Our Leadership

Liberty Counsel's Board of Directors is responsible for setting policies and for oversight of the organization. The Founder and Chairman is Mathew D. Staver and the President is Anita L. Staver, both of whom are attorneys. Together, they lead a talented and dedicated group of attorneys and staff. The independent members of the Board set the compensation for the leadership team, after a review of compensation data from similar nonprofit groups.

Liberty Counsel's Board of Directors has adopted a Christian doctrinal statement, but Liberty Counsel does not limit its services to Christians, as the rights of Christians are affected positively by defending the rights of others.

Working with Other Organizations

Liberty Counsel cooperates and coordinates its efforts with other religious liberty, pro-life and pro-family organizations. Liberty Counsel's legal staff has represented many notable clients, including Focus on the Family, Child Evangelism Fellowship, Liberty University and the Christian Educators Association International. Believing there is strength in unity, Liberty Counsel has joined forces to collaborate with many groups and organizations. We believe that like-minded groups should cooperate, but that we should not all become one group. (Two are better than one ... and a three-fold cord is not easily broken. Eccl. 4:9,12).
