Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (CASE) and it's dba, American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), have won many cases before the U.S. Supreme court and have assisted many, perhaps hundreds of individuals in the U.S. and other countries win legal victories protecting religious and other human rights. They are also functioning as a para-government organization to file law suits and FOIA requests to discover and expose illegal and potentially treasonous activity by U.S. elected officials and and employees of the federal government. This is invaluable for the future of humanity. Corruption in the highest levels of the U.S. government is a threat to the future of mankind. While the Sekulow family may benefit financially in significant amounts more typical of for profit enterprises than nonprofits the good that the CASE-ACLJ family of entities accomplishes cannot be denied, and is paralleled by only one organization, the Alliance Defending Freedom. About 25% of the CASE revenue is spent on publicizing issues of concern to political aware evangelicals. Almost one third of CASE revenue is paid to ACLJ, which has 123 employees and 21 attorneys working to protect religious and human rights for people who can not afford to defend themselves. To call CASE and ACLJ a scam is not a reasonable use of the word. I think God is using CASE and ACLJ in significant ways.
Review from Guidestar
The ACLJ rightly filed a lawsuit against IRS/Lois Lerner for abuse conservative non profit groups. I am not sure what some of these reviews are calling it a "Fraud" but they need to get their facts straight. Plus, the DOJ just settled with some of the TEA party groups for being harassed by the IRS cronies.

Jay and Jordan Sekulow, ATTYS, filed fraud on court lawsuit for Tea Party Patriots Conservatives May 29, 2013, lied about IRS. Lied to Congress, DOJ, FYI. Created nationwide fraud and presses to falsely dismantle IRS. Withheld material facts. Corrupt. http://www.voiceink.blogspot.com
The American Center for Law and Justice is one of the few effective groups that works to protect Biblical values and the Judeo/Christian values that are under attack today by the secular left including politicians, media outlets, and numerous secular non-profits.
We thank God that someone is fighting back to maintain some of our religious freedoms as Christians and Jews.

A Horror Story! Similar experience. Jay and Jordan Sekulow filed TeaParty, Patriot, Conservative lawsuit 5-29-2013 in DC District Ct (Civil) against IRS-DOJ. Jay and his clients concealed material facts from the court in their lawsuit. Jay and Jordan helped their call to dismantle IRS. I wrote to ACLJ. They ignored my correspondence. I filed a Motion to intervene in their lawsuit on June 28, 2013 w/ copies and attachments with Clerk's ofc., and mailed copies w/ attachments to parties. The motion is pending (under Rule 24(a)(1)(2) primary and/or Rule 24(2) discretion). As of today, 8-15-2013, I haven't heard back from anybody, including Congressional subcommittee investigating IRS-DOJ. Please read my story about how I told Jay in writing that his clients plagiarized and copyright infringed and sold my published obama political and religious POV as their own. Jay withheld that from Court. DON'T TRUST JAY! http://www.voiceink.blogspot.com/2013/06/breaking-news-teaparty-patriots.html
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) claims to defend Religious liberty (“Religious” referring to the Christian Religion, and understood in the same sense as America’s founders understood it). They essentially try to undo all the damage done by the ACLU (a communist front organization). Their lead attorney, Jay Seculow, apparently has taken cases all the way to the Supreme Court and won some of them! However, I have had a bad experience with the ACLJ. Having been a faithful, yearly donor for at least the last 7 years, and in October (2009) having been confronted with a legal problem that I understood to be closely tied to Religious liberty (my Christian Faith), I called their legal help-line. Instead of being allowed to explain my concern, I was rudely interrogated by a minimalist personality who appeared to be more interested in marginalizing my concern than in hearing what my concern was! He hung up on me while I was in mid-sentence. Being troubled at the incongruity between this man’s behavior and the ostensible objectives of the ACLJ, I wrote a certified letter to the ACLJ asking for clarification. After they refused to answer my first letter, I wrote a second letter, not certified this time. Again they have not responded; and in fact they have apparently removed me from their mailing list –- something I had NOT asked them to do. Add to this the fact that they send copious numbers of alarming communications; and they have been unabashed at asking for huge sums of money –- they once called me on the telephone and asked for $1000 –- I now have grave concerns about whether this organization is actually doing what they claim. My recommendation: STEER CLEAR of the ACLJ.
