Full Service property tax Reduction - protests, appeals & litigation


At Porter Powers, our attorneys aggressively reduce property taxes for our clients from start to finish by providing a "one-stop shop" property tax reduction service. Unlike property tax consultants and advisors who cannot pursue legal action and who outsource their appeals to outside counsel only to focus on quick settlements, we provide a comprehensive property tax reduction service from informal negotiations with Appraisal Districts to appealing at the Appraisal and Review Board level and pursuing litigation in district court when necessary, in order to obtain the maximum tax reduction.

We operate on a contingency and flat rate basis for our commercial clients. Which means if for some reason we are not able to reduce your property taxes, you pay us nothing. However, our attorneys provide unmatched results in property tax reductions compared to any firm in the industry. We are often called on by property tax consultants, advisors and other attorneys to litigate property tax matters when settlement negotiations are unsuccessful.

Appraisal Districts know that we are not property tax consultants or advisors, we are property tax attorneys who are not afraid to pursue aggressive litigation to obtain maximum tax reductions for our clients. For that very reason, Appraisal Districts often present us with higher settlement offers at the outset of every protest.

Although we strive to settle every case, we prepare from the first day we are engaged, as if each case will be fully litigated. We believe that the best settlements take place when an adversary respects the fact that we are always ready to try the case if we have to. Only then does the client receive the best results.

our legal advantage is your legal advantage

Small businesses face numerous threats. Those threats can originate in your personal life or from within the business itself. In the case of a dispute, your business may suffer even if you eventually win: for example, a tax lien could severely impact your cash flow and business continuity.

Superior results

When a small business is launched, “exit strategy” is the furthest thing from the owner’s mind. The immediate focus is on building the business – attracting clients, generating profits, developing as a professional and assembling a team. Bit it pays – and pays big – to begin exit planning as soon as possible.

An Efficient approach to Greater Value reductions

Are doctors “bad business people”? The stereotype has some truth – many doctors even revel in this image. When physicians and dentist operate their own practices (rather than working for hospitals or clinics), they need to be proactive about their financial lives. Those who don’t risk their standard of living, have the ability to build wealth and the legacy they leave their children. Unfortunately, most independent physicians and dentists are on autopilot.
