Understanding Your Rights under Federal and State Tax Laws

I understand the financial and accounting aspects of businesses, as well as the tax liabilities, because I am not only a tax lawyer, but also a licensed certified public accountant (CPA). My legal representation can help businesses address tax challenges and audits, as well as reduce their tax liabilities, and address concerns for short- and long-term growth through tax planning and structuring.

I have been rated BV Distinguished* through Martindale-Hubbell's peer review. I was also selected for inclusion in 2008, 2009 and 2011 Texas Super Lawyers. I am completely bilingual with regard to both professional and cultural matters, which equips me to communicate with Spanish-speaking attorneys and CPAs.

Contact me today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Corporate taxation
  • International operations
  • Partnership taxation
  • Payroll tax compliance
  • State tax planning
  • Excise taxes
