Lucy was recommended and stepped in to solve a probate tax issue I was having with my late husband’s company. She has a great personality, smart, strategic, and patient. My problem with the company was resolved, and my plan to file taxes was set up and finalized. She made great suggestions on what to do with my future and always returns my phone calls with a promising attitude, always!

Lucy Petry is an excellent lawyer. She has helped set up two different corporate entities for me and my business partner, as well as advised us on tax consequences as well. It is rare to find a lawyer who can effectively do both.  I’ve recommended her to clients of my own and they have been impressed.   She walked us through every step and carefully answered all of our questions. We never felt rushed! She was very attentive to our case and we never had a problem staying in contact with her. I would highly recommend her!

I have lots of questions regarding simple to complicated tax filings. Lucy is my go-to for clear and concise answers. It’s nice to know if I have problems I have an attorney/CPA to help solve tax complications. It’s even better to know working with her I don’t have to worry about having those tax and law problems in the first place.
Jeff Gulitus
Luciana C. Petry played a pivotal point in my case. I was a victim of a scam and Luciana was a partner of the firm I was seeking help from. She exercised her knowledge of taxes and was able to help me retrieve back a majority of my losses. She is very caring, always took time out to be personable and always made me feel at ease when I visited.  Being that they are a small firm, I would be honored to recommend and commend Luciana C. Petry for being that Unicorn in her profession.

Burt Johnson
This firm has helped me change my tax structure to S-corp. They have been really patient and have helped me understand what I am doing and how to do it right. I switched to Petry after my prior attorney just wasn’t answering my questions about how to set-up the S-corp beyond filing the IRS paperwork. My experience at the Petry Firm has been completely different. They’re knowledgeable, professional, and responsive.
