Here is what some of our clients had to say:

It Was Refreshing

For years the fear of tax debt was a reality. We put it off time and time again only to realize that it needed to be addressed. We searched for a reputable company to assist us and without any doubt contacted Lance and his team. From day one my wife and I were treated with respect, professional discretion and like family. It was refreshing and comforting to know that I had a tax attorney that had the experience and drive to resolve my issue in the most financially responsible way. Thank you, Lance and the team. If you are considering resolving your tax burden I HIGHLY suggest giving Lance and his team the chance to help you.

-Dustin, Missouri

Such a Relief to Talk with You!

I would like to thank you for all the work you did for my husband and I to resolve our tax issues. I tried to work with the IRS on my own for more than two years and just continued to receive larger settlement offers that were impossible to meet. By the time I contacted you I was so stressed and afraid I would never be able to resolve our issues.

It was such a relief to talk with you and turn everything over to you to handle. Even thought it took time to resolve, you were very helpful and encouraging during the long process. I learned that it is never a good idea to work with the IRS alone. Your knowledge and professionalism were instrumental in resolving our tax issues.

I will recommend your services to anyone facing the same issues we had. Thank you for your patience with us and for your hard work. Please let Liz know how much we appreciate her for always taking our calls. She is a wonderful asset to your firm.

-Pam, St. Louis, Missouri

IRS Fiasco!

In July of 2013, my husband passed away, an untimely passing and I became a widow long before I expected. I had been ill for quite some time prior to his death and I feel that he was trying to shield me from the IRS fiasco. After learning of the overwhelming facts of our indebtedness, becoming a widow unexpectedly and being confined to a wheelchair it became exhausting and depressing. During that time, someone suggested that I contact Lance Drury. I called and schedule an appointment with him at his Columbia office and thereby retained his services. That entire situation with the IRS was so embarrassing to me. Thankfully, Lance got right to work on my case. It took a bit longer than we expected because of the IRS tactics but Lance was determined to secure a settlement, which he ultimately did.

I would like to express my sincerest appreciation to Lance and his staff for their absolute determination to resolve the matter. Everyone is professional, helpful and respectful. I will be forever grateful and completely satisfied with the outstanding results of this problem at the worst time of life Hoo-ah!!!

Stood His Ground!

As a working citizen in the state of Missouri, I fell behind in the past on paying my federal taxes. The IRS took note of this and took a strong stand in accepting my payments as time went by. But what I sent was not enough for them and as a result, they took multiple paychecks from me.

I lost everything I owned, my home, land and car. If my parents had not been there for me, I’d be homeless and hungry.

I needed help badly and after reading some of Lance Drury’s brochures, I decided to give him a call. One the best decisions that I could have made. The IRS really gave Lance a hard time, but he was able to stand his ground and hold his own on defending me in every way. And with his help, I am now able to stand tall and take on problems head on day by day. I now know that my hard-earned paycheck will be there every month. Thank you, Lance!

– Julie, Maries County, Missouri

Saved Me A Lot of Money!

Lance Drury and his staff did a great job! He was able to save me a lot of money. I thought I could handle the IRS on my own, unfortunately they wouldn’t give me the time of day. Lance answered all my questions in a timely manner.

– Rick, O’Fallon, Missouri

I Must Commend Mr. Drury!

I must commend Mr. Drury on his ability to resolve my tax situation in a timely manner. I have had tax issues for years and tried three different tax resolution companies to no avail. One of them only took my money, another one got terms I could, absolutely, not afford. The last strung me out over three and half years and could never get a resolution I could afford and was charging me to the tune of $500.00 a month! Finally, I hard Mr. Drury’s radio advertisement and through, “what do I have to lose?” I am elated to say, Lance as able to get me a resolution I had been requesting in only six months! Thank so much!

– Kevin, St. Louis, Missouri

Couldn’t Find Help or A Way Out!

I was having trouble with my past tax debt and I couldn’t find help nor a way out. My husband heard an ad on the radio one day for the law offices of Lance Drury, he though he sounded like what I needed, so he wrote the phone number down and I called to set up an appointment. I was apprehensive about the first meeting, but those fears went away as soon as I met Mr. Drury, he was very kind and reassuring and he made me feel at ease from the start. He listened to all my problems and concerns and was very honest about his ability to help me. He explained that there were three ways to handle these issues, they were low cost, medium cost and high-end cost. After a complete review of all the material he said that I did not need the high end or low end but that the middle option would be perfect for me. He was very honest and did not try to sell me the high end which he very well could have, and I would not have questioned his advice. Mr. Drury and his team of tax professional handled everything for me and filed all the paperwork and forms. Mr. Drury go most of the tax debt removed and set up a reasonable repayment plan with the IRS. I now have no more worries, no more phone calls or letters from the IRS. I highly recommend Mr. Lance Drury and his team of professional if you need any tax help, he is honest, and his opinions doesn’t make you feel like it’s your fault. So, get yourself some rest and peace of mind, call Mr. Drury!

