Caitlin M. Wong brings her passion for tax law and her commitment to empowering others to her practice at Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP. Caitlin has experience with all aspects of both federal and state taxation, including tax planning for companies as well as individuals, audits, appeals, tax court litigation, estate planning and trust and estate litigation. Her diverse practice history enables her with an ability to identify and address possible issues before they have a chance to develop into real problems. She is admitted to practice in Oregon, Washington, and the U.S. Tax Court.

State and federal taxation was what originally sparked Caitlin’s desire to practice law. Over the last several years, she has been involved in tax disputes focusing on tax issues faced by LLCs, S-Corporations, and individuals including collection defenses and alternatives, valuation disputes, and state tax issues such as Oregon property tax, residency, and compliance with Washington’s business and occupation tax and sales tax. Caitlin has also represented clients in probate and trust disputes, including contested probate claims, proceedings against trustees and personal representatives, and modification, dissolution, or reformation of trust agreements.

Caitlin graduated cum laude from Lewis & Clark Law School. Prior to joining SYK, Caitlin had experience as an associate at Schwabe Williamson & Wyatt P.C. and at Black Helterline LLP. Her practice was focused and honed in the areas of taxation, business, and estate planning and administration, as well as trust and estate litigation.

Born in Portland, Caitlin has been a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest. She graduated magna cum laude from Pacific Lutheran University, where she earned her B.A. in Economics and Accounting. She obtained her LL.M. in taxation from the University of Denver. In her free time, Caitlin enjoys soccer, reading, and spending time with her two cats.
