I successfully defended a sizable personal casualty loss clients Jeff and Dana Jeffries (not their real names) deducted on their tax return. The Jeffries expressed appreciation for my thoroughness in doing an excellent job. Their personal injury attorney told the Jeffries he’d contact me if he ever had a matter before the IRS! Integral to our successful defense was the Jeffries’ record-keeping, including their catalogue of hundreds of items, accurate chronology of events, copies of contracts, and pictures.
She will fight for you and not back down
Victoria worked tirelessly on our IRS case. It wasn’t even an audit but the IRS was treating it as if it were. We spent one year working through the issues that the IRS created. We did make some mistakes and had to make concessions, but Victoria gave us great advice. She kept us informed every step of the way and held the agent and management accountable. They threw out documented proof of our write-offs. Don’t go it alone. Victoria will work hard for you. She will fight to protect your rights. She will not let the IRS take advantage of you. Thank you, Victoria! We really appreciate you and your expertise. We hope we never have to go through this again, but if we do, we definitely want to work with you again.
Very Complex IRS Issue
I was shocked to receive a 6 figure bill from the IRS (in error). I knew I needed a lawyer with super powers to help me muddle through that. Luckily I found Victoria and she was amazing. She knew exactly what to do with my complex case and in dealing with a complex organization. The matter was resolved with the IRS instead issuing me a refund. To say I’m satisfied is an understatement. I highly recommend her services.
Two “no change” audits
Wow, that’s amazing! You truly are good at what you do.
I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into this OIC and I’m really grateful to have you on our side. I’m feeling optimistic about the outcome and we truly treasure all your hard work.
Thank you very much for all your help. I’ve learned so much with you. With you by my side, I’ll never be afraid of the IRS.

We found Victoria Eve Kelly to be a gem—extremely knowledgeable, patient, thorough and kind. She had and freely supplied the necessary tax information to familiarize us with the tax code. She evaluated our answers and pointed out items that needed further clarification and documentation. Victoria replied promptly to all our questions. She inspired us with confidence in her ability to navigate the complicated tax code. Victoria is also a very nice person. She was always highly professional, yet we always felt that she wanted us to understand the law and how it applied to our case, giving us the confidence that we presented our case correctly. Thank you Victoria for guiding us through this nightmare!

Attorney Kelly is one of the best attorneys I’ve ever known. Attorney Kelly helped me correct my tax problems with the IRS. Attorney Kelly is very knowledgeable, very accurate, has an outstanding positive attitude, is honest, and she cares very much about my problems. Attorney Kelly removed my nightmare with IRS in very short time, and accurately. Hopefully I will never have problems with the IRS again, but heaven forbid if I do, I know where to go for peace-of-mind. I was very, very impressed with Attorney Kelly’s work, so my next project is to work with Attorney Kelly to do my Trust & Will, because I know I am in good hands, and I know I will pay a very reasonable price for her service. Thank you Attorney Kelly for all the good work that you have done for me.

I had the opportunity to work with Mrs. Kelly on preparing a Will for my family and I jumped at the opportunity. Although discussing and preparing a Will, may be a difficult thing to do, working with Mrs. Kelly put my mind at ease. Mrs. Kelly offered certain strategies to address my particular family circumstances, she showed patience, compassion and professionalism and worked tirelessly to ensure my Will would truly express my last wishes.
I just wanted to share a quick note and let you know it was wonderful working with you. As a single mother it can be hard to find a lawyer that you can trust and that would understand my unique needs and concerns when dealing with a difficult situation. Although at first I was concerned with how much your services would cost, you quickly put my mind at ease by working with me. You are very knowledgeable in your field and took the time to answer any question or concern I may have had and explained every step of the process. Thanks for all your help. If the opportunity presents itself I would gladly work with you again and recommend you to my friends that may need help when dealing with a similar situation. Thanks again!
I strongly recommend Attorney Victoria Eva Kelly for any issues you have with the IRS, tax planning, tax preparation and estate planning. I communicated unsuccessfully with the IRS regarding my tax refund for more than a year. I contracted with Attorney Kelly to represent me, she resolved my case with the IRS within one week and I received my refund within two weeks. Attorney Kelly is very professional, knowledgeable and treats each case and each client in a personable way.
She is working with me through all the issues around which I contacted her. She is expert in the areas I need and is a pleasure to work with.
Excellent experience in dealing with my problem situation in a professional manner.

A knowledgeable tax attorney. She prepared complicated tax returns involving another state, a foreign business, and virtual currencies. She explained everything clearly and was very easy to work with.
LITC ATTORNEY SPOTLIGHT
John, an 82 year old native Spanish speaker, received an undesired IRA distribution through a bank error. He then missed the 60 day window for rolling over this distribution to a traditional IRA, which resulted in a Notice CP14 from the IRS assessing nearly $11,000 in taxes, penalties, and interest.
MVLS volunteer attorney Victoria Kelly volunteered to assist John, despite not being a native Spanish speaker herself. Through the use of a translator and assistance from John’s friends and family, Victoria was able to effectively communicate with John and assist him with his issue. It turned out that John had rolled over his distribution with time to spare after all! Victoria submitted an amended return to the IRS with a letter of explanation.
John later received a Notice CP21C from the IRS showing no balance due. Much relieved, John presented Victoria with these lovely flowers as a token of his appreciation.
Victoria showed great care and commitment to this case in her efforts to work with John while still maintaining ethical integrity. John had difficulty hearing in addition to being a native Spanish speaker with possible diminished capacity. With this in mind, Victoria took extra measures to ensure his comprehension and agreement to the course of action. With her attention to detail and concern for John’s comprehension of the case details and overall well-being, Victoria strongly exemplifies MVLS’ values.
A big thank you to Victoria for helping us spread “justice for all.”
