Our consultation was thorough and extremely helpful to us. One of our attorneys, Diana Tarnopolskaya, contacted us immediately after receiving the referral to request background documents relevant to our IRS notice. Her intent was to prepare a response in advance of our meeting several days later. The attorneys demonstrated a genuine interest in our case and devoted the time that was necessary in excess of our 30-minute window for us to prepare a response. This included presentation of a printed copy of a relevant IRS court decision, copies of the documents that we might expect from the IRS contingent upon the success of our response, and an outline of the steps involved in an IRS decision with suggestions on how to respond at each step. We were fortunate to benefit from the deep knowledge and experience that Mr. James Hastings demonstrated in dealing with the IRS. Perhaps more importantly, we were fortunate to benefit from the willingness that Diana and James demonstrated to devote their time and effort on our behalf.

Mr. Hastings knew his stuff, was resourceful and even fun to work with (unique for a lawyer). He has a strong moral compass and was always fair with billing his time.

I have referred several clients to Jim and I will continue as they come up. Jim's knowledge and ability to work with high level tax issues is a huge help to my practice. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
