Attorney at Law Lance R. Drury, a seasoned tax attorney renowned for his expertise and compassionate approach, expanded his practice to Texas earlier this year, solidifying his status as a key player in Southern tax law.

With the opening of a new office in San Antonio, Drury’s firm, Lance Drury Law, extended its comprehensive tax resolution services to the Lone Star State, adding to its established offices in St. Louis and Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, and Nashville, Tennessee.

A Legacy of Resilience and Expertise

Drury’s journey to becoming a prominent tax attorney is deeply rooted in his early life experiences and the influence of his family. Raised in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, Drury attributes much of his success to the guidance of his Great Aunt Ethel, and his parents.

Their lessons in integrity and resilience were instrumental in shaping his professional ethos. His father’s advice, “Don’t ever worry about being liked, worry about being respected, because with respect comes love,” is a cornerstone of his career.

Drury’s educational background further bolsters his expertise. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a minor in Economics from the University of Missouri-Columbia, a Juris Doctor from Southern Illinois University School of Law, and an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis.

Commitment to Clients and Community

What sets Drury apart in the field of tax law is his unwavering commitment to his clients. His approach is characterized by a meticulous, client-focused strategy: Drury begins each case with a thorough personal interview to understand the client’s unique situation, followed by developing a tailored plan of action.

By obtaining a Power of Attorney, Drury takes on all communications with the IRS, sparing his clients the stress of direct interactions. His process includes obtaining and reviewing IRS transcripts, preparing necessary documentation, and negotiating the lowest possible settlements.

A Vibrant and Youthful Outlook

Despite his extensive career, Drury maintains a spirited and youthful outlook on life. His personal journey, marked by resilience and a commitment to family values, has profoundly influenced both his life and career.

Overcoming early struggles with depression and discovering his passion for defending the marginalized during his time as a public defender shaped his empathetic approach to law. These experiences taught Drury the importance of resilience and seeking help when needed, which he now advises his clients to do when facing their own tax issues.

This journalist found Drury refreshingly spunky for his age of 70. When I asked him to comment on the topic, Drury shared, “My drive to assist others remains my guiding force. I start my day early to ensure I provide the best possible service, motivated by the joy of making a difference in my clients’ lives. I am dedicated to continuous learning and staying engaged with my work.”

It certainly must contribute to his youthful spirit and dynamic approach.
