Please answer the following questions so KCVLAA can determine: (1) if you have a legal or accounting problem; (2) if that problem is arts-related; and (3) if your organization falls within our budget guidelines.
We have attempted to keep this application brief and uncomplicated. While we do not require information regarding your artistic activities, including your news releases, brochures, or lists of exhibits and performances, this information may assist our referral process and are welcome. All information submitted is kept confidential. When a referral is made, however, a copy of this application will be forwarded to the volunteer who agrees to handle your case.  KCVLAA is not staffed to provide emergency legal or accounting assistance. Please be prepared to wait two to four weeks for your application to be processed.
KCVLAA does not charge for professional services. Once a referral has been made, however, clients are responsible for filing and other fees. KCVLAA does not ask its volunteers to litigate matters. Volunteers will, however, try to negotiate a solution on your behalf and/or advise you on the merits of resolving your dispute through mediation or in small claims court.

How did you hear about KCVLAA?

I understand that:

  • KCVLAA can neither guarantee that it will be able to refer my case to a volunteer nor that the representation will be successful.  KCVLAA is merely a referral organization.
  • KCVLAA makes no representation as to the skill of the referral attorney/accountant.
  • I will be represented by the volunteer or the volunteer’s firm and not by KCVLAA.

I agree:

  • That in the event litigation or arbitration becomes necessary, I will not oppose my volunteer’s decision to withdraw from representation.
  • To include the KCVLAA logo in my brochures and other publication for two years after receiving assistance.
  • To promptly notify KCVLAA if I no longer need the assistance of a volunteer.
