I am lucky to work with Mr. Michael Wells every day. He is a pleasure to work with, is always open to guiding and advising, caring, and a great person overall. I also see how he speaks and works the clients' cases including the time and care that he gives to each client. He is the type of attorney that I will feel great recommending to my friends and family.
Client Reviews
Robal Olarte May 16, 2023
Outstanding knowledge and service! If you have any issues with the IRS or California Franchise Tax Board (FTB), I highly recommend engaging Michael Wells as your attorney. Mr. Wells was the lead attorney for our case. He and his team were 100% there for us throughout the 18-month process. Communication throughout was outstanding. Michael and his team took the IRS to task and my tax liability went from hundreds of thousands to zero dollars. I had several one-on-one telephone interviews and many email conversations with Mr. Wells. I found him to be friendly, knowledgeable, and able to distill the esoterica of the IRS into terms that a layman can understand. Kudos to Michael Wells.
