About Hertsel

Advocate. Counselor. Problem Solver.

These are how I see my roles when I work with you to help you resolve your difficult tax and business problems. I understand the pressure you face with a stressful tax or business matter, when you simply need to turn to someone to fight on your behalf.  I also understand the confusion and uncertainty when you deal with complicated tax and business questions, when you just want someone to truthfully explain to you what is happening and what options are available to you. Most of all, I understand the desire for realistic and practical solutions to resolve your tax and business problems when it seems like there is no answer in sight.

I work to find the best solutions for you–solutions to save you time, to save you money, and to save you frustration. So when you feel like you are caught in a dark and endless storm of problems with no help and no protection, I am here to provide you shelter with confidential and experienced counsel, to guide you and to help find a hopeful resolution.

Contact us today to get the help you need with your tax or business problem.