– Nancy, St. Louis, Missouri

I Want to Express My Gratitude!

I want to express my gratitude for all of your help with my IRS tax issues. Yourself and your staff have been extremely accommodating thru the whole process. It’s been quite a relief to finally put the IRS harassment to rest. I am very pleased with the outcome in my case. Once again, thank you so much for your service.

– Phil, Columbia, Missouri

Took On My Very Difficult Situation!

Mr. Drury agreed to take on my very difficult situation without hesitation. My mother has passed away and unknown to me she had some considerable tax issues from some inheritance form one of her siblings. I found this out when I tried to sell her home which I had purchased for her but titled in both of our names. With the existing mortgage on the home plus the cost to sell it there would be zero money left over to satisfy any of the tax liens that had been placed on the home. I had called at least 20 different people at the Missouri Department of Revenue looking for assistance on how to best handle this problem. Their only response was to pay her back taxes. On every call, I explained and demonstrated that there was zero dollars in her estate and there was no way this could happen to which they said my options were to pay, hold the house and keep paying the mortgage, or let the house go and damage my own credit. Mr. Drury in only a couple of weeks times was able to reach into the DOR and find a way to get the liens released from the home so it could be sold. He saved my family a lot of money and heartache. I would absolutely recommend Lance Drury to anyone dealing with tax problems.

– Pete, St. Louis, Missouri

I would call you first.

Thank you and your staff for accomplishing what four other tax law firms and one CPA firm could not. After wasting several years and too much money, I brought my tax problem to your firm. The main difference was that your firm listened to the problem and understood what needed to be done. All previous “experts” tried to solve it using their standard approach that was used with everyone.

If I were to need assistance again in the future, I would call you first.

– Rich, St. Louis, Missouri

Lance Is The Best!

My wife found Lance and thank goodness, she did! After years of back and forth with the IRS, handled mostly on my own, things took a serious turn. From our first meeting, his candor and straightforward manner inspired confidence. Further, compared with some of the big “national firms” that had contacted me, his fees were fair and reasonable.

Once Lance took over we didn’t have to give our tax matters a second thought – he handled everything. Most important, the final outcome was better than we could have hoped for. We have complete faith in Lance and give him our unqualified thanks and endorsement.

– Michael, St. Louis, Missouri

Short Note on How Pleased I am!

Lance, this is just a short note to let you know how pleased I am with the outcome of my case. Your firm has saved me a considerable amount of hard earned money with the IRS. My sincere thanks go to you and your firm.

– Peter, St. Louis, Missouri

Highly Recommend To Anyone!

Lance has the knowledge and persistence required to get the job done! I would highly recommend him to anyone. He and his staff took a big burden off my shoulders. They were always there to answer any and all questions and we’re very quick and getting back to me. They have never made me feel ashamed for the mess that I had gotten into with the IRS. Some of the most professional and friendly people I have ever met. Thank you, Lance Drury, and all of your staff for a job well done.

– Ron, Bonne Terre, Missouri

I Will Never Forget You!

I was overwhelmed and embarrassed to ask Mr. Drury for help with my tax situation. Mr. Drury is honest, polite and to the point, I needed that. What a fine job Mr. Drury and his wonderful staff did for me. Mr. Drury, Erica and Terri are the best! Don’t wait to long, like I did, to ask Mr. Drury for help. Saying thank you isn’t good enough.

– Terry, Farmington, Missouri

I had a Federal Income Tax lien against me for $32,539 for unpaid income taxes dating back to the tax year 2000.

Previously, I had been working with a tax professional who told me he could get my tax obligation reduced to $500 and the tax lien would be eliminated. On May 5th, 2016, I filed an Offer in Compromise (OIC) with the IRS and went through the process.

On January 6th, 2017, I received a rejection letter from the IRS for my offer of $500. They said they would agree to a settlement of $14,902.60 for the full amount of the tax lien. I was, also informed if I didn’t agree with that I had a certain time frame to file an appeal.

At this point, I decided to call Lance Drury to see if through this was all I could do. After my initial meeting with him I was convinced that if I turned this matter over to him I would get a fair and complete deal.

