from, London, England

Ms. Yu assisted us with a particularly unfair tax decision relating to an assessment of a work of art received as a gift from an overseas relative.  She reviewed the regulations, spoke with government officials and correctly opined that we should not pay the tax, but seek an exemption.  She wrote a brilliant letter explaining the law and our facts.  Through persistent phone calls to the tax departments, she finally obtained the exemption for us.  Her fees represented only a fraction of the tax payable and we would have paid it had she not given us her valuable advice and professional services.  She kept us informed of the developments and the documents she prepared for us were simple to understand and easy to implement.  Her personal touch to her professional services and her attention to detail makes her a truly professional lawyer.

Michelle took the time to navigate the complexities of the trust. I had a situation where she took the time to call the county assessor’s office for me to clear some potential tax consequences up. I have and will continue to refer her.
