Responsive and Knowledgeable
My cpa referred me to an attorney for my tax problems and he only doubled and tripled the problem by sending letters to the wrong places, getting my bank account wiped out, and not showing up for a meeting with my irs agent. Rachel Pappy’s daughter was in my kids class, so one day I finally asked her if she could take a look at my situation. She immediately gave me tons of advice about my situation and what I could expect and she was dead on, even for the things that had already happened that I hadn’t told her about. The very next day I hired her and she took over, and I really don’t think I’ve ever hired a better attorney than Rachel Pappy. I own a business so I’ve hired attorneys in the past, but Rachel really makes you feel like this is the only thing on her mind. She would be the only person anyone should go to for tax help.

Rachel Pappy is second to none
I owed tens of thousands of dollars in taxes for years. I was convinced to call the Polston office when I saw Attorney Rachel Pappy in the parking lot of a Walmart. i didn't recognize who she was and walked behind her from a short distance when a man approached her and asked if she was the attorney from the Polston commercials. She said she was, and I eavesdropped on her conversation with this stranger as he began chatting with her and told her how sick his wife Yolanda was. It was obvious she was just as caring in person as she appears on her commercials. Sometimes you just don't know with commercials if they are real or not, but Rachel didn't know I was listening and I could see she was the real deal even when no one was watching. I had been wanting to take care of my taxes for awhile, so later that day I scheduled an appointment with the Polston office and met with an attorney named Victor who was also very honest. Their office has bent over backwards to take care of me and I am so grateful for that day in the Walmart parking lot. There are a lot of scams out there, but you can believe their commercials. They are who they say they are, and they will do what they say they will do.

The ONLY lawyer to go to in Oklahoma City for tax help
There are two tax law firms who promote themselves heavily in the Oklahoma City area. Rachel is a managing partner at one of them. I chose the WRONG one before I met Rachel. I had a terrible experience at the other firm who claimed to have the "IRS Weapon." When I finally met with Rachel and went through the tax relief experience with her firm, the difference was night and day. Do not call another tax relief firm. Call Rachel for tax relief advice and assistance. Her firm is response, informative, professional and aggressive.

Finest attorney I have ever met
Over the years I have needed attorneys for various help, but each attorney I hired treated me like i was a hassle instead of their client, all but Rachel Pappy. She is kind and I would regularly get emails from her at 7 pm or 10 pm demonstrating what a hard worker she is and how she takes on the personal burden of your case. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
