The letter from the IRS announcing we were being audited struck my wife and I unexpectedly. We contacted our tax preparer we had used for a decade or so, but were not confident after speaking with her that she could represent us well. Upon speaking to a trusted attorney friend, we called Diane Pallas. From the very first meeting, we were confident we had found the right person to represent us.

I remember my wife Leslie crying on the way home from that first meeting, so relieved that we had found the help we were seeking. Over the following long months Diane Pallas worked hard building our strategy and presentation to the IRS. She knows the system very well, having served as an agent for many years, as an instructor of continuing education for agents, and now as an experienced taxpayer’s representative. She served us well technically, saving us considerable expense, but also provided the emotional support we needed in order to take this intervention in stride. We would recommend her services highly.
