I have known Phil Smith for over 10 years. During that period, he has represented me in a number of tax and business related matters. He has successfully exceeded my expectations in each matter. He continually keeps me informed and outlines potential pitfalls. Last month he positively resolved a very complicated bankruptcy and IRS tax matter in record time! I highly recommend Phil for business related tax challenges, especially complex in nature.

I retained Mr. Smith for a personal litigation matter after he was recommended to me by one of his former & satisfied clients. Mr. Smith provided me with sound legal advice, represented me through the entire litigation matter for a flat fee, and provided me with periodic updates as to the status of the case which was settled to my satisfaction.
I now am a satisfied client of his and would like to highly recommend Mr. Smith as an attorney who I learned to trust to follow through and keep his word.

He did it again! Phil Smith conquered the IRS and had my audit eliminated. I had limited resources and Phil, in the matter of a few targeted phone calls, found the correct supervisor to get timely action and favorable results. His insight and knowledge regarding the policies and procedures of the IRS is unmatched. He was victorious in my battle with the IRS for a third time and I couldn’t be happier. Phil also has worked on previous tax issues of mine (including a previous audit) and has given me expert advise and always has come through with results in my favor. I would recommend him without reservation for ANY tax related issue!