He investigated my entire tax situation and filed the appeal. He asked for detailed information the first tax professional didn’t. He dug into every penny of my expenses and assets. After much negotiating with the IRS he got results. On May 24th, 2017, I received a letter from the IRS accepting my OIC for $500 and I could even make payments. I had initially paid them $100 to file and sent them the balance of $400 to put this whole nightmare to rest.

Thanks, Lance, for your expertise and help in resolving this for me. My fee to you was money well spent.

– Greg, O’Fallon, Missouri


Thanks again Lance. Going for $79,000 owed to outcome of case closed non-collectible status is unbelievable. I will always call you and tell anyone I know who needs help.

– Bill, Fulton Missouri

I thought that I could handle the IRS without professional help. That bad decision cost me additional time and money. Then, I made a great decision; I contacted Lance Drury. He sat down with me to evaluate my case, and then Lance and his great staff (especially Liz) stood between the IRS and me. I have high praise for Lance’s professional work and also for his sincerer concern to help.

– Larry Connors, Former KMOV-TV Anchor, St. Louis, Missouri

To be honest with you, I first tired another attorney. After several month, nothing was done except for the amount that he wanted me to pay the IRS. When I sat down and talk with you, you told me that you would do what you could to help me out. You never promised me that the IRS would not come after me, but you gave me hope. After several letters and a couple of seat and meets, you have really put my mind at ease. Not only did you keep the IRS from coming after me, you got it to where the IRS will not seize anything I have. You really put my mind and wallet at ease. I really appreciate everything you have done for me. If anyone asks me for an excellent tax attorney, your name will be the offered. Again, I wish to thank you for everything you have done for me.

– Robert, St. Louis, Missouri

I had a tax issue and the situation was stressful to say the least. I did not know what to do and feared receiving notifications every day from the IRS. I met with Lance Drury and instantly felt my level of stress diminish. Lance Drury went to work and within a short period of time was able to resolve the tax issue. I really did not have to do anything but provide the basic information Lance Drury needed and he took care of the rest. Lance Drury is a wonderful attorney who promised me that he would “take care of me” and he did. I would recommend Lance Drury to anyone having a tax issue.

– Anthony, St. Louis, Missouri

Lance very quickly put our minds at ease, no more nightmares, no more sleepless nights. Lance was able to take care of our tax problems quickly, and kept us informed all through the process. We are grateful and thankful for friends like Lance.

– Joe, High Ridge, Missouri

I went through a devastating divorce six years ago and when you lose a second income the most important thing you need to do is keep a roof over your head and your stomach full. But that does not keep the IRS “wolf” away from your door when you owe back taxes. I was, and still am, in the legal profession, but there was no where I could turn in regard to my taxes in arrears. I ignored various notices from the IRS, and just hoped that it would go away, but unfortunately they did not. I had to sign for numerous US Mail notices that I had to pick up at the post office and reply to. I did not reply to them, and like all of us in tax situations, we just fooled ourselves and hoped that they would go away. But they don’t.

That is when I heard an ad on the radio about Lance Drury Law Firm. I took a chance and called him, set up an appointment and personally met with him in his Sunset Hills office. He made me feel that I was his only client and being in the legal field, you hardly get this experience with numerous attorneys. But he made me feel that I had nothing to worry about from that moment on. And I was right, I turned over all the recent documents that I had, and it seems that all I had to do was sit back and wait.

Yes, there were some paperwork to fill out, and many emails between myself, and his able staff, but as I look back on it, it was all worth every minute that I spent on those documents and forms I had to fill out. To keep my story short, my burden has been lifted, and I owe it all to Mr. Lance Drury, Esq. He is a very caring man and attorney, and his accolades, and recent recognitions from the Tax Resolution of Tax Attorneys, he deserves those kudos and more. To me it was money well spent, and he has taken care of me, and I can wake up now without the first items on my mind, of how I am going to deal with the IRS.

If you don’t at least meet with Mr. Drury, at least let him set up a plan for you, then you aren’t wasting your time, and the IRS is going to win. And believe me, they are relentless. Call Mr. Drury and the weight will be lifted. He does everything he states in his ads, and does them with excellence. Trust me…

George and I appreciate your work on our behalf with the IRS. You were always courteous and diligent even though the IRS changed agents on us several times and did not always respond in a timely manner.

In addition, you and your assistants always treated us with respect and answered our questions thoroughly and quickly.

Most importantly, you were successful on our behalf. The outcome was that we had zero tax liability and could put this weighty matter behind us.

