifting, and positive. Our IRS application was mailed off yesterday and I feel like such a weight has been lifted and I can breathe easy again! I’m so pleased that our PTO chose Mollie and would definitely recommend her to anyone else that needs non-profit legal help.”

Mollie Cullinane is a vital reason for the existence of Luke Lives On. Her encouragement for our mission coupled with her vast legal knowledge gave me the confidence to move forward with the start-up of our non-profit. She has been easy and straightforward to work with. It’s amazing to see how much progress our organization has made in the last few months thanks to her efforts. We highly recommend Mollie and her services.”
Lisa Hays, President Luke Lives On
I was skeptical about investing money into a lawyer… But it when it comes to starting something that has so many legal implications, I decided to hire Mollie instead (for the start-up of our new nonprofit). Mollie did such a great job. Any questions I had, she would quickly return my calls or emails to alleviate my concerns. I really do believe I saved myself a lot of headaches hiring Mollie as my representative. She did such a great job, not just as a lawyer but also as a believer of my organization’s cause…. Mollie took the frustration out of the whole process. The best part of it all is the speed in which everything got done. We filed for tax-exemption in mid-June, and six-weeks later we were tax-exempt! I don’t believe that would have been possible if I would have done it myself. In all honesty, Mollie was not just a lawyer, but a friend through the whole process.”

Mollie has been a huge asset to the Texas Radiological Society Foundation. Over the past two years she has helped us with everything from our start up and compiling legal documents and policies, etc. Mollie is a joy to work with and is professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and turns our projects around quickly. We absolutely benefit from working with Mollie with each project that brings us together.”
Christy McDonald, Executive Director Texas Radiological Society Foundation
Wow, thank you so much. I really appreciate how hard you've been working on our case with the IRS - we are lucky to have found you as our lawyer. You have been so diligent and dedicated to ensuring our organization is set up for success for years to come. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.
