My goal is to make the tax resolution process as easy and stress free as possible so you can get back to focusing on the things that bring you joy.

“No radio ads, sales pitches, or unrealistic promises here. As a lawyer, my job is to counsel, guide, and advise. What I do promise to do is listen to your story, become your fiercest advocate, and help you resolve your tax matter while obtaining your financial goals.”

A History of Helping

From my parents’ kitchen table to the counsel table, every aspect of my life has given me the insights, skills, and experience it takes to artfully craft tailored solutions for businesses, individuals, and families facing tax issues.

I’m the daughter of a credit analyst with a teacher’s heart and a mother who had a powerful entrepreneurial spirit.

From a young age, I worked in my family’s skating rink and witnessed first-hand the challenges of running a small business over more than 3 decades.

As a girl, my father taught me important financial principles. The wisdom from my dad played a key role in my desire to dedicate my professional career to helping others who are facing financial crises.

Education

Undergrad

After graduating from the University of Georgia, I started out as a legal receptionist for a prominent Atlanta Bankruptcy Attorney. I was quickly promoted to paralegal. To avoid taking on too much student loan debt, I worked full-time while attending Georgia State University School of Law at night.

Law School

During my third year of law school, I interned with United States Bankruptcy Judge the Honorable Margaret A. Murphy. I drafted orders for matters on the docket in complex Chapter 11litigation. During my time with Judge Murphy 5 out of 5 draft orders were published on the United States Bankruptcy Court website.

I also worked as a Graduate Research Assistant for the Philip Cook Low Income Taxpayer clinic. I helped low-income individuals with all types of IRS matters. I also helped educate and train other clinic students on how to resolve tax matters.

A New Chapter

After law school graduation, I worked as a Chapter 13 Courtroom Attorney for Berry and Associates and was named courtroom attorney for three federal courtrooms in the Atlanta Division. After my tenure at Berry and Associates, I joined Bomar Law Firm, LLC, where I represented taxpayers in all areas of tax litigation.

Leaning into my mother’s entrepreneurial spirit and knowing I’d already successfully taken on almost every role in the legal field, I was confident I had the experience to open my own law firm.

“I didn’t feel I was getting enough opportunity to help people the way I wanted to truly help people.”
