How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I like the challenge of helping a client maneuver around the system and use the system to beat itself--the best area to do that is in tax law.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

The more informed the client is, the better I am able to provide accurate legal and accounting advice, especially tax advice.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I do this on a regular basis.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I have done so numerous times, with appropriate disclaimers.

Paul S. Irwin, Attorney at Law & CPA

I worked for Fox & Co for nine months (necessary to get accounting experience to receive a CPA certificate); formed my own firm afterward with which I am still associated.

In addition to being an attorney, I am also a CPA. Being involved in charity work helps me to understand people's needs and the pressures they face; I have done financial counseling for people facing financial crises. I have also been in senior management for numerous companies in the midst of operating law firm.

I can predict future problems and find solutions to solve them. I understand the nature of small businesses and the pressure they face.

Easy going.

Personal interests:

Golf, tennis, travel.
