    Biography

    Anna Pratt loves that every day is challenging and fast paced in her practice of law.  Working side by side with a team of lawyers, CPA’s, and financial planners, Anna’s goal is to assist those looking to plan for their business’s future.  Growing up, Anna was a part of a family who successfully owned a multi-generational business.  The ingrained work ethic is evident when clients work with Anna; she often becomes a “part of the family” when working with her business clients.  Anna specializes in the areas of tax law, corporate restructuring, business transactions, and wealth and estate planning.  She focuses her practice on clients who are looking to maximize wealth, reduce tax exposure, and if necessary, work to minimize adverse consequences.  Anna tracks changes in federal and state tax law, in order to help her clients prepare for their corporate future, as well as the future of clients with wealth management needs.
