I remembered the day I walked into Jon's office with that feeling of uncertainty and hopelessness in regards to a mountain of debt compounded by the IRS ready to take action with liens and garnishment. After the 2nd meeting with Jon and staff I was feeling confident in their ability to not only settle this mess but get me back in a position I never thought possible. I cannot thank Outside the box enough for a thorough, professional,and honest experience. Thank you for getting myself and my growing families life back to a place of financial ease.

Thorough, honest, and professional

Jon, it was such a pleasure working with you (despite the unpleasantness of being so far in debt) and everyone on your staff was incredibly professional and helpful and kind.

Thank you for everything you did for me... I have such a feeling of relief and feel much more educated as well.

Thanks again!

I was so lucky to find the best lawyer through a good friend. Mr. Jon Dowat is very professional and he has too much patience. He remembers everything about your financial troubles and always gives good advice. Sometimes I don't want to listen to his advice, then I find out he was correct. I am glad he helped me and my family to go back to our normal life again. We thought it was over, that we would loose everything we had that we worked hard to earn. I can't thank him enough. He' is a good man and may God bless him. Best of all, he always has excellent smile when he sees you. Thank you again and again. Do yourself a favor and go see him.

Mr. Dowat is a consummate professional. He is extremely credible, demonstrates great command of tax law and is very thorough. Thinking Outside the Box helped me with auditing my past income taxes and representing me to the IRS. I felt at ease knowing that I had Jon and Madeleine to be my advocates. I would recommend their professional services to anyone who is seeking tax assistance or facing an audit from the IRS. This firm is terrific!

I started a new business in October of 2009. Jon helped me through the process of incorporating and registering with the state. He was very responsive, and even though I am a "small fish" in a big pond, he made me feel like I was an important client.

Jon and his staff were amazing to work with. They answered all of our questions and were very thorough. He even found extra money in my old tax returns. I am so happy I found him! It's been such a relief to work with a company that made a scary and stressful process less scary and stressful.
