This attorney approves of Drew Wyan
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!

Review for Andrew Wyman, tax attorney
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.

Very responsive and detail oriented tax attorney
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.

Professional and trustworthy.
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. CN

Drew Wyman Is The Best!
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.

Excellent Attorney
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.

Drew Wyman is an outstanding attorney
Mr. Wyman was patient and has a vast knowledge of the tax system. He did keep me informed of the entire process. Always willing to help and take time out of his day, which showed to me a commitment to excellence. I thank you again!!!

Look no further
I received a letter from the IRS stating that I owed a large sum of money. They even provided an "Installment Agreement Request". That's when I decided it was time to find a lawyer. I searched the web for tax lawyers and found Drew. He was able to squeeze me in to his busy schedule and in one meeting was able to decipher the multi-page IRS letter. I went from owing a shocking amount of money, to a very small amount. I would highly recommend Drew for any IRS problems.

Efficient, Effective and Professional
On the same day I received a notice from the IRS I was able to meet with Drew. He walked me through the IRS letter, explaining what response he recommended - by the end of that first meeting I was confident I had picked the right Tax Lawyer. With follow-up correspondence Drew was prompt, efficient and thorough. He helped me resolve my tax issue (very successfully) in short-order and with minimal hassle. I would highly recommend Drew for any Tax issues.

Great service and great to work with!
When I got the IRS notice and contacted Drew for an appointment, he made time and met with me in person. He clearly explained to me what the notice was all about and the next course of action. Over the next weeks of waiting, everytime I received a notice, and emailed it to Drew, I always received timely and clear/concise response. The IRS issue is now resolved, and a huge Thanks to Drew for his work and support on this.

Great to work with
We received a letter from the IRS stating that we owed an additional $10,000 in taxes. We contacted Drew and within a few hours of reviewing our information he was able to reassure us that he could respond back to the IRS on our behalf and the penalty was a lot less. He was very timely and responded to communication very quickly. I would highly recommend using Drew.

Awesome Job
We received a letter from the IRS saying we owed an additional $20,000. It was a complicated mess. Drew was able to cut through the haze and by time we walked out of his office on our initial visit, we knew we were in good hands and that he would take care of things. By time it was all over, we ended up making a payment to the IRS of $1,300, not $20,000. He's a very pleasant person, easy to work with and very good at what he does.

Highly Recommended for dealing with IRS for tax mistakes
I was in dire straits and frantically looking for help after getting slapped with a $14K fine by the IRS. I picked Attorney Andrew Wyman to help me because of lack of any tall claims and because he was recommended by my legal insurance. Pros: Very effective. I have been fined by IRS twice. In the first case I had actually paid the tax but not filled tax forms properly. IRS thought I had underpaid and asked me to pay roughly $14K including a very large fine. In fact I had overpaid a bit. In this instance, Attorney Wyman worked with the IRS and I actually got about about 500 dollars back from them. In the second case I had really failed to show some income and was asked to pay roughly 4K. Once again Attorney Wyman worked with the IRS to get my fine waived so I just had to pay the underpaid tax itself. Very responsive - I once had to go overseas and my immigration attorney asked me not to leave without full documnetation of the outstanding tax issues. Attorney Wyman helped me get all of that within 2 hours. Any time I had any questions, Attorney Wyman always answered my emails immediately. Of all the attorneys I have dealt with, he was the easiest to reach. Not greedy - Attorney Wyman told me at the first meeting that my legal insurance would be paying him. After that he never ever asked me for any kind of payment. Especially after getting a refund from the IRS, I expected demands of some money from the attorney. But no such demand came. Cons: No Fancy Office - I noticed is that attorney Wyman does not maintain a fancy office etc and all your communication is directly with him without having to go wait at an office or deal through secretaries etc. This did bother me in the beginning but with time, I found this to be immaterial as he was very effective in his work which is what matters.

US - Canadian Tax issue resolved favorably.
I had a tax issue where about half of my income was received from work done in Canada. Mr. Wyman worked with the appropriate agencies in both countries and completely resolved all of my issues. When all was said and done, I received a refund. Awesome. Thanks Andrew.

Professional & Prompt
We've had the opportunity to work with Mr. Wyman on few occasions, and were pleased with his professionalism and ability to explain the process in easily understood terms. Both times we worked with Mr. Wyman we experienced successful outcomes.
Posted by Laura | June 5, 2012
Knowledgable, Reliable and Responsive
After meeting with Andrew and providing all of my personal details, he took the front line in conversing with the IRS. He was able to keep the lines of communication going while providing me time to respond. He reviewed all of the data and when errors were found he was able to get those corrected with the IRS while moving our case forward. Really took a lot of worry off my shoulders with his knowledge and responsiveness.

His knowledge and calmness were reassuring. Step by step he helped me through the process to a successful outcome. Thanks!
