In this short video, I share the journey of my family across generations, transitioning from the hard labor of ironworking to the strategic battles of tax law. My story begins with my father, who carried on the ironworking legacy of my grandfather but sought independence from the constraints of union life.
Driven by a desire for autonomy, he started his own janitorial business, tackling a wide array of clients from grocery stores to airplane hangars. Despite the company’s growth, a significant oversight in maintaining proper records led to its downfall.
Following in the footsteps of my father and grandfather, I too became an ironworker, proud to be the third generation. However, life steered me towards a different path, and now I’m a tax attorney. My mission is to help business owners safeguard what they’ve worked hard to build. Battling the IRS isn’t just a job for me; it’s personal. This isn’t merely a story of shifting careers; it’s a narrative about legacy, evolution, and a deep-seated drive to overcome challenges.
