I joined Devine Millimet after more than 25 years with the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration in various roles, including director of the audit division. Now business and individual clients seek my advice on federal and state tax planning. I also represent clients facing the Internal Revenue Service and various state departments of revenue on compliance issues and personal or corporate tax matters. My expertise in identifying potential tax compliance issues also helps clients who are dealing with mergers, acquisitions, and sales of businesses.
 
Individuals, corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies in the construction, real estate, technology, hospitality, and manufacturing industries are among our clients. I help them determine their actual or potential multistate tax exposure based on ever-changing tax laws and regulations. New Hampshire’s unique tax provisions make my assistance especially valuable to clients as they navigate the state’s requirements.
 
While away from work, I enjoy spending time with my children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. The antics of my three Bichon Frises keep me busy and entertained.
