Being a lawyer can get a little boring. So, Em Robertson, of Rubric Legal LLC, is the self-proclaimed Santa Lawyer. Em loves [secular] Christmas more than anyone you have ever met, including your kids. It is not uncommon to see Em wearing an amazingly dorky homemade holiday sweater 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, Em 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 Santa Lawyer Contest was born when Em 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, Em 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 Em’s antics, we hope that Em locks in a place in history as THE SANTA LAWYER.
