We’re located in Austin because that’s where state tax matters are resolved. Austin is the home of the Texas Comptroller’s Office and the venue for both administrative and district court litigation. The Third Court of Appeals and the Texas Supreme Court are also located in Austin.
Our office is conveniently located downtown near the Texas Comptroller’s Office, the State Office of Administrative Hearings, the Travis County District Courthouse, and the corresponding appellate courts. As members of the local community, we have a hometown advantage in Comptroller meetings and in the courtroom.
Our clients are as diverse as our state tax practice. We represent small businesses and Fortune 500 companies across a variety of industries and geographical locations. We know the tax laws and we will learn the details of your business. For example, we’ve assisted clients in the business of oil and gas production, oilfield services, technology, construction, retail/wholesale, and service industries.
Our lawyers stay up-to-date on state tax matters by frequently writing and speaking on these subjects. We are licensed to practice before all Texas state courts, including the state district courts, appellate courts, and the Texas Supreme Court. Jimmy Martens is Board Certified in Tax Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Although our state tax focus is on Texas, we have previously obtained pro hac vice status to assist our clients with state tax matters in other states.
