Who’s Who in Women in Professional Services – Michelle Espey
September 02, 2020
Michelle E. Espey is a partner in the tax group at Farrell Fritz, P.C. in Uniondale. Espey counsels clients on a broad range of tax matters, from representing individuals and businesses in all stages of federal, state and city tax disputes to advising clients on tax aspects of various transactions. She also advises not-for-profits on issues related to their tax exempt status.
Delivering superior legal services in the midst of a pandemic has unquestionably necessitated a new way of thinking and greater flexibility, Espey said.
“Clients have had many questions about the tax breaks resulting from pandemic-related legislative and administrative changes including tax credits, filing postponements, the suspension of tax payments and deferral of certain tax collection and compliance programs,” she said. “I have relied on new and existing technology to ensure that I remain accessible to clients and real-time communication continues.”
“Clients, especially those who are in the midst of financial crisis due to the pandemic, need someone who will proactively connect with them and really listen to their concerns,” Espey noted.
