In addition to specializing in tax return preparation and review services, Jim has assisted clients with the purchase and sale of businesses, representation in IRS and state audits, foreign bank account reporting, and complex private foundation tax issues.

Prior to joining D&S in 1995, Jim was a tax manager in the Philadelphia office of Coopers & Lybrand, where he had started his career.
