I take a personal interest in my clients and specialize in helping them find solutions to all of their business and individual needs. This means that my clients trust me on a wide range of legal and financial issues that affect their daily lives.
After an early career as a professional pianist, I began to do Tax Preparation for myself and my fellow musicians. This experience is one component of my ongoing practice of providing legal representation to individuals in contracts. I also saw the necessity of protecting assets through Wills, Trusts, and Estate Planning.
In addition to my tax and legal expertise, I have ten years of experience as a Special Education Teacher with NYC Teaching Fellows. Because of this, I have seen firsthand the importance of providing legal representation for those with special needs. The problems faced by these individuals are not abstract concepts to me.
I am a graduate of Brooklyn Law School with a Certificate in Intellectual Property, Media, and Information Law. While in law school, I won the Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE) competition for an app design to help Indie Filmmakers in developing contracts. Additionally, I won Regional Law School Mediation competition. This award alone is indicative of my ability to find solutions.

I knew very little about Ca cannabis tax laws. This was an eye-opener. Even though I may never get involved with a cannabis related tax return, just having the knowledge this course provided gives makes me a better-informed tax preparer. Thank you, Paula Collins.

Excellent presentation. Presenter was prepared and answered all questions even to the point of carrying on a discussion with the questioner. What impressed me most was that when she did not know the answer to a question, she said so.

Paula explains things so clearly and effectively and with a sense of humor to keep it from being too "dry". This was very well done.
