Following receipt of the degrees of Bachelor of Science in Accounting (Cum Laude) and Juris Doctor (Cum Laude) from Brigham Young University, I received a Masters of Law in Taxation from Denver University School of Law.

I passed the CPA exam in 1977 & worked as a tax accountant for Deloitte & Touche. I offer considerable experience in planning, implementing, and analyzing sophisticated estate and asset protection strategies.

I’m a very practical, customer-centric individual, and I pride myself on maximizing tax benefits & estate planning strategies for my clients. I have worked on thousands of cases over the years, and I’ll give you the personal attention you need.

BEST CREDIT SPECIALIST
I had eviction removed from my credit report, and I still can’t believe PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST raise my credit score to 804 excellent score within few days. He also helps me apply for PPP loan with the sum of $35k which reflect in my bank account with a low interest rate. I saw a lot of good reviews about his works and he would respond swiftly.

Outstanding job! Thorough, patient, and experienced attorney!
It was a bit of a challenge initially to find an attorney to service our Estate and Trust needs in Henderson. We are grateful to have found Mark Dodds. He is very thorough, patient, courteous, and Mark is a well-seasoned, experienced attorney. He took the time to explain all aspects of our Trust and provided great advice for our next steps, and our options with the Estate. It was a pleasure to meet with Mark, and he is a pleasure to work with. My family and I highly recommend Mark Dodds and his firm. Thank you!!

Estate Planning
Mr. Dodds was very friendly and thorough. We created an estate plan with trusts that will simplify access to assets for my children. Mr. Dodds explained all the details carefully to be sure we understood.

Trust Updates
We like the fact that Mark fully listened to our needs in updating our Trust since we relocated to Nevada from another state. He clearly explained what needed to be updated and what we did not have to update given the differences in some of the Nevada trust laws as compared to the state where we previously lived.
