Thomas J. Phillips featured in article “Volunteer Spotlight: Tax Lawyers Restore Hope to Low-income Clients”

State Bar of Wisconsin Inside Track

Below is an excerpt:

Madison attorney Margaret Maroney (read about her in this 2014 InsideTrack article) who was helping Alex with his immigration issues on a pro bono basis, contacted the State Bar to find another lawyer willing to help Alex with his tax problem. Tom Phillips, a tax partner in the Milwaukee Office of Quarles & Brady LLP, quickly responded. He was able to assist Alex with filing amended returns, correcting inaccurate information, and negotiating a resolution to the identity theft issue. With this tax issue behind him, Alex will be eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship in three years.
