What My Clients Say
Candice took a complicated issue, researched all aspects and broke it down into an easily understandable course of action. Her expertise took the guess work out of my tax situation and put me at ease. Candice is a consummate professional and I have complete confidence in recommending her not just in an online review, but to my personal friends-- who have had equally positive experiences with her tax services. When I have a tax question-- she's my first call.
Molly West Marketing
Candice provided outstanding end to end legal advice for multiple years of nonprofit tax filings. Organized, patient, and approachable, Candice was a joy to work with. Provided me with the answers I needed to get the job done and protect our nonprofit. Would absolutely recommend her services to anyone needing competent, professional, and down to earth counsel in the area of tax law.
Kate Hudson
Treasurer, Ms. JD
Candice was very helpful in assisting with our taxes. She was so thorough in researching filing taxes in our situation. I would highly recommend her for any tax-related needs.
Military Spouse
I truly cannot say enough great things about McPhillips Law. Candice not only helped me navigate my way through our families tax situation, but she also helped me form my LLC from the ground up. She did thorough research, filled out forms, put documents together in an organized and easy to read format, and answered all of my questions. If she was unsure of an answer, she did her research and came back with one. I had complete confidence and trust in her capabilities. You can tell she truly loves the work she does and takes pride in it. I hope Candice will keep both my family and my business on as clients for years to come!
