Wow! Unbelievable!
So nice and sincere. She spent a half hour on the phone giving advice that I know any other lawyer would have charged me for. Refreshing to know there are still great people out there that care.

If you work with Ashley you will be surprised at how pleasant and knowledgeable she is. But what I liked the most about her is that whenever she asked me for something she always gave me plenty of time to gather the information she needed. She made everything non STRESSFUL which is a real plus. I highly recommend her, Don't go anywhere else!

TAX Legal
Ashley during our first phone conversation, before I hired her, told me what she can do for me based on my IRS situation and did absolutely what she said after I hired her to handle my case. All i can say is she is the BEST attorney i came upon and i had tried 4 others that failed. She's the BEST

I was very impressed with their services. I was taken care of in the best possible way, very knowledgeable, professional, and would always keep me updated throughout the process. Also, so happy with the results. Mary

Tax problems
I can not say enough about Ashley. She has been instrumental in changing my life. I came to her and her firm with 15+ years of un-filed and unpaid taxes. I had been hiding from this huge problem for so long it had shaped my life and held me back in countless ways. Ashley and her firm took complete control of my situation and within six months I had a settlement with the IRS for only $1,500. I am now free and clear of this problem for ever. Ashley was so great thru the whole process. I can't thank her enough. What a professional she is.

Legal Services Tax Law / Ashley Brooke Rentz
Ms. Ashley Rentz was our key contact at the legal firm we employed to handle our recent tax case, and we worked with her on a weekly and sometimes daily basis over the course of the past year. We found her be very knowledgeable and extremely helpful on all aspects of our case. She was very responsive and consistent in her communications and a pleasure to work with. We had great confidence at all times that our case was receiving the highest level of attention and diligence. Ms. Rentz was unfailing positive and pleasant, and provided us with a ongoing comfort level throughout the case. We would highly recommend Ms. Rentz to anyone in need of legal services.

Tax Attorney | Jul 02
Relationship: Co-worker
"I worked with Ashley for several years and directly observed her work product, relationship with clients, and ethics. Ashley consistently produced top quality work. She used her LLM in Tax and experience at a tax law firm to tackle the most difficult tax, business and real estate questions. She was always accessible and patient with her clients. She quickly returned their calls and always took the time to explain what was going on in their case. Tax and corporate law can be notoriously difficult to understand, especially for a client who has expertise in an unrelated field. Ashley never made clients feel uncomfortable for asking a question and was willing to explain something multiple times to ensure the client understood what was happening. She felt that a well-informed client was a happy client. Above all, Ashley is an ethical attorney. She is always honest and direct with her clients, co-workers and peers in the community. I highly recommend her!"
