About the Firm and Sharon R Rigby, esq

The Firm

  In representing clients - including those producing precious metals, energy fuels, geothermal resources, and industrial minerals - I have experience analyzing, researching, and resolving technical tax matters for over 3 decades.  I can be found in a hard hat and steel toe shoes inspecting a mining operation one day, and in a suit at a Board of Equalization or Tax Commission hearing the next day.  I have found that my clients truly appreciate the time and effort I put into every aspect of their tax matters, as well as the depth of knowledge I bring to the table.  I am here to help you succeed and that is something I don't take lightly.

  At Sharon R. Rigby, Attorney at Law, PLLC, I am here to listen to your needs and help you resolve your tax matters in a prompt and professional manner.
