Lucas is a tax and business attorney with Robinson & Henry. With a focus on tax law, he routinely speaks on this and other topics in and around the Denver area. Through his intricate knowledge of the IRS and other taxing authorities, Lucas is able to advise both business owners and individuals on how to best structure their tax dealings.

Lucas has successfully helped many clients resolve tax debt and reach negotiation agreements with the IRS by utilizing the tax code. In two cases, Lucas’ clients were told they owed $100,000+ in unpaid taxes. For one client, Lucas argued a settlement with the IRS for $21,000 when the IRS claimed the original amount owed was $160,000, saving his client $139,000. Another client facing an IRS bill of $100,000 ultimately owed nothing after being represented by Lucas, and was even refunded monies previously paid to the IRS.

When Lucas is not practicing law, he enjoys traveling around Colorado with his wife, Michelle and their dog, Roxy.

Past results afford no guarantee of future results; each matter is different and must be judged on its own merits. Facts are those of an actual Robinson & Henry IRS case.
