Impressive Attorney
Recently, I called Ms. Beary after hours and was astounded that she took my call, asked questions and told me she would get back to me later that evening. Sure enough within 3 hours, Ms. Beary called me back. I am grateful for her prompt and very helpful response. She certainly boosted my confidence and opinion of attorneys. I will definitely refer her to anyone needing her expertise and will seek her assistance should the need arise.

Chapter 13 Help
I had a lawyer when I first filed Chapter 13. That lawyer got suspended in the state of AZ and did not inform me. I contacted Patricia through this website and heard from her within 4 hours. She had already spent time on my case on her own. I needed more advise for my case, so I asked her to consult with me and she made it very affordable for me to do so. She was always returned my emails, texts and phone calls within the same day. If I ever need another attorney, Patricia is the one I will call first.

Very Appreciative
I called Patricia and to my surprise she answered the phone herself. Again to my surprise she started to ask me questions to learn my situation. In the past, every lawyer wanted a fee before even hearing my story. Patricia asked me questions and based on my answers, she was able to direct me to the write person for my situation. She probably saved me hundreds by just being kind and thoughtful. THANK YOU PATRICIA!

Tax Issue
I contacted Ms. Beary for information regarding a tax matter. She was very helpful in ruling out unnecessary legal action at the time. I appreciate and am grateful for her honesty and will certainly have no reservations in calling her for necessary legal advice and action in the future.

Tax Lawyer
I highly recommend and endorse Patricia Beary to anyone who is experiencing a need in tax management. She is not only highly knowledgeable, intelligent and competent but is also kind, responsive and sensitive to her client needs. > I had an income tax liability of approximately $100,000. Patricia Beary came to my aid after I received a notice from IRS that my installment agreement with the IRS was being terminated. The IRS was going to levy. Patricia Beary listened to my story and immediately went to work. She submitted a new request for installment agreement and appealed the termination of the old installment agreement. Throughout this process Trish met with me in person several times, presented me with various options to successfully resolve all problems and helped me select the best solution. She worked with me to qualify for chapter 7 bankruptcy so that I could discharge the taxes instead of having to pay under a new installment agreement. Trish advised me about how to restructure my finances before filing for bankruptcy. Because of her expertise, care and concern I have been able to not only resolve the tax issues but also have a much better financial future. I recommend Patricia Beary without reservation.

Great Tax Attorney
Pat was great, I had a hughe tax liability (upwards of 5 Million)which she was able to have reduced and a payment plan implemented. Then came a business tax audit, once again she was fantastic and so well prepared that the IRS did not change the filings. I would highly recomend Pat as a tax attorney, she brings to the table a wealth of experience and knowledge. Thank you Pat.

Innocent Spouse Tax Relief Granted!
In 2009 I began getting letters from IRS that I owed 65,000 in back taxes and penalties for 2001, 2002 and 2005. I had just gotten a divorce and had been told by my ex-husband (a professional accountant) that all of our taxes were paid. IRS kept my tax refund from that year. I wrote letters on my own to file an Innocent Spouse claim and 18 months later IRS was still demanding payment. I hired Ms. Beary in the summer of 2010. She worked tirelessly on my appeal, writing letters and researching case law, until she found a case that mirrored mine closely enough that her argument prevailed. After two years of her efforts, I just received notice from IRS last month that I have been relieved of the tax debt and all penalties and interest. I cannot thank Patricia enough for her tireless research on my behalf and wholeheartedly recommend her for any tax problem that requires expertise and dedication. She is the right lawyer for the job!

Great Job with IRS Audit
We had a federal tax audit and bill for + $600,000. Patricia Beary worked on our case diligently and for several years and we finally ended up settling for $1000. She was very responsive to our questions and extremely knowledgeable about IRS procedures. I would definitely retain her servces again and do recommend her to others who need an attorney for tax purposes.
