After getting an audit notice from the IRS I googled tax attorneys and found David. I called him and he immediately impressed me with his expert advice and confident approach. After meeting with him the next day, my wife and I were 100% certain that we choose the right man for the job.
My audit was handled via mail and the dreaded face to face in person probing was avoided. Without David, we would have been in a much different position.
He follows up to your requests quickly and professionally, which is very
important in my book. I am certain it was his experience and confidence in dealing with our auditor that kept us out of the IRS building.
I strongly recommend him, in fact he is our new tax preparer, he promised to keep us out of trouble from now on.

I came to Dave and his associates with a complex issue regarding a non-profit. Others may have looked at it as hopeless. They recognized our service to the community, and committed to help us resolve our tax problem. I found Dave and his associates to be knowledgeable, kind and hardworking people that know tax law inside and out. They were very sensitive to our request to find a solution so that we could continue to help the community. With their assistance, we were able to immediately open the channels of communication and start on the path to resolution of the tax issue. I am immensely grateful for thier help.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Dave is both a superb tax lawyer and an outstanding CPA. He provides highly competent services relating to tax and tax law, including issues relating to tax compliance, audit representation, and tax transactions. I strongly recommend him.
Daniel Hales, Estate planning Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
David brings a unique set of qualifications to his legal practice as a tax attorney. His considerable experience as a CPA lends itself perfectly to his law practice, and allows him to tackle some of the toughest, most complex tax problems facing clients in a legal setting. David is friendly, great with clients, and works diligently to serve his clients' interests. I can strongly recommend David Klasing as an experienced, dedictated, effective tax and estate planning attorney.
