“Time was of the essence (less than 48 hours) in obtaining a tax opinion letter to support the discharging of my federal and state income taxes when an Offer In Compromise was involved in a Ch. 7 filing. After talking with John Faucher, he understood my situation and provided the necessary tax opinion in time for me to file my Ch. 7 bankruptcy...John Faucher ‘saved the day’ for me.”

“John is extremely knowledgeable and has a very calming demeanor which helped so much when it came time to actually go to court. I would highly recommend John Faucher!”
– Nancy N., Yelp Reviews

“Mr. Faucher knew the procedural steps, how to affect them and he was familiar with the quirks, style, and mindset of the judge that decided the case. I would recommend Mr. Faucher as an excellent attorney in the area of Bankruptcy Law.”
– Carol Koziol

“John Faucher and his team helped me through a personal bankruptcy situation in 2012. They were extremely professional, helpful and kind during the process. They made things very easy for me, being able to do most of the gathering of data online and then representing the communication with the trustees. I have no hesitation to recommend their services.”
– Duncan Turner, M.D

“You have a way with explaining difficult concepts in a down-to-earth manner. Thank you for talking with me today and giving me another perspective on the new homestead exemption. I learned a ton! Continued success to you, your newsletter, staff, the famous chickens and Sebstian! Thank you again.”

“My wife and I had received a payment demand letter from the IRS.  We were in shock.  I have been doing our taxes for Federal and State using TurboTax and never had a problem.  For the tax year of 2020 TurboTax went to Windows 10.  My wife and I are 85 years old and I could not master Windows 10.  For the first time in my life I had H&R Block do our taxes.  I then discovered that I was a victim of identity theft.  I decided we needed the help of a Tax Attorney.  I selected Mr. Faucher from the Thousand Oaks/Westlake list of tax attorneys because it felt right.  My feelings and my wife’s feelings, after having an opportunity to meet Mr. Faucher, his kind and gentle guidance was calming and reassuring for both me and my wife. We are following his guidance.  I know that if IRS keeps refusing to recognize our Identity Theft information we have a rock who can take us thru the hard stuff in Mr. Faucher.  Thank you and bless you.”

John's Report Card

There are rare times in life when a professional interaction greatly exceeds expectations and I was fortunate to have this occur late on a Friday when I was least expecting it. John D. Faucher made excellent use of his time (and mine) by quickly and efficiently asking pertinent questions on my IRS matter to understand my situation and then in a structured, methodical way explaining how my original, intended solution was not optimal and redirecting me to a different approach. His obvious depth of experience and assured nature gave me confidence to move forward on my matter which I and look forward to my weekend knowing I had addressed a nagging problem that had been on my mind for a long time. Though my interaction was brief I could not recommend John more highly. I don't wish for future tax challenges but if I ever find myself in need of additional tax related support John's number is safely in my phone loaded and ready to share with friends and colleagues.

“Working with Mr. Faucher renewed my faith in the legal profession and left me with the feeling that the legal system can actually provide an equitable outcome for the individual.”
– Donald, client in bankruptcy with tax issues, Avvo Reviews

“John Faucher was a major help to me in fighting off the tentacles of a bank trying to attach all my assets in a commercial foreclosure action. He provided clear guidance and counsel. In the end, the bank was able to take only the property in foreclosure. Mr. Faucher also provided clear guidance in setting up a family trust. I appreciate Mr. Faucher’s sense of morals and justice in both of these actions.”
– Paul Wendland

“Hi John, just wanted to share – as of Friday we are new home owners! M. and I appreciate ALL the work and responsiveness to my file – it was truly appreciated. Like we said – once we repave cement, your initials are going to etched in stone. Thanks again.”
– D. & M. (bankruptcy clients)
