I am a business tax attorney who provides clients with trusted advice concerning significant transactions, tax planning, and difficult challenges encountered in their daily operations. My practice is focused on state and local tax compliance and controversies, including Ohio and multistate sales/use tax, commercial activity tax, and personal income tax issues. Additionally, I represent client in negotiating and drafting agreements for commercial and real estate transactions, and in federal income tax controversies with the Internal Revenue Service.
Because of my tax background, I often advise clients on the business and tax implications related to their corporate structure and significant transactions. I take pride in understanding my clients' business needs and objectives so I can help them achieve their goals in the most beneficial, yet practical, manner.
Also, as the Chair of the Ohio State Bar Association Taxation Committee, I have been asked to present my opinion concerning tax laws and policy to Ohio legislatures on behalf of the Bar Association. These opportunities have given me invaluable insight into the legislative process and the practical considerations that mold tax policy.
