What Artists are Saying
"PVLA has been a godsend...They connected me with responsive attorneys who are good with what they do."
"We've appreciated the benefits PVLA has provided to us, but beyond that, we've appreciated how friendly the team is, and how responsive to our ideas and needs. We're glad to continue the partnership!"
"It was a pleasure to work with [an organization] who clearly cares about the arts in Philadelphia."
"PVLA worked diligently and efficiently to get me in touch with a lawyer whose specialty was perfectly fitted to my needs in understanding the recording contract I was offered."
"Without PVLA, and the unlikely chance of being matched with two experienced patent attorneys, … my goals would not have been fulfilled; my invention would never have manifested, and I say that with conviction. Volunteer patent services make dreams come true."
"The PVLA team was extremely responsive and provided very clear and concise expertise on the matter. I'm very grateful for their help."
"Thanks to [the PVLA volunteer lawyer’s] knowledge and assistance - I was able to copyright and trademark our MusicMan Academy and Schoener Fund logos as we are in the process of opening new branches of our programs. They documented and explained the entire process and always listened to my questions. Our volunteer lawyer asked me for my input along the way and always confirmed my understanding. I never felt rushed to make a decision but they also kept me on track in order to keep the process fluid."
"I went to PVLA for legal assistance for an issue with Philadanco’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax status in the 1970s. A PVLA volunteer was paired with me and after his initial help with my legal issues, he quickly became my trusted legal advisor. His volunteer work led to his continued support of Philadanco as a Board Member and Chairman Emeritus over the last 40 years."
"In 2005, when I started ARTsisters, a group of professional women artists who empower each other and the community through art, I contacted PVLA for advice about some legal issues. They were very helpful and supportive and their advice saved me time and money; I really appreciated having someone to talk to about legal art issues."
