Lisa is simply the best. I found her on Avvo to help me navigate through a complex IRS situation. My first contact with her was amazing, she is so very nice and professional. The communication and support was exceptional, I could not have asked for anything better. She provided me with absolutely sound advise that later turned out exactly how she anticipated saving me thousands of dollars. I'm so grateful for her representation. She is hard worker and great communicator providing me updates late in the day and weekends. She is extremely intelligent and very knowledgable. There is nobody else I would ever use then Lisa for future tax law advise.

I hired Lisa and her firm to address a complex tax situation with the IRS in which the IRS was claiming I owed them >$250K. Lisa and her team quickly cut through the red-tape that is ever present whenever one interacts with the IRS. Lisa was successful in petitioning the IRS to review their agent's action and the IRS quickly (OK, quickly for a government agency!) came back and agreed with Lisa's well written appeals letter that the IRS agent was indeed incorrect in their ruling that I owed an additional >$250K in taxes.
Of course there was lots of back and forth between Lisa and myself and subsequently between Lisa and the IRS on this matter but Lisa was able to very quickly identify the key items that the IRS needed to see from my past records in order to adequately support my case. Lisa's ability to do this saved me an immense amount of time in terms of assembling the supporting documents Lisa required to support all the claims she made in her appeals letter to the IRS.
The bottom line is I was very satisfied with Lisa and her firm not only because of the outcome of my case but more importantly because of the outstanding job Lisa and her firm did in communicating with me throughout the entire process, the efficient way in which they used my time, the efficient and effective way in which they conducted their work which resulted in a cost effective legal bill, and Lisa's ability to take the emotion out of the situation and simply boil complex matters down to a series of facts that all parties could easily understand.
I have had the opportunity throughout my business career as a senior executive to retain a wide variety of different professionals/professional firms (lawyers, CPAs, Investment Bankers, etc) and I would rank Lisa and her firm in my top 5 all-time (out of the >50 firms I've engaged during my personal and professional career).

Lisa was professional and competent with our matters. Her responsiveness was exceeded my expectations and the results of the case were very satisfactory. If I would describe Lisa in three words, it would be accountable, results driven, and enthusiastic. Lisa clearly knew what she was responsible fore, she had the skills, knowledge, and sufficient influence to carry out her responsibilities. She maintained her focus on priorities and accurately predicted the anticipated consequences of our case. Lisa's deeply rooted enthusiasm for detailed worked gave me a sense of confidence that we selected the right person to handle the job. Thanks, Lisa!

Lisa was able to help me with a Casualty and Theft Loss disallowance where my client was assessed $60,000 in taxes and penalties. My client was extremely happy and relieved that the tax lien was lifted and balance reduced to nothing. Lisa was very personable, informative, and responded in a timely manner. We are very grateful for her assistance.

Lisa did an amazing job handling my OIC with the IRS. From beginning to end she and Ron helped to end many years of stress and frustration I was having with the IRS. Long story short, I went from dealing with two different services and 5 years of wage garnishments, tax levies and a denied OIC to finding Lisa and my whole case being settle with an Acceptance letter from the IRS in less than 8 months!! Thank you again!!

Lisa Barnett was amazing to sum it up! She was great from the moment I met her. She listened and understood exactly what I was looking for as a final outcome for my case. She explained everything step by step before I signed the contract to have her and the firm that she works for represent me. It took me all of seconds after hearing her plan as to what she would do to decide that she and her firm were the best choice! Once the case got started she always returned my phone calls if not took them when I called and also returned every email with clear and concise answers. She was extremely dedicated in helping me resolve my legal matter with the IRS with amazing results! I was sure that I was never going to get resolve to my tax issues and Lisa delivered what she had promised. The OIC was submitted to the IRS September 2011 and accepted February 2012 with our original offer. Although every case will differ from mine I am extremely confident that Lisa will always strive to deliver what the client is looking for while being realistic as to what can be accomplished.

Attorney Lisa Barnett did an incredible job negotiating an Offer In Compromise for me with the IRS.
She was caring and kind and provided a worry free experience in dealing with the IRS. I cant say enough about the fantastic job she did.
Please feel free to contact me for any additional information .

I am entirely satisfied with the services provided by Lisa and Ronnie. Lisa was always easy to reach and quick to get back to me. She continued to be available to answer my quick questions about my IRS case without nickel-and-diming me; this was enormously appreciated.
Most importantly, she helped me reach a satisfactory resolution to my case.
I would without reservation recommend Lisa and the firm of Ronson Shamoun to anyone facing legal hassles with the IRS. I only wish that I had turned to them a lot sooner.

In todays world it is very hard to find a person or company that is very dedicated to their profession and company they represent. Lisa is one of those people. She works for the law ferm of Ronson Shamoun. My wife and I had a very long on going problem with the IRS. after retaining their service to handle our problem Lisa was our main attorney and the surberb and excellant service she provided us got our problem with the IRS resolved with no monies owed to the IRS. The whole law ferm was outstanding and very caring. I hope I never need their service again(with IRS) problems) however if I ever do or any friends need their service I will srtongly recommend them. She helped remove a big load off our shoulders. Thanks so much LISA. and tell Ronnie thank you also, and I'll keep in touch with you.
