Business Acquisition SUPERSTAR!
Gerrard and Amal with Aventus Law Group was amazing to work with for my recent small business acquisition. They were highly skilled, professional, and extremely patient in guiding me through the process as a first-time buyer. Not only did they facilitate a smooth closing, but their connections with financing professionals saved our deal! Thanks to their expertise and network, I had the pleasure of working with kind financing professionals who made the entire journey seamless. I wholeheartedly recommend Aventus Law Group to anyone seeking top-notch legal support for their business ventures.

Top Notch
My experience working with Aventus Law Group, Gerrard Grant was exceptional. We utilized their services to obtain our 501(c)3 non-profit status for our company. They were professional, timely, and followed through with what they said they would do. I highly recommend their services.

I felt like I had a true advocate
I was contacted at the end of 2021 by the Florida DOR with an intent to audit for sales and use tax. Although I had felt fairly confident in my tracking and remittance, I was completely overwhelmed by the requests from the DOR for information and knew I needed help from someone with experience in both sales tax usage and law. I found Mr. Grant through a colleague's referral and was instantly put at ease with his knowledge and understanding of my situation. Gerrard made the process so much easier than I could have imagined. I truly felt like I had someone in my corner advocating for me every step of the way. He allowed me to focus on running my business while he handled the endless requests, emails and phone calls from the DOR. My communication with Gerrard and his firm was always very timely, organized and - honestly - enjoyable. He would even email me in the middle of conference calls with the DOR just to tell me I was doing a great job. I expected a lot less from a lawyer (to be completely honest) and got so much more. In the end, my audit took just over 9 months and I don't regret a single minute of having Gerrard on my side for it. He truly stood up for me, believed in me and fought for me. I would recommend Gerrard to anyone without question!

Outstanding lawyer that got us through a difficult situation
Our family business was in a tough situation, first facing legal charges and finally buying out the other owner. Gerrard kept us calm and walked us through everything step by step so we were fully in the loop throughout the process. He genuinely cared for our family and understood everything my family went through in the past and was going through at that time. We will forever be grateful for his unconditional support and professionalism. I highly recommend him in your next business law matters because he is simply the best there is! Thank you so much Gerrard!!!

He promised & boy, he delivered!!!
I was dealing with my late husband's estate case for 2+ years, when my attorney told she couldn't do anything else and advised my lo look for a "bulldog" to fight for my rights. I was recommended Gerrard, and from the moment we met he assured me he would do his best to give closure to the process with the best outcome for me. And boy, he delivered! without going to court and without more unnecessary delays. I will happily recommend him to any one with a estate, trust or any legal family process.

Estate Planning Recommendation
I recently consulted with my attorney, Gerrard Grant, for my estate planning needs. Since the first time we met, I have been impressed by Mr. Grant's estate planning knowledge, his  responsiveness to questions, and the thoroughness of my estate planning documents.  Mr. Grant earned my respect, trust and looked out for my best interests.  He explained everything in detail and made the process of estate planning a learning experience. He is highly efficient, professional, and helpful - giving me peace of mind.  I highly recommed Gerrard Grant for estate planning. I will certainly continue to use his services.

The BEST Lawyer-truly one of a kind!
I could not recommend anyone better. I was referred to Gerrard who came highly recommended by another law firm that did not specialize in the matter I was looking to address. From our initial conversation Gerrard was incredibly knowledgeable, empathetic, and confidently motivated. It was the best decision I could have made! His initiative and diligence, not to mention, the time he took to help me understand each step to our strategy for the desired outcome exceeded all expectations. I was so impressed with his level of communication, attention to detail, and patience throughout the process -all extremely comforting given the difficult and sensitive circumstances. The settlement he achieved for me was beyond favorable in both a timely and cost effective manner. I will forever be grateful to Gerrard Grant and the phenomenal litigation work he does! 10/10 Recommend -If you’re looking I would personally suggest you look no further he is exceptional at what he does.

