Tyler is a true expert in all things tax. He is a master of the subject and has a unique skill for communicating these complicated issues, whether that be to a judge, IRS agent, or a client. I highly recommend Tyler DeWitt for any legal need that is even slightly tax-related. Tyler is among the best lawyers in the USA.

I had what I thought was a complicated question, and Tyler walked me through it easily and quickly. He was personable and knowledgeable, knew exactly what I was talking about, and handled my situation with diplomacy and tact. I would definitely call Tyler again for help with tax needs and would recommend him to anyone who has need of tax information. Also a shout out to Tammy, who initially took my call. She was friendly and professional.

Tyler DeWitt the young Perry Mason!
I would express that Tyler DeWitt is as smart, charming, and charismatic as you can imagine an attorney should be. He was very impressive with his strategic methods to resolve the matter in a timely and resourceful manner. Mr DeWitt is young but is knowledgeable in his profession and will give you more than 100% effort. Let me say he is my counsel for life and would recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance. Thanks Tyler, Coach Mark

Extremely knowledgeable and easy to understand tax attorney
I was facing a complex tax issue and needed guidance from an attorney. I reached out to Tyler and was completely blown away. Don't let his young appearance fool you, he has knowledge and experience well beyond his years.....he made my issue easy to understand and made sure I was completely comfortable moving forward. He and his amazing staff kept in contact with me throughout the entire process, and my case was handled to my complete satisfaction. The IRS is a large, complicated, confusing entity and yet Tyler and his staff know every rule, statute, regulation, etc., required to get you a fair result.

Professional, competent and masterful!
On a recommendation from a friend, my wife and I visited Monypeny and Associates to resolve our long-standing, complicated and seemingly hopeless IRS situation. We had already tried one of those nationally advertised tax resolution businesses we heard on the radio and ended up with a still-unresolved tax problem and a several thousand dollar invoice. Needless to say, we were skeptical. From the time we walked in the door, we knew we were in good hands. They were pleasant, thorough and demonstrated a tremendous knowledge of tax and law. What my wife and I thought was complicated and hopeless, they breezed through and RESOLVED. And in our case, it was significantly cheaper than the big-time tax folks we had hired before. My family and I are so relieved and so thankful for David Monypeny and staff, and especially Tyler DeWitt, who worked with us hand in hand, communicated clearly and led us to a very successful and happy conclusion. Thanks to Tyler and everyone we worked with, we are once again FREE to live our lives without the burden of the IRA looming like an executioner over our heads!
