My Go To For Anything I Need.
Constantine helped me create my LLC and filed all the documents that needed to be done. He was knowledgeable at every turn of the process. As a first time business owner I didn't create my LLC for a long time because i was scared of the process and Constantine made sure that i knew exactly what was happening and i never felt in the dark. Constantine is also my go to for my taxes both for my business and personal. He educates me on every little detail and ensures I file on time and correctly. He takes the time to explain to me the differences in the credits and deductions and helps me understand why I should claim certain ones and not others. I now have Constantine doing my taxes and my fathers taxes and will be sending any other friends or family to him for his expertise.

Tax prep and financial services
Costa has been handling my affairs for years. He's never showed away from a challenge and provided invaluable insight to help me navigate through some complicated issues. I've yet to find fault with any of the services he has performed for my business and family. I recommend him to associates as often as circumstance allows. I'm sure he will run out of bandwidth at some point, but see no end in sight. He has a lot of energy and a seemingly limitless capacity. He sees and has created opportunities that have contributed to the quality of a surprising number of facets of my life. I truly feel he's "got my back". If you can find a better value than that, well... Don't let it get away.

Tax law guru, especially investment real estate
Costa Anestos knows the answers to the most esoteric tax questions. I consult him early in the year each year to learn strategies that save thousands on my taxes. My husband and I married recently, both with separate property. Costa answered our questions thoroughly and strategically. He knows oil and gas rights as well. Recently I followed his advice for a complex 1031 exchange of rural property inherited at different years. I completely deferred my capital gains. No other tax attorney would even touch my complex questions. He has particular expertise in investment real estate. As a real estate agent I would not hesitate to recommend him to my clients when considering the tax implications of investment property.

Highly Recommended!
The Adams and Anestos Law Firm has been instrumental with helping me build my business. They have written several contracts/agreements that clearly defined the scope of my particular business matter. Each contract/agreement has been accepted by the other parties counsel without any hesitation. The service level is personal and extremely professional!
