Richard Schloss is a Member with Dawda, Mann, Mulcahy & Sadler, PLC. Prior to receiving his law degree, Mr. Schloss practiced accounting and was also an IRS Field Agent auditing many different types of business. As a result of this experience, Mr. Schloss brings to the practice of law the understanding of how finances and taxes affect clients and their day-to-day decisions. Mr. Schloss’ practice focuses on small to mid-tier family businesses and practices for whom he acts as their general counsel and brings a wealth of knowledge in many areas because of his years of practice. This includes tax planning, general corporate advice, contract review and negotiation, formation of business and agreements among business owners, representation in the purchase and sale of businesses, estate planning for all clients both high net worth and not so high net worth, including individuals, couples and business owners, and representation of taxpayers before all taxing authorities. Mr. Schloss is always on call for a client and responds quickly realizing their matter is the most important to them.

Mr. Schloss’ knowledge in many business and tax law areas benefits clients because he knows how one issue affects another area of the client’s business or personal life that he has not been asked to address.

Mr. Schloss is aggressive in his representation of a client yet realizes he has to get to the goal line taking into account the cost to the client versus the benefit received.
