I have never met someone who has more compassion, more dedication and more care than Elizabeth Gonsalves. She is not just an amazing attorney, but a great human being. And that is a rare, but precious combination no matter what profession. No one ever thinks it will happen to them, but when it does, Elizabeth is the one that you want on your side when it comes to taxes. I interviewed several tax preparations firms and I instantly knew that Elizabeth was the right one for me. She knows the law, she will go to bat for you and she can make what might see impossible, possible. I was embarrassed because I got behind because of a very serious illness and Elizabeth took my case, she believed in me and she helped me figure out what I needed to do to get back on track with my Federal and State tax returns. And I could not be happier with the results. She was direct, patient, kind and she really knows how to work with the "system"while still protecting you and helping you get to the very best possible resolution. If you need help with your taxes, you've come to the right place. She's the best of the best! 5 Star Yelp Review : 7/9/2014

With my business tanking and a child on the way, I couldn't afford to get scammed by the many letters in the mail saying they would settle your taxes for pennies on the dollar. Elizabeth is the best of the best, she helped me get a great payment plan and got me in touch with a great bookkeeper. I can't talk enough about how professional and understanding she is. Elizabeth will keep you in the loop every step of the way. She is open and honest, don't waste your money on scam letters or radio adds, have Elizabeth take care of your problems. 5 Star Yelp Review : 7/16/2014
Wow...I can not say enough about Elizabeth. My husband and were dealing with some difficult personal tax issues and I called Elizabeth to see if I could get a consultation with her. After carefully listening to our situation she took more than a generous amount of time to explain, with real clarity, her opinion about our issue and reassured me, that our options that we had already implemented, where the best options that we had. There was no hard sale...she didn't try to get me into her office to charge me a consultation fee...she just helped with all of her advise freely, warmly and proffessionally. She even recommended a new accountant for us to work with in the future. If you are looking for an honest knowledgeable Attorney regarding your taxes, she's the one. I know we are definitely going to use her if anything arises in the future. 5 Star Yelp Review : 9/9/2013
Our company's tax issues were handled by someone else before Elizabeth Gonsalves took over, and I was so glad that I made that move. The revenue officer handling our case said that he made some calls to my attorney at that time, but he never got any reply back from him. I was so desperate to get help at that time, and fortunately, Ms. Gonsalves came to our rescue. Just talking with her on the phone, she went in details on what to expect and what course of action we will take. I set an appointment to see her, and judging by our first face-to-face meeting, you can sense the professionalism, dedication and compassion in what she does. A very meticulous person and very knowledgeable on tax laws! I could have agreed for a very affordable resolution, but in her case, she will take the extra effort to get you a better one, if not the best. She keeps you updated throughout the negotiation process. This alone eases the burden of having to deal these kinds of issues by yourself. Complicated tax issues? Do not carry the burden by yourself. Have a professional take care of that for you. Do not just take my word for it, consult with Elizabeth Gonsalves and you will never go wrong. I did, and I made the right decision. 5 Star Yelp Review : 7/21/2014
