    • I recommend Jonathan Decatorsmith.
    • I hired Jonathan more than 3 years ago.
    • Jonathan handled my Tax matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I'd spent years trying to resolve IRS/State tax payments and penalties. Three years ago, I began to work with Jon,and he's demonstrated both the experience and insight required to resolve these situations. He'll file my OIC shortly, and I look forward to his assistance in the future with credit repair, release of tax liens.

    • I recommend Jonathan Decatorsmith.
    • I hired Jonathan 1-3 years ago.
    • Jonathan handled my Tax matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    My friend died and named me executor of her estate. I had never done this before. The accountant I saw to file her taxes advised me that I could pay medical bills before I paid Becky's taxes. That seemed off to me, but I foolishly listened to him and paid a few doctors (she left a TINY estate - about $2000 - and owed the Feds $3500 and doctors about 20,000). The accountant was wrong and the IRS came after ME - saying I had paid medical bills knowing taxes were due and now I was personally liable. Jon took the case for me and handled it very professionally. He was quite organized - knew exactly the documents he needed upfront, got to the IRS immediately, kept me informed of the progress and got me off the hook. My only regret is that I went to the accountant first rather than seeking Jon's counsel. I HIGHLY recommend him. He's intelligent, knowledgeable, organized, communicative - and kind. The whole situation was extremely distressful for me and reassured me and took positive action. I will recommend him whenver possible!

    My case involved a criminal conviction for taxes so it was a more involved , and time consuming. I have been notified and kept up on all aspects of the case. I am very pleased with the way it is being handled. Everything is throughly explained in a way that I can understand. I would highly reccomend Jon in any legal matter that you may have.

    I am known to dislike attorneys in general since they usually work towards using your retainer. But not this one.
    Mr Decatorsmith has been my attorney for over 5 years now on a very complex tax matter.He has been honest with my chances. He ie very reasonable with costs. He has asked me to call his cell phone on Saturdays, since I usually get worried when I get IRS mail on Saturday. Mr Decatorsmith is competent and is also a very good human being.
