About Beverly

Learn Beverly’s areas of practice.

Being an attorney has given Beverly Winstead the opportunity to change so many of her clients' lives for the better by solving their personal and business tax issues. From negotiating with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) a settlement that is comfortable for a client to getting IRS to release a lien or levy, the favorite part of her tax practice has always been the peace she gives to her clients when she tells them that their debt has been significantly reduced or their tax issues have been resolved.


Her decision to practice law was a natural fit because of her competitive spirit. She went to college on an athletic scholarship at Bowie State University (BSU) and received numerous honors, such as being selected to All-Conference, All- Regional, and All-Tournament teams during her tenure. To date she has been the only woman in the history of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) to win three championships.


She graduated from BSU with a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in finance. After finishing her undergraduate studies she worked for local government doing budgeting and teaching entrepreneurial skills. However, she was never satisfied with working for local government because she felt that she had a deeper calling. Her deep desire to help people sent her to the University of Maryland, School of Law. While at the University of Maryland she learned skills necessary to be an effective advocate.


Just as she did on the women's basketball team at Bowie State where she made CIAA history and was honored as the MVP of various tournaments, she always puts on a winner's attitude for her clients. She is excited to use her skills that she learned while playing sports, to be the MVP that resolves her client's problems.


Attorney Beverly Winstead also serves as the Clinical Law Instructor for the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic at the University of Maryland, School of Law.

Amazing Results!!! (Hire Her Immediately)
Ms. Winstead was absolutely outstanding to work with! I was faced with an overwhelming tax debt that I never thought i could resolve. I had contacted several attorneys before hiring Ms Winstead to handle my case but no one, besides her, seemed to have a plan to address the unique circumstances of my case. Everyone that I had previously spoke with had a generic solution that they were going to apply instead of understanding all of the intricacies and solving to them. From our initial conversation I felt that she was going to take the time to fully understand my case and devise a plan that best suited my situation. When I hired Beverly my accounts had been seized and my paychecks were being garnished. Ms Winstead worked to stop those aggressive actions and began to work with my case officer on my behalf to resolve my case. There were complications during the process and my case officer was very rigid and didn't seem to want to negotiate any terms other than the maximum that he could impose. Beverly worked diligently to find terms that satisfied the IRS and fit my circumstances. My case is now closed and i am so grateful for her services. I highly recommend her\ to anyone reading this review.

Excellent representation
I hired Ms. Winstead after dealing with two big companies that were advertised on TV who did nothing but take my money. Ms. Winstead got my case closed with a very aggressive IRS officer with the IRS because she actually does her job and doesn't just take your money like the big companies do. I would highly recommend that you use her services if you are having IRS problems.

Great attitude, great results!
Ms Winstead was a pleasure to work with. She helped obtain an offer-in-compromise that greatly reduced my tax debt. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of a great tax attorney.

Outstanding service, dedicated and caring attorney!
Would highly recommend and have recommended Ms Winstead for your Tax and accounting needs. There's nothing better than the feel of lifted burdens when IRS says you owe them thousands and Ms Winstead does her magic and your bill is reduced to $500.00! My family and friends referred, have all highly agreed. I think you will too.
