"As a health professional, we are trained to take care of patients. Very often, we are not properly trained or counseled on how to take care of our finances/taxes obligations. For almost ten years I trusted many so called "financial consultants/tax professionals who only got me further and further into dept. and tax liability. When the IRS sent letters threatening to garnish my wages and levy my accounts, I was very confused and anxious. I new I had to make a change. When I was introduced to LEK Management, Ms. Karam sat with me and reviewed my entire financial/tax history and it was only then that I found out that years of tax returns were never filed or that many of them were filed improperly. LEK Management outlined a plan specific to my circumstances which give me great confidence in what needed to be done. It was a stepwise approach. It was refreshing to observe the level of professionalism. In addition to regular meetings to keep me updated, I was also impressed with how timely her response was to any inquiries that I made. She was always accessible which made me feel that they cared about my concerns. Currently I am up to date on all of my returns and there is finally light at the end of this tunnel. I am truly elated."
