I have been self employed for 3 years now. I left working for the government in 2012 to open my own firm. I had zero business background and never had to deal with the in depth tax filings that come with being self employed. That's where Lou came in. When I was feeling overwhelmed and in over my head, Lou swooped in and took control of the situation. He counseled me in my business practices and helped me get organized. When tax time came around he sent me a personalized and detailed organizer that made my part doing my taxes simple and stress free! Then he did his magic and saved me A TON of money in income tax liabilities!!! He knows tax law forward and backward!
I have had several dealing with Lou over the last three years. Any time a question arises in my company I can pick up the phone and Lou is there to give me an answer. He is a very ambitious and intelligent attorney with a passion for his practice area. I can say with confidence that Lou will be my business and tax attorney for many many years to come. I even had him do my loved ones wills and trusts (he can do it all!!!!) ! Anyone looking for help with building or bettering a business or a phenomenal tax attorney, I recommend Louis Wierenga.

Lou is a great resource for assistance in resolving a wide variety of legal matters. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for great client service and effective problem resolution.

Louis was extremely fast and efficient in assisting me with fixing an older 2012 return that I had incorrectly filed. He was able to help me minimize the amount that I owed the IRS saving me quite a bit of money.

Louis has a razor-sharp mind and such an easy command of tax law that you begin to wonder whether there is anything on the subject he doesn't know. I refer friends with tax issues to Louis with complete confidence that they will be in excellent hands. I recommend him highly to anyone in need of a tax expert.