We highly recommend you to potentials clients.

Thank you!

I am writing to thank you for all you did for me in regards to my IRS issues. The help you gave me has turned my life around and allowing me to start fresh. Thank you is not sufficient to let you know how grateful I am for all that you did. You are truly a Superman!!!

Prior to with Mr. Lance Drury, I was under a tremendous amount of stress regarding my tax problems. It was even affecting my health. After our consultation, Lance got right to work, keeping me well informed along the way. He has helped me tremendously and has lifted a large weight off my shoulders. Thank you for all of the hard work.

– Emily,

What Lance and his team were able to accomplish was nothing short of a miracle for me and my family. In a world of instant gratification, which is a trend, Lance promised me everything was going to be ok, that he would see us through this. We had doubts. He and his staff reassured every time we met. It was more than ok, with more work than we would have ever dreamed of, on our part, because you think when you hire someone that they do it for you. In this case, Lance had to guide us through the mountain of paperwork and, having it accurate and on time. We could never have done this without him and his staff. His staff was and is so caring and patient when we were having our melt downs. They treated us, as Lance did, with care, understanding, respect and compassion. They shared our tears and fears, and for this, we will forever be grateful and thankful. Our life is better just by having met them. We can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us. Then again, one way I can think of is to keep up with our payments and be a reflection of your work and your word.

I was impressed and was given hope!

When a person is in default to the IRS, life becomes miserable. I know that first-hand. I know the guilt and shame. I know the stress that it creates in the family. I know the darkness of the tunnel as light never seems to penetrate that darkness. That all changed when a friend of mine told me about Lance Drury. I made a contact and received information that gave me an introduction and background of Mr. Drury. I was impressed and was given hope. With all of the fliers I received in the mail trying to “help me” I was confused and distrusting. Mr. Drury is different. He does not send out “official looking” mailings. He is not an “ambulance chaser” from a distant state. He is in Missouri and serves clients only in Missouri. His business is built only by word-of-mouth.

Mr. Drury cautions those in the situation that you do not want to face the IRS alone. He is right. He was able to negotiate a settlement agreement at a significantly lower rate than I could ever imagine.

There is a light coming through. I am walking a path to a new life that will be free from phone calls, certified letters and all of the other factors that created grief in my personal and professional life.

If you are reading this, you have come to Mr. Drury’s website because you are searching for a way out of your predicament. There is a way through it all and I trust you will find a happy ending as I did.

What a blessing, in less than 9 months, Lance has helped get resolution with the IRS!

After years of worry and concern as to how in the world I would ever be able to get out of this mess with the IRS, I was fortunate enough to come in contact with Mr. Lance Drury and staff. What a blessing, in less than 9 months, Lance has helped get resolution with the IRS for me…the rest now is up to me to stay current. How can I ever say Thank You….

– Mark
Benton, Missouri

When I was attempting to handle the IRS issues myself the mental load was astounding! I was about to start taking anti-depressants! I know it is illogical and irrational but the IRS caused me the same kind of fear that the Boogey Man does to little children. I couldn’t sleep, I was anxious all the time. I felt like there was always someone looking over my shoulder. As soon as I hired Lance to handle the IRS it was like the weight of the world was removed from my shoulders. Lance reassured me that we can handle the IRS and then he did! I can breathe easier now.

– Debbie
Rolla, Missouri

I really like what Lance was able to do for me. I could never achieve these results myself. I went from being up nights worrying when the other show would drop to being confident that my situation was in capable hands. Not only did Lance relieve my stress and solve problems but I now understand how I even got in the situation in the first place and how to avoid it in the future.

The most valued member of your team is YOU-my ATTORNEY! I am confident our tax negotiations were handled in a professional manner to benefit our company’s bottom line. I feel there is a lot of pride and honesty in the work done… I always know you will keep me on track.

– Mary
Desoto, Missouri

I first met with Lance Drury in May 2009 regarding my tax situation. I tried to work with the IRS on my own, even hired another tax professional to help but kept getting settlement offers that was not possible for me to meet. Mr. Drury got started right away and in a few months negotiated an installment plan that I knew I would be able to afford. Mr. Drury and Linda were there whenever I had a question or concerns-which there were several and never acted like my questions or concerns were not important. I could never have made it thru without the professional and caring help from Lance Drury. Thank you so much.

– David
St. Louis, Missouri

I think Lance is terrific! He was very thoughtful and great at giving me the information to understand and negotiate my tax debt. Lance is a very good listened he really understands what is most important to me.
