Lechner Law Office, P.C. and The Lechner Group, Ltd. were formed by Paul Lechner, Esq. CPA to provide business owners and professionals specialized legal, tax and financial diligence solutions.

Paul received a Juris Doctor Degree in 1980 and subsequently a Graduate Tax Law Degree (LLM) in 1998. He also holds an MBA with a concentration in finance. His public accounting/audit background was gained as a Managing Director of KPMG LLP, one of the remaining "final four" big accounting firms.
