HIRE JOE
I had some complex federal and state tax issues with several different businesses and needed help working through them. I searched several different firms, met with Joe Pearman and decided to hire him. I worked with Joe over a three-year period getting everything resolved satisfactorily. Joe was realistic, presented several different options and did not paint an unrealistic picture of the potential road forward. The assistance he gave me was very valuable and I do not hesitate to recommend him to other potential clients.

Joe is very candid and direct. We all appreciated working with him and ultimately coming to a successful resolution.

GREAT ATTORNEY
I had some substantial tax issues inside my business and didn’t have any resources or existing relationships to help me resolve the problems. I took a chance, did the almighty search engine gamble, spoke to several large and small firms, made the right decision, and chose Joe Pearman. From the very first meeting, Joe put me at ease. He laid out a very realistic road map with several options on how to go forward. Many other firms painted a too good to be true picture. He set realistic expectations of the process and all of the potential ups and downs that could possibly come my way. Joe’s approach, personal touch, and expertise in these matters helped manage my stress. This allowed me to focus on the business. Joe was very professional and efficient with his time. Everything turned out better than expected. I assume that most people don’t talk about their personal and company tax issues out of fear or embarrassment. I know I didn’t. I don’t how I could ever repay Joe for the work he did for both me and my business and the relationship we have built. I could not be more grateful that I choose Joe and would recommend anyone who not only wants to get their problems resolved, but to be given realistic expectations about the situation, to hire Joe NOW. I consider hiring Joe one of the best decisions I have ever made.

VERY PLEASED
I hired Joseph Pearman to represent me with a tax matter in 2019. Joe was exceptional at explaining the facts of the tax laws and laying out my options in a concise and honest manner. I could not be happier with his representation!
