Direct and Resourceful
Over the span of the last six years, David has been of great value to me and my business. He is extremely knowledgeable and competent, as well as an excellent guide in decision making. More so, he is a direct and trusted advisor with excellent communication skills who is a great resource and problem solver. I have referred him strongly to others and will continue to do so.

I give David the highest recommendation. My case was very difficult and took several years to resolve. But David provided great counsel, worked extremely hard and in the end my case was settled with a very favorable offer in compromise. Thank you David!

IRS audit
David represented our Company and also personally during an IRS audit. He immediately relieved the IRS thumb on your back and resolved all audit issues. We would recommend David on anything needed for tax/IRS concerns.

Excellent Tax Attorney
I appreciate David. He helps you feel at ease while not over-promising. It is important to look at each case fairly and realistically. David is a wonderful blend of knowledge and caring.

Great Experience
I hired Dave a few years back to help me with a difficult tax situation that had a significant impact on my life financially and emotionally. I had met with a number of tax attorneys before Dave and was not given any real direction or answers that could I could take action on regarding my situation. When I met with Dave, I know after our first consultation that I wanted to hire him. It was one of the best decisions I could have made at the time. Dave worked with the IRS on my behalf and saved me a significant amount of time, money and stress and in the long run helped me get a permanent resolution to a tax lien that I thought was going to be in my life for a very long time, and would have been had I not had Dave's help. I would recommend Dave fully for any situation that requires his expertise. He is honest, professional and fair and knows what he is doing.

IRS Audit
Nobody likes to get that letter in the mail regarding an IRS tax audit. Mr Sprecace was extremely professional and well informed. Mr Sprecace reduced the stress of an audit and had our best interest in mind until the case was closed. We were very pleased with the outcome of our case. I am very thankful that we found him and hired him for his services.

Knowledgeable and Responsive
I have had to deal with several Lawyers in the last few years due to divorce and subsequent tax issues. I was fortunate enough to come across David via a recommendation of another attorney who wasn’t best suited to assist me. David got back to me quickly after I contacted him, reviewed my situation, and made realistic recommendations as well as handled the complexities of dealing with tax collections. I feel fortunate to have him on my side as he really put my mind at ease and I felt like my situation was being handled. I would also say his rates and billing are very reasonable.

Peace of Mind
I've had the privilege of using David's services on multiple occasions, each time my issues were handled promptly, professionally, and exceeded my expectations. I find it rare that an attorney is so focused on open communication, setting clear expectations, maintaining the highest level of integrity, and still manages to operate so effectively and efficiently within those parameters. David is a trusted and respected professional, his expertise has been integral to my overall business and personal success. If you're searching for professional advice or an experienced litigator, contacting David is certainly a call you should make, you'll be happy you did. Knowing that he is looking out for my needs and the welfare of my organization gives me the peace of mind a trusted professional should.

Sincere
I called David just before 5pm on a Friday afternoon and he not only answered personally, but took the time to hear my situation right there on the phone. Gave me some great advice and I will more than likely be following up for representation. If he works that hard and genuine to help listen and give me a few pointers over the phone, I can confidently expect hard work.

Thank you
David is a blessing for me. I am very pleased with the work he has done and continue to do for me with my litigation. It is very difficult to fight against a family member, but I am very happy that he is in my corner.

The "Best of the Best"
I can't say enough good things about David A. Sprecace. If you're having a problem with a tax matter, you should call him, now! He got to the bottom of my situation quickly and economically and got me back into compliance. He has integrity and a high level of skill and expertise. You know how it is... You have a problem; you're stressed out; you're not sure what to do. After Dave took my case I felt better right away. I couldn't believe how quickly everything was resolved. He really knows how to work well with the IRS. I would and do recommend him often. He is really good at his job and very professional and pleasant to work with.
