Client Comments

"I have worked with Jeff for many years and have found him to be resourceful, helpful, and very knowledgeable in Tax Law. He uses the Code and regulations directly, so I can follow along with the citations and know what the law says. He not only helps us interpret the Tax Law, but he can write the agreements we need and incorporate favorable tax effects. I highly recommend him. "
