Honest and Trustworthy
Frank was very honest and helpful. He always kept me on top of the situation with constant updates and made me feel like my case was important to him. Frank worked diligently to get me answers. He is a good listener and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend Frank Podesta.

The Besta is Podesta!
Mr Podesta was an amazing asset in my case vs the IRS. He was on things within 6 hours of receiving needed paperwork and had me in NO PAY status within two weeks. He also would call me with updates during evening hours. His mentality was to get the job done, and get the right settlement for his cllient. He also performed his services for a tad over 50% of his initial retainer, try finding that in an attorney these days...

Very Solid Tax Advocate
Frank is very personable and easy to work with. My IRS issues required a consistent advocate to protect me from an overly zealous revenue officer, and I felt well represented. He was patient and explained things to me when I had questions. After many obstacles we were ultimately successful thanks to Frank's perseverance. The fees were more than reasonable for the service I received. I would definitely use Frank again and definitely recommend him.
