Richard Davidson, EA
At 20/20: I manage the consulting side of the business.
Success story: Any time the taxing authority wrongfully tries to steamroll a client and we put an end to it, I’m particularly satisfied.
Industry experience: Since 1997.
Before 20/20: I worked for another financial consulting company. I was also the co-founder of Meditrac, Inc., a healthcare company responsible for ensuring that people take their medications properly. Before that, I worked as a commercial litigation attorney for a number of years at firms in Chicago and Detroit.
Piece of advice: In order to achieve the best possible outcome, you need to be honest and forthcoming, no matter how bad or embarrassing the situation is.
Little-known fact(s): I’m a mentor for Colorado Youth at Risk. The program entails working one-on-one with a 9th grader to provide the support he/she may need to graduate from high school. The work I have done with this organization has made me a better husband, parent and manager.
