Peter is licensed to practice law in Michigan and has been admitted to the U.S. Tax Court.  He graduated, magna cum laude and in the top of his class, from W.M.U. Cooley Law School with a J.D. in Transactional Law.    He also received the Distinguished Student Award in the term he graduated.  In 2020, he completed a LL.M. (Masters of Law) in Tax Law there too.

He has a few scholarly papers that have been published: one on tax (Comment on Limitations Periods and Return-Preparer Fraud, 36 W. Mich. U. T.M. Cooley L. Rev. 95) and one on real property (Comment on Golf-course Greens Fees: License fees or land income?, 34 W. Mich. U. T.M. Cooley L. Rev. 159).

Previously, Peter received a M.B.A. in Business Management from Eastern Michigan University, and he received a Graduate Degree in Banking from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  And, following in a family tradition, he also graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, with two B.A.s:  English Literature and Medieval History.

In his first career, he was a banker.  For over twenty years, he worked in banks and credit unions in Michigan and Indiana.  During this time, he worked in nearly every area within a financial institution (from a teller to an executive and everything in between).  From this career experience, Peter has learned how to listen to clients and hear their needs, to create a custom plan to resolve their issues, and to implement plans effectively.

Senior Level Underwriter
I was in the market to buy a house and because 2021 was a buyer's market, many were at the mercy of the sellers and agent. I was all set to purchase a home (at an inflated price of course ) when I noticed that my ageant slipped in a substantial undisclosed fee on my final loan estimate. I discovered the fee and asked that it be removed. The ageant refused so I backed out of the deal. I subsequently contacted Attorney Peter J Mancini and for a very small incremental fee, he gave me some excellent advise as to how I could possibly recover my EMD. He patiently listened as I explained all of the details. He then took a substantial amount of time to explain all of the PRO'S and CON'S of my case and he did this in a very kind and empathetic way. He was also extremely articulate so I left the conversation with no doubt as to how to proceed. Needless to say, I followed his advise, took the case to small claims court and won the case. Thank you so much Peter J Mancini!!

A Breath of Fresh Air
My family was in need of a tax attorney to help us in regards to foreign account disclosure. After coming off a terrible experience with an attorney who was non-transparent and compensated based on the rather arbitrary process of hourly billing - we decided we needed to find a tax attorney who prioritized transparency in billing in addition to competency, and we found that with Peter Mancini and PureTax Resolution. To sum our experience up in one word - Compassion! In the most trying of circumstances, we found Peter to be not only comforting in his guidance and direction, but knowledgeable, intelligent, factual and thoroughly efficient. Unlike our prior experience, we never felt rushed and Peter always took the time to explain things in a way that we could understand. He would listen and learn about all the details of our rather complex tax problem. HIs whole demeanor was slow and steady assuring us that we were in good hands. From an execution standpoint, it was clear Peter was up-to-date on the ever changing legal landscape. He was able to identify a change in law that occurred during our time working together, that would lead to us altering our strategy and result in SIGNIFICANT tax savings to us, simply because Peter was informed on the changing legal landscape. From a tactical and bottom-line financial standpoint for us, this was a very important moment and we are very grateful that he caught it. This is a man who commands his field and with a touch of elegance to boot! Thank you Peter for your guidance.

Dual citizenship & IRS tax obligations.
Dual citizenship can add complexity to your IRS tax obligations. IRS International tax rules change occasionally. Your best resource is an International tax attorney like Peter Mancini Esq. Peter has written a detailed letter to IRS on my behalf to waive penalties on my foreign accounts. I was not aware of an IRS International FBAR rule which in 2012 became a reporting requirement. My CPA did not practice International tax. He did not ask me probing questions about my income stream which I submitted and disclosed fully. He knew of my foreign income but did not investigate the foreign accounts rules. Peter Mancini Esq. and his accounting team brought my past incorrect tax returns into compliance with IRS International rules on Foreign accounts. I am relieved that Peter’s excellent defense on my behalf gives me peace of mind. Tuula

Peter Mancini Evaluation
I had a problem with the IRS due equally to my mistake and a misreading by the IRS. I needed a lawyer who had requisite experience with this kind of problem and since I had never dealt with the IRS was understandably nervous. I found a champion in Peter Mancini! He is very courteous, and competent, and handled this problem quite efficiently AND expeditiously. He is an absolutely outstanding lawyer and a genuinely fine gentleman.

Great Trust and Will Writer
We hired Peter to assist us in drawing up a Will and Trust. He was very careful to take into consideration our financial situation, both present and future, and our wishes. He crafted a trust, powers of attorney, wills, and pet trust for our family. We are very happy with the products, and we feel that we are in a more stable position moving forward into our future.

"My experience with Pete is as a colleague and goes back a couple years. I know him as an experienced negotiator of great skill. In reality that skill is what you want your representative to possess as 99% of legal conflicts are resolved without a Court's decision; through negotiation. In this capacity he is knowledgeable, insightful, intuitive, innovative, and tenacious. Exactly the lawyer you need!"
