San Francisco Tax Attorney: Meet Ravi Dhaddey
After a successful 20-year career in the nation's top accounting firms, Ravi Dhaddey made the bold decision to opt out in order to launch his own firm, GoldPoint Law Group.
He wants to provide the same high quality, highly innovative and efficient services of top tier firms to clients who can't afford or don't want to pay the top tier fees.
How does he manage to lower client fees?
GoldPoint is an entirely new type of firm with no partners, no billable-hour frenzy, and no pricey overhead. Clients pay only attorney fees.
What does that mean?
It means clients are always in control. You come in for a free, one hour consultation -- or, chat with Ravi on the phone. After discussing your case, you and Ravi agree on a set price for the project. For ongoing projects, you both agree on a set hourly attorney fee.
What's Ravi like?
He's accessible, proactive and smart. He partners with his clients, keenly listening to their goals in order to provide expert tax & legal council and sound steps of action. He aggressively protects you and your assets.
What's more, he's calm. At a time when you may be anxious and fearful, his confident, take-control demeanor will immediately bring you relief.
Confidence comes from experience.
Before Ravi founded GoldPoint, he worked at Deloitte in the Private Equity Mergers and Acquisitions department.
He performed tax due diligence, structuring for mergers and strategic acquisitions. He also advised clients on modeling forecasts, tax-free and taxable dispositions of assets or stock, highly leveraged buyouts, management buyouts and recapitalizations, initial public offering, divestitures and spinoffs and executive compensation issues. For his major private equity client, he drafted an international tax operations manual, which spanned 11 countries with all their various and differing laws.
Prior to Deloitte, Ravi worked at PriceWaterhouseCoopers in their Mergers and Acquisitions and Corporate Tax department. At PWC, he reviewed tax provisions under FAS 109, advised his clients on the validity of their internal tax controls under Sarbanes-Oxley Act Section 404. He also reviewed federal and state tax returns for corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships and individuals. He was in charge of performing tax due diligence for strategic clients, reviewing merger agreements as well as reviewing partnership and joint venture agreements.
Furthermore, Ravi has drafted and reviewed Research & Development Credit Studies as well as Transfer Pricing Studies.
Ravi also worked in the tax department at MyCFO. There, he structured efficient tax strategies for high-net worth individuals and their entities. He also prepared and evaluated individual, partnership, private foundation, gift tax and corporation tax returns. He analyzed the prepared financial statements, developed income, investment and estate planning strategies for high net worth individuals.
After graduating with an LL.M., his successful 20-year long career in the big accounting firms began at Ernst & Young.

“I originally hired GoldPoint Law Group to do legal work for me. I own several pharmacies and have a thriving business that I want to expand. Right away, I was deeply impressed with how GoldPoint took care of me. On several occasions, Ravi Dhaddey personally came down to Fremont to see me about the work. He sat with me at one of my pharmacies while we talked. He was professional, expedient, and thorough. I didn't have to play telephone tag with him or email and call him several times just to get his attention. He made me feel like I was his only client. I have to admit that when the invoice came for his services, I worried that I'd end up paying highly for such special service. But even there GoldPoint was very fair to me. I was so impressed with the firm's work and attention that I ended up giving the firm more and more work over the next eight months. I now rely on GoldPoint for most all my legal and tax needs.”

“I was with another tax attorney for close to 30 years. That guy took several weeks to answer my phone calls -- and that's if he ever called me back. You would think that after so many years of loyalty I would have received better service and attention. It's a hard move to suddenly switch lawyers or tax accountants. It's like being in a relationship and suddenly ending it. But at some point you've got to realize that it's business. And if your needs and goals aren't being met properly, you've got to take your business elsewhere. With GoldPoint, I've never had a problem. My phone calls are returned promptly. Ravi has come down to meet me at my office to personally discuss my concerns. And when September rolls around, I'm no longer taking time away from my business to call my tax accountant. Instead, someone from the firm is after me to start getting my accounting in order. Knowing that GoldPoint has the nuts and bolts covered gives me the peace of mind I need to focus on my business.”

“GoldPoint Law Group was referred to me by my bankruptcy attorney. Initially, I hired Ravi Dhaddey only to do my taxes. I own two houses and work full-time yet I wasn't able to keep up with the mortgages.
After going through all my finances, Ravi was not only able to guide me on how best to proceed with my taxes but he gave me the best news I'd had in a long time. He showed me that I had enough means so that I wouldn't need to file for bankruptcy. He not only saved me the thousands of dollars I was going to pay my bankruptcy attorney but also the heartache of having to file. Thank you, GoldPoint Law Group and a special thank you to Ravi!”
