Robert Venables, CPA, JD, LLM Director, Tax

Working closely with all clients, Robert takes a special interest in working with new clients because it gives him the chance to review their prior-year tax returns. He enjoys the challenge of identifying opportunities for additional refunds on those prior returns or ways to reduce taxes in the future.
