LEGAL COUNSEL IN DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL TAX CONTROVERSY AND COMPLIANCE MATTERS

Profile

LaVonne D. Lawson, Attorney at Law

I provide tax counsel and representation to individuals and businesses in myriad matters focused particularly in compliance issues, both domestic and international.  Before I represented the private sector, both in a firm as well as in my own office, I represented the public sector as a trial attorney with the Office of the Chief Counsel of Internal Revenue Service.  Experiences in the public sector and in the private sector inform and add depth to what I do and bring to each matter.


A little more information:


ATTITUDE:  I believe in the value of relationships. I listen.  I am committed to giving care and attention to each matter and am dedicated to obtaining effective and practical solutions.  Accessible and responsive, I work closely with clients to understand their needs and to keep them informed.
