  • Dayten P. Hanson

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Attorney Powers is one of the top tax attorneys in the state. He is knowlegable and extremely thorough. His background as a CPA gives him additional insights as to how to resolve complicated tax and estate matters. When I needed an attorney for my personal estate plan, I went to Attorney Powers. I consider him to be the best at what he does.

  • Benjamin Patrick Payne

    My partner and I run an individual and business insolvency practice and have worked with attorney Powers on many matters invovling clients facing capital gains, income, sales, and withholding tax issues. We refer all of our clients facing such issues to attorney Powers because we have found him to be the most knowledgable tax pratitioner in the state. Being both an attorney and CPA and being both a business advisor and tax practitioner, attorney Powers is capable of addressing the complex issues that arise at the intersection of business and tax law conversationally. Rarely do I post a question to him that he cannot answer off the top of his head. His walk around knowledge of tax law and accounting issues allows him to assess the key issues, craft solutions, and implement a plan in real time, which leads to cost effective results of the highest quality. Attorney Powers routinely exceeds my expectations.
