Whether you need an attorney to represent you with an Offer in compromise, in U.S. Tax Court, IRS Appeals, Collection Due Process Hearings for Tax Liens and Levies., I recommend Suzanne. I am a fellow attorney and have recommend Suzanne Ascher for years and have never heard a complaint.

Very bright lady, understanding, and compassionate. Very sharp. Suzanne was there for us to get us through our tax problems. She got us through the emotional tough times we had and got the problem fixed. We love Suzanne! She is a special person.

Suzanne A. Ascher has been both my accountant and my legal adviser for several years on both business and personal matters. I am completely satisfied with the professional services that have been administered by her over the years. She is extremely knowledgeable and talented in all facets of tax preparation, tax law, and estate planning. She is tenacious is her approach to problem solving. She is also terrific.

Ms. Suzanne Ascher worked with me for two years to resolve my tax problems exceeding $1,000,000.00 with the IRS. I felt comfortable with her level of tax experience (lawyer, CPA, two law degrees, etc.) and the fact that she was a native of Staten Island also put me at ease. Facing the IRS' seizure of all of my business and personal assets, Ms. Ascher forcefully stood by my side. She fought the IRS for two years, ultimately accomplishing tax a credit of over $350,000.00 in penalties and interest and saved my business from seizure and foreclosure. She is a true professional, highly experienced, and a no-nonsense tax attorney who is knowledgeable of all IRS tax law. If were not for Ms. Ascher, I would have lost everything including both my business and my home. Case closed. My business sails on thanks to her.

Suzanne Ascher was highly recommended to me by another professional for my New York State problems. I originally owed the state over $200,000.00 for back sales taxes, interest, and penalties from many years ago. It was a very difficult case. Suzanne Ascher worked on my offer in compromise with the state. She also obtained a levy release from the state when they froze my and my family memberâ€™s bank account. She worked tirelessly and diligently and never gave up. Everything worked out in my favor. I am satisfied and most of my tax liability was eliminated. I would recommend Suzanne Ascher if come across anyone else who is in need. I found Suzanne Ascher to be a competent tax lawyer and a good friend.

Our family just wanted to say that Suzanne Ascher is our CPA for income tax return preparation. She's also been our family's tax and estate planning lawyer for many years. She has been super great and we are all very happy with her work product and performance. She takes the time that is needed to get the job done and really knows her stuff. She's been really, really awesome to deal with and we look forward to working with her for many years to come. We all highly recommend her.

The money I paid to Suzanne Ascher to represent me for my tax matter proved to be an excellent investment. She successfully dealt with the IRS and protected my rights. I appreciate her professionalism and her knowledge. She's a super lawyer!

This is one completely incompetent woman who calls herself a lawyer. She has NEVER given me the courtesy of a return call let alone any type of communication to let me know how my case is progressing. Instead, I had to call upon another lawyer to intervene so that I could get some answers. She made one excuse after another, blaming all the delays on other lawyers, judges and even her personal life. I personally handed her a list of items pertaining to the case in May 2008 and have been asked twice more for the same list. I AM STILL WAITING and it is now going on 2 years! This is disgraceful behavior from a "professional" and I think that she needs to disciplined. She obviously knows nothing about the case for which she was hired.

Ms. Ascher has been handling a thoroughly complex matter for me and my husband for more than two years, and I have received nothing but the most professional and concerned service from her. I have complete faith and trust in her abilities and her knowledge, and highly recommend her to anyone.

I recently used Miss Ascher's services. I had a big tax problem with the IRS. They wanted to take my bank account for back taxes. Miss Ascher handled my problems and was reasonable with her fees. My assets were saved and she was able to help reduce my tax debt. She was really nice and calmed down my fears and took allot of time to help me. I have a friend with a tax problem and I have recommended her to him. Thanks Miss Ascher.
