What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? We are commercial property tax advisors, not just appeal attorneys. It is our job to not only keep our client’s property taxes as low as possible, but also to provide as much certainty as possible to each new client transaction or development. The plan is to continue to amass both talent and experience and build relationships in the geographic areas in which we practice.

How do you unwind from a busy day? I should probably learn how to do that.
