For the third straight year, Marty Dakessian is a Southern California Super Lawyer. After a successful run as equity partner at Global 20 law firm Reed Smith, Marty started his own firm in January dedicated to representing taxpayers in disputes with California tax agencies. There, he continues his mission to help his clients and hold the agencies accountable, and in the process, improve California's business climate--one taxpayer at a time. Marty's peers have taken note of his accomplishments and have nominated him to the Super Lawyer list since 2014. Each time, independent researchers have ratified his selection to the list and, in doing so, confirmed his leadership in this niche practice area.
