“Ethical. Prompt. Reassuring.”

A knowledgeable attorney, a specialist in her field, conscientious, personable and excellent litigator. I would highly recommend her. I am very happy with her support in handling my case with the IRS and ex-husband.*
– Dania


“Great, quick advice”

Karen was recommended by another attorney from a large group. She was on point and gave me choices on how to handle my tax issue. She handled my case quickly and was extremely fair in her costs. I have recommended her to other people. Hope I never have to use her again but if I need to I will.*
– Henry


“Abatement of IRS Penalties”

Retained Karen to request abatement of IRS penalties. Although the process took about 6 months due to snail’s pace of the IRS, Karen was ultimately successful in getting nearly $70,000 in assessments abated. Reasonable fees. Highly Recommend!*
– Melissa


“Best Tax Lawyer in Florida”

Karen is a rare combination of diligence, expertise, and just plain niceness. She communicates frequently without being asked for updates. As a client, you really feel that Karen is out there pulling for you instead of just seeing you as a source of money for her. I have already referred a client to her (he was very happy) and would refer anyone I knew who needs her expertise. I’d give her 10 stars if I could.*
– Gila


“Great Service”

Did better than expected resolving my tax issues. Very friendly also. Would use again.*
– James


“Excellent for Offer in Compromise”

Ms. Lapekas successfully negotiated my Offer in Compromise with the IRS. She is an exceptionally talented attorney, and is always a pleasure to interact with. She used to work for the IRS as an attorney, and I could see this with her familiarity in negotiating with the IRS. I was very impressed with her expertise in this area of law.*
– Richard


“Efficient and human”

I am very pleased with the performance, support, and determination of Ms. Lapekas. She helped us go through this financial matter with professionalism and compassion.

Upon settlement of our case, Ms. Lapekas did everything in her power to ensure this process had truly been as comfortable as possible, just what people need in stressful situations. Thank you!*
– Lea


“Peace of mind back”

Sleepless came to end with the knowledge and help of Mrs. Lapekas. The same day that I talked to her she was able to find a solution to my situation. I am very happy with the outcome and will consult her with any type of issues in the future.*
– Belkis


“Handled my problem with integrity and skill”

I referred my mother to Ms. Lapekas to handle some trouble she had with the IRS. My mom was really upset. Ms. Lapekas gave her advice that saved her from further penalties and from making costly mistakes in handling the IRS.

She was always professional and responsive and most importantly solved my mom’s problems!*
