A letter from
Nicole Forsythe

Tax law is about more than just the statutes and regulations. It’s also about understanding how the IRS works and the factors they consider when making decisions about taxpayers. My niche practice provides me the opportunity to combine my love of solving complex tax problems with my passion for minimizing  government overreach into its own private citizens. Throughout my years as an attorney, I’ve learned the procedures and tactics employed by IRS agents and investigators. This allows me to create a defense strategy that will secure a realistic, fair, and favorable outcome. 

This is how I aim to serve you.

I listen to you without judgment, creatively problem-solve with you, and fight for you. Let me put my passion and experience to work for you today.
