Mission Statement

Texas Accountants and Lawyers for the Arts (TALA) was formed in 1979 to meet the legal and accounting needs of artists and nonprofit organizations. TALA is the largest provider of pro bono legal and accounting services to the arts in the United States. TALA volunteers throughout Texas handle more than 800 matters per year. This amounts to more than one million dollars annually in donated services to the arts and cultural community.

TALA provides free legal and accounting services to arts nonprofits and artists from all creative disciplines, including visual artists, musicians, actors, dancers, film makers and writers. Over 600 attorneys and accountants donate their time to artists and nonprofit organizations who are unable to afford professional services. Without TALA, their problems would remain unresolved and their interests unrepresented.

Our services include lawyer and accountant pro bono assistance, dispute resolution services, educational programs for the artistic and business community, publications, and a resource library. Programs are designed to help artists apply legal and accounting concepts for their benefit. Your membership dollars provide for TALA's small staff, office facilities and insurance coverage necessary to coordinate and support TALA volunteers.
