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 small business.  The ingrained work ethic is evident when clients work with Anna; she often becomes a “part of the family” when working with her small business clients.  Anna specializes in the areas of tax law, wealth and estate planning, and small business transactions.  She focuses her practice on clients who are looking to maximize wealth, reduce tax exposure, and in some situations, 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.