Excellent Service! Exit Tax Implications - Relocating to Puerto Rico
My family and I decided to relocate to Puerto Rico and start a new business there but we were not sure what the tax implications were with our existing business that we would be leaving open in the mainland United States. Mr. Grant was very knowledgeable about Exit Tax and we retained him to collaborate on assessing our potential tax liabilities after reviewing an appraisal performed on our business. Mr. Grant reviewed the appraisal and prepared a Memorandum detailing our specific situation so we could navigate our transition smoothly and with peace of mind. If you are making a similar move, I highly recommend engaging with a professional like Mr. Grant. Making a big move outside of the 50 states is complicated enough on a personal front, and having professionals taking care of your business needs in the process is priceless!

First time hiring a lawyer, and I'm pleased.
After weeks of searching, I was lucky to find this friendly but highly competent law firm. I needed guidance dealing with the IRS and potential back taxes because I was in the process of amending three years of c-corp filings done incorrectly by my previous accountant. Attorney Gerrard, collaborated with my new CPA and diligently guided me to a significantly better outcome had I not hired him. Highly recommend him and this firm.

International Partner Tax Issue
We were notified by the IRS that the LLC owed a substantial amount in Foreign Partner Tax Withholding in the midst of the Covid Pandemic. The Withholding had been paid, but via another IRS filing method. Mr. Grant contacted the IRS and outlined a path to resolve the error. His expertise and follow-up has proven invaluable in a complicated foreign partner tax matter.

Successful resolution to tax dispute
After a CPA we hired could not settle a tax dispute with the IRS we found another CPA who looked at our file and immediately referred us to Mr. Grant. Mr. Grant took great patience in writing several letters to the IRS and conducting phone calls on our behalf with the IRS, Mr. Grant was successful in the resolution of our claim for the entire amount in dispute plus interest. We are very happy with the professional advice Mr. Grant gave us while presenting our case to the IRS. His patience, persistence and diligence was unwavering. We are very grateful to Mr. Grant for his knowledge of tax law and the kindess shown to us. We would have no hesitancy in hiring Mr. Grant for future representation or in recommending him.

The IRS Audit Report Changes to our 2016 Form 1040
If I have learned anything in my life, it is to hire a great lawyer. Gerrard Grant met with my husband and I after a friend highly recommended Mr. Grant as the attorney to solve our 2016 Form 1040 puzzle. Late in 2018 I realized that my personal replies to all the threatening communication received from the IRS was fruitless. I was frustrated and emotionally exhausted. Plus all of the underpaid tax owed was immediately paid to the Treasury and identified as a mis-calculation by our accountant and due in 2016 Personal Income Tax. Yet the IRS continued to harass and threaten us with underpayment penalties and mounting interest fees. We retained Gerrard Grant to handle our case, and although this situation was unique, his tenacity and skillset navigated his plan through profession contacts, tax courts, appeals, and demonstration of IRS tax code inconsistency. It is now 2021, and Gerrard Grant stood fighting our battle through the audit. There are few taxpayers who come out ahead against the IRS, but soon our struggle will be over. The Department of the Treasury admitted changes to our 2016 Form 1040 resulting in refund. Thank you Mr. Grant.

Our Estate Planning Attorney
There are so many attorneys in Florida, we did not know who to choose. Our financial planner recommended Gerrard. He helped us with our estate planning. He has a very pleasant personality, is communicative, answered all our questions and was flexible in terms of scheduling. We left feeling that we would do business with him again.

Strongly Recommend Gerrard Grant
We hired Gerrard to help us with a complex IRS issue. The complexity was magnified by the pandemic and the closure of many IRS offices. Mr. Grant did far more than fill out forms and wait for answers. He leveraged his personal contacts within the IRS, formulated a game plan, and executed the plan with 100% positive results. I was more than impressed. He did exactly what he said he would do and corrected an injustice for us. We could not possibly be more happy with our choice to work with Gerrard. He will be my one and only call for legal service in the future.
