Jerrod began specializing in his area of practice after seeing the devastating impact the IRS could make on individuals, families, and small businesses. Early in his career, he witnessed family members aggressively targeted for collection by a state revenue agency due to a technical error that almost ruined their business and good name. This experience was pivotal in forming his practice.
Jerrod is a tax law and procedure nerd. He studied at one of the nation’s leading taxation programs. He trained specifically on tax procedures under IRS Counsel. For a while, he worked at one of the largest tax software companies in the nation.
There, he consulted on C suite level staff’s returns. He understands the technical aspects and the emotional toll of dealing with the IRS on families and businesses.
Jerrod served in leadership roles in many nonprofit organizations, the military, and the Civil Air Patrol. He often volunteers his services for low-income Maine residents through Pine Tree Legal Services or other agencies’ requests. Locally, he is a member of the Paul Bunyan BNI Chapter, the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Enrolled Agents, and the American Bar Association. At other times, he has been involved in Rotary and served on the Board of Directors for the local Kiwanis Club.
Jerrod spent his childhood in Maine. He returned for his first job during college. Then, he returned after working in Boston for a few years. He lives happily with his better half, a Bangor native working at a local hospital, and two adorable kittens named Lydia and Lizzie, across the Kenduskeag River from Little City. Thankfully, it provides a better commute to his office than he ever had working outside of Maine.
