Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial Media

I am a tax attorney and CPA with a varied work experience. I spent multiple years working for PricewaterhouseCoopers in Houston in Mergers and Acquisitions. I also spent a couple of years teaching tax accounting at SFA; I still teach part-time at TJC. Although I no longer represent the Exxons of the world, my attention to detail and knowledge of the Internal Revenue Code is substantial. In my current practice, I focus on tax and business planning, estate planning, bankruptcy, and property issues in divorce.

I was raised in North Louisiana, but as a graduate of White Oak High School, I have East Texas roots. I graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in economics, then attended the University of Wyoming for law school. People always ask me, "How did you end up in the North Pole?" Short story really--I worked for a Senate Committee and the Chairman, Mike Enzi was from Wyoming. Meeting him and so many other Wyoming staffers (including my husband) convinced me to enroll at UW. Immediately after graduation, I obtained a Masters in Tax Law from the most prestigious and recognized tax school in the country--the University of Florida. Although I was born into a family of Tigers, I became a Gator!

Legal Answers
12 Questions Answered
Q. There are 5 partners in an LLC as follows 2 30% owners 1 20% 2 10%. one of the 30% buys out the 20% behind closed doors
A: Do you have an operating agreement? Most operating agreements have buy-out clauses that prevent this from happening. Without an operating agreement, your options are limited.
Q. I want to deposit 15k cash from years of my birthdays and graduation parties. How am I suppose to prove it’s legal money
A: Just deposit it. You don't have to prove it is legal money. If you are charged with theft or embezzlement etc., the government has to prove it is illegal money, not you.
Q. Are there tax implications when transferring a rent house to an LLC when the LLC has already been operating it?
A: I am not just passing the buck, but you really need to hire a tax professional with this transaction.
