    Detroit office where she is a member of the Tax, Benefits & Estate Planning Practice.

    Practicing for more than three decades, she has acquired a wealth of experience as a sophisticated tax

    her clients on sophisticated multistate tax planning opportunities, manages complex audits, and provides
