The inaugural list recognizes top leaders in the field who serve as a mentor to others and promote inclusive practices in the workplace.

Debra is widely recognized for her experience in state and local taxation. Debra counsels clients with respect to multistate corporate income and franchise taxes, utility taxes, unincorporated business taxes, sales and use taxes, gross receipts taxes, excise taxes on real property transfers, rent and occupancy taxes, withholding taxes and residence and other personal income tax matters, from both a planning and an audit and controversy viewpoint and on complex transactions. In 2022, Debra was elected as a Fellow of the American College of Tax Counsel, an honor reserved for those leaders who have made an exceptional contribution to the profession.

Debra is an inspiring leader in the firm. She encourages partners and colleagues alike to be zealous advocates for clients, always prioritizing clients’ needs above all. Debra argues fiercely on each client’s behalf, using established precedent and novel interpretations developed from her detailed knowledge of New York City and New York State tax law and regulations.
