Being a nonprofit tax lawyer can get a little boring. So, Emily Robertson, of Rubric Legal LLC, is the self-proclaimed Santa Lawyer. Emily loves [secular] Christmas more than anyone you have ever met, including your kids. It is not uncommon to see Emily wearing amazingly dorky homemade holiday sweaters and a Santa hat, or the more business appropriate light-up and musical holiday tie. When not filling the world with holiday glee and jingles, Emily is dedicated to working with small to medium-size nonprofits and tax exempt organizations on the legal issues that are unique to the nonprofit sector. The firm works with all shapes and sizes of nonprofits through a sliding-fee scale so that more organizations can afford legal advice from someone who works in and around the nonprofit community every day.
Santa Lawyer and the annual Rubric Legal Santa Lawyer Contest was born when Emily wanted to do something a bit more entertaining than just sending out cards to spread holiday cheer. By promoting interest and awareness of small nonprofit organizations, Emily hopes to draw attention to some of the amazing organizations that may be flying under your radar. By sending out all sorts of holiday-themed images regarding my antics, things Emily wears, decorations Emily has, etc., Emily hopes to lock in a place in history as THE SANTA LAWYER.
