About

A fair and accurate property valuation is critical to your profitability.

Property tax valuations have a tremendous impact on your bottom line. My job is to make sure your assessment is fair and accurate, to minimize your tax obligation.

Property taxes are one of the primary funding mechanisms for local government. The task of property tax assessment is enormous, with thousands of properties to be valued each year. In mass assessing, it’s easily possible for individual property values to be overlooked, resulting in an excessive increase in a property’s market value. Property valuation is usually determined through a complex computer driven assessment process –– it is only when an appeal is brought that an actual appraiser experienced in the valuation of property, evaluates the property.

Depending on the size and scale of your property, an excessive property valuation can impact your bottom line significantly. A fair and accurate property valuation is critical to your profitability. As a property tax attorney with over 30 years experience helping businesses of all sizes, I can discuss with you the valuation of your property and initiate a property tax appeal in the courts if your property has been unfairly assessed.

  • Key relationships count – Maintaining positive working relationships with individuals in government is a must to helping clients achieve a favorable outcome. I have spent years in the property tax field developing my reputation among government agencies as an attorney who deals fairly and honestly, but always in my client’s best interests.
  • A fair, objective, accurate approach – I evaluate each property tax case based on actual market forces to determine whether your offer is favorable, and whether a settlement is more prudent than taking your case to trial. Regarding your specific assessment situation and jurisdiction, I seriously consider the benefits and risks with the type of approach required and discuss with you that which would be most beneficial to your case.
