Small Law Firm for your Small Business

Practice Areas

Tax Problems

Ignoring IRS tax problems is a big mistake.

Small Business Law

Starting your own business can be a daunting task. Don't do it alone. Have a small business Attorney-CPA help you today.

Trust & Estate Planning

Have a tax attorney plan for you.

Why Should You Hire a Tax Attorney-CPA?

Client Confidentiality

All legal conversations with an Attorney-CPA are confidential. On the other hand, most conversations with a CPA are not confidential. All attorney/client confidentiality rules apply to your communications with an Attorney-CPA.

Save Money

Generally, individuals who want advice and guidance from an attorney and a CPA must hire two people. Joseph Faulisi, Esq., CPA is both an attorney and a CPA; therefore, by hiring him, you avoid the need to hire two separate professionals. By working with Joseph, you don’t have to pay all the bills associated with accounting and tax advice from a CPA, only to turn around and pay another set of bills for legal advice from a tax attorney.

No Limitations

An Attorney-CPA can represent you in every possible situation. Contrast this with a CPA, who can’t represent you in every court and who may not be able to represent all your tax and accounting needs – especially when those needs cross over into areas of the law. 

Diverse Skillset

A lot of overlap exists between the tax/accounting and legal worlds. A dually licensed Attorney-CPA is a superior choice, offering you a more complete range of services. This is due to the Attorney-CPA’s extensive education and rigorous testing, which has earned them licenses in both professions.    

Preventing Frustration

When your attorney and CPA are two different people, in many instances one or the other might not want to explain certain issues outside their profession. For example, the attorney will not want to explain tax issues, while the CPA will not want to explain legal issues. The result is that these professionals push you back and forth, which leaves you frustrated.
