I have joined forces with two experienced lawyers,
John B. Madden, Jr. and Barry Black, to form a law firm. Nelson Madden Black LLP will concentrate on the representation of
churches, temples, synagogues, mosques, religious schools and other religious institutions. We will soon put up a firm website:
look for it here. We
represent clients in federal, state
and city courts and agencies, in arbitrations, in administrative and church courts, and in business negotiations.
Areas of practice include: litigation; church governance; breach of contract disputes; copyright enforcement and defense;
First Amendment litigation; administrative and judicial appeals; political and religious asylum applications and appeals;
church real estate development and construction; religious worker visa applications; church discipline and representation.
The firm's experience is too broad to be described on one page. Please review the page of this website that relates
most closely to your particular needs. If you need further information, or if we can be of help to you, please phone or email
us and we will respond promptly.
