“The most important thing you know is what you don’t know…we present opportunities to people. We look at the law, we look at the code, and we say here’s something you could do that will have this impact.”

It’s great to have a tax attorney in our network!
In this episode, we discuss:
- How a constitutional law class at West Point inspired Geoff’s law career
- Why it’s important to find your passion
- What made Geoff decide to specialize in tax law
- Why Geoff enjoys working with entrepreneurs
- Tips on the best tax savings strategies
Geoff also shares his experiences serving in the military, how law school taught him how to think, and how Cantley Dietrich came to be. We also discuss why his ideal clients are like-minded individuals and how to know when you need to talk to a wealth manager in addition to your CPA. We learned a lot from the tax savings strategies he shared and enjoyed hearing some of his goals for 2022, which include winning a government contract. We’re grateful for Geoff’s expert insights and hope our conversation inspires you to pursue what you’re most passionate about.
