“My husband and I were referred to your firm by LegalShield for assistance regarding an IRS tax audit.  We talked with one of your attorneys by phone.  We were impressed with his background which combines being both a CPA and a tax attorney.  He was very knowledgeable and gave advice with clarity and in a very timely manner.  He quickly grasped the situation and told us exactly what we needed to do, both now and over the next few months.  He demonstrated a rare talent for understanding the issues and gave good and effective legal advice, as well as a practical approach to successfully resolving our concerns.”
