Mike Goral joins Weaver as partner in the firm’s Dallas office where he will spearhead the firm’s state and local tax services division. 

Prior to Weaver, Goral worked at PwC as a director in the firm’s SALT practice where he was responsible for new business development and management of the Fort Worth, Austin and Little Rock markets. He also managed large engagements with various multistate tax matters involving income/franchise and sales/use taxes including corporate restructurings, audits, voluntary disclosure agreements, letter rulings, multistate compliance matters and reverse sales tax audits.
