I must say that until I met Justin Chin and retained him my opinion of attorneys was not a good one. I thought they were all the same and that they were crooks. Justin has showed me what a an attorney that actually cares about his clients looks like and has been there for me daily through a nasty child custody case. He has always responds quickly, via text, calls and emails, day or night and his pricing is very fair. I admire is calming manor and his confidence. He is also a Christian man that allows God to direct his steps with his cases. I would be a nervous wreck if I didn't have Justin's professionalism guiding me and representing me. I am so grateful that I was able to retain such a great quality attorney and that he has the Experience needed to take my case. Justin also is going to do my taxes. I will always refer my friends to Justin if they ever have to endur the stress of a divorce or custody case. He doesn't just represent you he puts his heart into his cases and always goes above and beyond any expectation that was set. Thank you for everything Justin. May God always bless and keep you.

Filing for bankruptcy can be an overwhelming and trying time for someone. I searched thumbtack for local attorneys who specialized in bankruptcy cases. Of the individuals who responded, Turkessa was the most professional and prompt. I found her rates affordable and she successfully helped file my case. I was totally clueless to how this all works and do not intend to be in the same predicament again. However, Turkessa was very knowledgable and discussed the best options for someone in my position. All I had to do was provide what information I could and she took it from there! Communication was key, and Turkessa kept me informed of everything I needed to do in order to be successfully released from debt. I would recommend her services to anyone in the same unfortunate financial situation.

Carl has been our business attorney for a number of years and has always done a great job, whether representing us in standard corporate processes or through managing patent and IP related work. He's smart, pragmatic and always keeps his client's interests first. Carl is effective at making sure you understand the legal system and options. While his practice is small, it means you get personal attention from someone with a LOT of experience. I strongly recommend Carl for personal or business needs. His work is high quality, affordable, and most importantly I feel you can trust him.

Ms. Watson is a life saver. After being told by two other attorneys that I didn't have a case, I met with Ms. Watson. She took the time to listen to me and explained that it was going to be tough. She kept me updated on all that was going on throughout the case. And the best part was we won! I can't thank her enough for taking my case."

Ms. Kessing first and foremost does not like attorneys. She is well equipped to handle any deceit coming from opposing attorney's. She listens intently to her clients, as well as working to educate her clients while moving through the legal process. She is great at thinking on her feet under pressure. Even better, when you contact her to speak about your case, you speak with her and not a paralegal. She is a supportive attorney from the beginning through to the end of your case. You are not just another file.

My parents were both lawyers. I have been a lawyer for 30 years. I have seen Ms. Pennywell ONLY ONCE. I was surprised at her poise. 50 years of seeing lawyers and judges---- I'd say she is a good one.

Graduate Teaching Assignments During the past ten years, I have taught over 100 courses in advanced accounting, taxation and business law to graduate business students pursuing either a master of business administration or a master of accounting and finance graduate degree. A brief description of each course is set forth below. Federal Taxes and Management Decisions AC553/AC560 This course, ac553, is the first in a two-course sequence covering federal taxation. This course focuses on individual taxation in the business context-such as self-employed entrepreneur, investor, or employee. It also introduces tax concepts for corporations and s-corporations. The companion course, advanced studies in federal taxes and management decisions, ac560, focuses more intensely on taxation for business activity such as for corporations, partnerships, and other types of business associations. Topics included in this course include an introduction to federal taxation, purpose of taxation, types of taxation, tax avoidance vs. tax evasion, tax research tools and techniques, sources and weight of authority for tax law, individual taxation, taxation of corporations, and taxation of s-corporations, gross income, exclusions from gross income, deductions from gross income, itemized deductions, tax accounting, property transactions - determination of basis, gains and losses, and non-recognition of gains and losses. Advanced studies in federal taxes and management decisions is designed to expand the coverage and complexity of corporate and partnership taxation and introduces topics such as corporate reorganizations, estate and gift taxation, fiduciary accounting, tax-exempt entities and qualified and non-qualified plans. Forensic and Investigatory Accounting AC574 "Forensic" refers to activity that involves investigation done in a legal manner. In the accounting arena this involves, investigating and preventing financial fraud, aiding in resolving disputes, offering support during litigation including expert testimony, valuation calculations and other criminal investigations including terrorist and money-laundering schemes. Forensic accounting is definitely a critical tool in bridging the gap between "number crunching" and legal acceptance of financial evidence, a bridge that is vital in our complex post-enron, post-9/11 global world. Advanced Accounting AC559 This course covers financial accounting practice and theory in relation to consolidations, foreign currency transactions and financial statement translation, partnership accounting and special accounting topics surrounding formation, maintenance, reorganizations and liquidation. Legal, political and ethical dimensions of business GM520 the legal, political and ethical dimensions of business introduces students to the legal, political, and regulatory controls that define, promote and limit business practice opportunities. The fundamental interaction of law, politics, ethics and corporate social responsibility is emphasized. Topics include business and the legal system, foundation of business ethics, the constitution and business, regulatory and administrative agencies, regulation of private business conduct, the employer-employee relationship, the formation and performance of contracts, ownership and control of business, antitrust, trade practices and consumer protection, securities law, land-use and environmental protection, and the legal environment of international business. Business Law GM597 GM597 focuses on those critical relationships that make it possible for a corporation to do business including the ability to contract for goods or services, the need for financial instruments to finance business transactions, and the need to retain security interests in goods sold on credit. The course also includes a serious discussion of how we organize to do business (sole proprietor, partnership or corporation) and the consequences of that decision.
