Meet Dan Willett, co-founder and Senior Tax Attorney at Honest Tax Solutions.
Dan Willett is a graduate of the University of California at Irvine where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics and Southwestern Law School, where he earned a Juris Doctor degree from the Southwestern SCALE program, the only two year Nationally accredited law degree in the United States.
After graduation, Dan pursued a career in civil litigation, practicing for more than ten years at trial level in various Superior Courts in Southern and Northern California. As a trial attorney, Dan litigated contract matters, liability claims, consumer protection issues and bad faith claims. Dan’s sole venture into Appellate work was to co-author and successfully argue an Appeal in the California Appellate Court, fifth District.
In private practice, Dan found that many of his clients had tax issues either in addition to, or because of their other legal issues. Dan became certified to prepare tax returns as a benefit to his litigation clients, and has been a registered professional tax return preparer for the past nineteen years.
In addition to litigation, Dan has worked as in-house counsel for small and medium sized businesses and start-ups in Orange County, and has performed financial and SOX compliance design, testing and implementation, as well as corporate tax issues for private and public companies, including 10K and 10Q filings.
Dan brings a mix of business experience and tax knowledge to Honest Tax Solutions, which allows Honest Tax Solutions to offer both personal tax preparation and resolution as well as business guidance from formation through growth to business success for our corporate clients.
Dan and Daniel share a commitment to seeing clients through not just the difficult times, but helping them to grow and prosper in all times, by offering guidance that contributes to the success of their clients through financial, business and tax advice.
In Dan’s spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, travelling internationally and cruising around town on his refurbished motorcycle.
