It could be said that Bruce has an uncanny sense, based on years of experience, of predicting the success of an appeal. But, in truth, his predictions result from hard work and due diligence. Bruce immerses himself, often literally, in the property, thoroughly exploring factors that affect valuation, studying the surrounding environs and evaluating the condition of equipment in those states that assess and tax personal property. He constantly questions whether the client qualifies for exemptions, abatements or assessment reduction. He has the attributes of a forensic lawyer, analyzing, investigating and understanding the impact of the tax and of the tax appeal.
Perhaps most importantly, because of his thorough preparedness, there is no question in the mind of the adversary that Mr. Stavitsky knows the property, understands what it is worth, and knows how to convince the court that his client deserves tax assessment relief.
