Thank you Neil and Team!

The best Tax lawyer I've ever met. He's SUPER friendly and talks to you in a non-legal way. He tries to save you money and get the issue solved quickly.

Thanks, Neil!

The issue I brought to Neil was a very simple one and didn't take long to resolve, but the short time I spent working with him gave me the impression that he knows his stuff and takes pride in his work. I will certainly call him in the future if the tax collectors come calling unjustly again.

John and Neil are such professionals. I was in a really bad state, but they were very supportive and always let me know that there were options. One of their earlier advice saved me $30k! They are the best at what they do and worth every penny!
