Certified Specialist


Kaye Willi is both a Tax Attorney and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), with over twenty years’ experience in the private practice of law. Before opening her law practice in 1996, Kaye was an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Ohio and a senior tax consultant with an international accounting firm. Because she focuses her practice in the areas of tax advocacy and tax dispute resolution, Kaye is able to stay current with the most recent changes in the IRS Regulations and procedures, and is able to offer her clients the most cutting-edge procedures and techniques available. Kaye is also licensed to practice before the U.S. Tax Court.

Kaye lives in Galena with her husband, Mark, and two extremely spoiled Siamese cats. Their son, Brian, a graduate of St. Charles Preparatory School, is currently serving in the U.S. Navy.
