About Attorney David N. Stonehill

David Stonehill, Attorney-at-Law
David Stonehill,

Need solid tax advice? Got a legal problem?

I'm David Stonehill, and I'm the problem solver, the go-to guy who saves you time and money.

I'm involved in all kinds of activities, the common thread being that I'm good at it, I enjoy doing it, I like the people I work with, and, most importantly, I like the people whom I help.

For 34 years, I have practiced law based in Cincinnati, Ohio. I am "of counsel" with the law firm of John E. Stillpass Co., LPA located in Blue Ash, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati. I work with a nationwide network of attorneys, CPAs and other professionals. This kind of practice would not be possible without secure Internet technologies and, as Hunter S. Thompson would call it, a "mojo wire," i.e., a simple fax machine.

I have this coast-to-coast federal income tax practice focusing on all aspects of the taxation of cancellation of debt income reported on IRS Form 1099-C. I maintain this comprehensive Web site (which is undergoing major updates over the next several months).

I advise clients from California to New Hampshire, Michigan to Florida about how to eliminate or minimize the impact of cancellation of debt income. CODI arises from the restructuring of debt, loan modification agreements, the disposition of bad real estate deals and the elimination of excessive personal debt. I frequently lecture on the topic.

In Ohio, I practice real estate, foreclosure and debtor/creditor law, I advise small businesses and start-ups. I negotiate real estate workouts and short sales. I help clients avoid the awful consequences of declaring bankruptcy. I doggedly defend homeowners against adverse foreclosure actions and volunteer at Cincinnati Legal Aid Society.
