      Hands down the best attorney for our needs. A shady employer from my youth had double income taxed me without my knowledge. It slipped through the cracks for years without my knowledge. Then, one year I file my taxes and get hit with an astronomical bill full of fees of penalties, fines, etc. Not to mention they withheld my refund check. It was a devastating blow to us. Stressful to no end. We tried contacting the IRS, of course, they were no help. It was Mary King who fought for our rights. It seemed to be a long drawn out process but Mary King never lost drive in getting what we needed. I would 100% recommend her to anyone.
