ANDREW MILES, Director
Andrew (Drew) Miles, Esq., grew up working the in the family building supply business on Long Island, NY, which sparked his entrepreneurial spirit. He built a traditional law practice in NY State, is a member of both the New York State and Federal Bars and specialized in business structure and transactions. It was as a business owner that Drew began to see the flaws inherent in the "uninformed tax system." When he began to seek tax advice that could help optimize his practice’s cash flow, he was disappointed by what he found. Drew decided he could do the job as well as anyone – while also bringing a deeper level of strategic insight to bear – and so he began an intensive 10+ year examination of the IRS Tax Code and the power of proper entity structuring to build wealth and insure a financial legacy for future generations. Drew began to offer tax advisory services alongside his legal practice, eventually spinning the business off separately as Tax Saving Professionals, his current firm. Thanks to that extensive formal and informal education, his twenty- eight years of legal experience and thirty-five years of business experience, Tax Saving Professionals has thrived by helping more than 8,000 clients preserve over $750,000,000 in wealth since 1999.
