I am a physician who has practiced in the Seattle area for over 20 years. My wife and I founded a clinic on the eastside in the early 2000s. We specialized in conducting clinical trials but also treated patients in private practice. My wife took on the responsibilities of managing the business while I was responsible for the clinical decisions. In late 2012, my wife suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of a fall in a bathroom at home. What initially presented as a fairly mild concussion evolved into something far more serious, leading to significant distractibility, poor time management, and an inability to complete tasks. What made things worse was consistent reassurances from medical specialists that she was "fine". As a physician and a husband I knew she wasn't "fine" but was unable to find any professionals who agreed with me. And, my wife was in denial that there was anything wrong. To make a long story short we ran into a number of financial difficulties and fell behind with the IRS. I started having my own medical problems as well, mainly due to overwhelming stress. In 2014, I suffered a stroke.
I was eventually referred to Mr Wyman by my CPA. He worked tirelessly on our behalf, helping us with establishing a payment plan for back taxes with IRS and avoiding further actions against us. Several years ago Mr Wyman mentioned the possibility of filing for abatement of penalties and interest with IRS. We had paid well in excess of $100,000 in penalties and interest for several years when both of us had significant medical impairments and were unable to function at a productive level. In fact my wife hasn't worked at all since early 2013.
Several weeks ago we received notification from the IRS that our petition was approved and shortly thereafter the penalties and interest monies were refunded to us.
I can't thank Mr Wyman enough for his steady counsel and consistent professionalism throughout our ordeal. I am convinced the favorable decision by IRS would not have happened had we not hired Mr Wyman as our attorney. He was at all times fair, honest, open, and transparent about his fees and hours he had worked on our case. I have worked with a number of attorneys in my career and can say without hesitation that I have never worked with anyone that was as organized, supportive, and unflappable as Mr Wyman. I rate him 5 out of 5 stars. A real pleasure to work with.

I am an attorney, but no tax attorney. Drew helped me get an approximately $5000 rebate from the IRS after it incorrectly hit me with penalties. I could not have done it on my own - and it was easy to work with Drew. Much appreciated!

I worked with Mr Wyman on an IRS tax court case. As I am on an assignment to work overseas, it makes the situation more complicated. Mr Wyman took care of all the details and we communicated mainly via email. The case was settled successsfully with a great outcome for me. Highly recommend his service.

Drew Wyman is the most unprofessional and incompetent tax attorney I have ever worked with. I hired Drew earlier this year to help with a relatively straightforward time-sensitive tax procedure. Drew estimated completion within 2 months or so. One month after I hired Drew, problems started. Drew went incommunicado for more than 15 days – I made numerous attempts to contact via phone and via email and received no response. Eventually, he replied to my email after I told him that I might have to enlist the help of WA state bar per their recommendation on how to deal with lawyers that don’t respond. Weirdly, he never recognized the fact that he hasn’t been communicating for 15 days even when he responded.
Eventually, he completed part of the work and wanted more time to complete rest of the work. I was okay with that. As the new timeline he committed came close, the same pattern repeated – Drew went incommunicado and eventually responds with a casual declaration that he is going to take few more months since he believed the delay is fine. Effectively, he was going to take 5.5 months to complete the straightforward procedure when he initially promised completion in 2 months. I desperately tried to contact him to explain the urgency but Drew didn’t return any of my phone calls. In all, I must have called Mr. Drew Wyman 40 times in a span of few months and MR. DREW WYMAN DID NOT RETURN ANY OF MY CALLS even though he promptly sent all his bills.
After I fired him, I hired somebody else who finished the whole procedure in less than 1 week. Additionally, comparison of the partial work that was done by Drew with the work product of the new firm showed that Drew’s work was incorrect, as he did not understand the relevant tax procedures and regulations correctly.
Apart from being absolutely unprofessional and irresponsible, Drew is also fairly incompetent both in terms of ‘getting the job done’ and in terms of basic knowledge of tax code.

Drew has been my tax attorney for 4 years. He has helped me navigate some intricate IRS issues with my businesses and resolved a repayment plan which helped me out tremendously.
I endorse Drew as a consummate professional and will continue to retain his services whenever I need sound advice.

I had a complex problem with back taxes that required reviewing several years of returns and other data. I had delayed taking action for years, which made the situation even more difficult. Drew took it all in stride and set me on the right path. Everything is now resolved, thanks to Drew and his excellent advice. In addition to being a fine attorney, he is a patient and compassionate person. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I worked with Andrew on a tax defense case. Andrew was very knowledgeable, professional, and personable. He also had a great handle on the case, kept me well informed of all matters, and duly followed-up with me regarding every detail that needed my attention. I highly recommend Andrew as a tax attorney.
