Mark Dutton, Esq., Owner

My entire professional life has focused on assisting people in improving their difficult financial situations. I first did this through working as an associate at one of the nation’s largest consumer bankruptcy law firms. I then founded Dutton & Associates, L.L.C., and continued my focus on consumer bankruptcy.

My focus changed to tax law upon partnering to form Kime Stork & Dutton, LLC. Tax law remains my focus today, following the 2011 establishment of my firm, Dutton Legal Group LLC.

I take great satisfaction in helping people navigate and overcome daunting financial circumstances. We aim to assist all people with tax problems who seek efficient, cost-effective representation and solutions.


Indiana attorneys are prohibited from having “specialties.” The following list provides Dutton Legal Group’s areas of practice, not to be construed as specialties.

Our firm focuses on assisting both individuals and businesses with tax problems. These tax problems can include balances owed to both/either the IRS or a state, tax garnishments/levies, and audits/examinations.

Let Us Help:

In our law practice, we serve to give you back your future.

With a tax problem hanging over your head, you can’t sleep, you can’t act, and you can’t plan. “Why should I work more when the IRS is just going to take everything?” This type of question, though typical, is depressing and robs you of your future.

Clients talk about constantly switching jobs, not having bank accounts, not accumulating savings, not having retirement accounts, not taking jobs with health insurance—all for fear of the IRS taking wages or assets. You should not and cannot live this way. You and your family are suffering because of it.

By resolving your tax debt, you are freed from this prison of inaction and limited possibilities, and the future you and your family deserve.

We are Indiana tax relief attorneys; yet unlike non-attorney tax resolution mills, we are not nameless, faceless or clueless. Dutton Legal Group is founded on our deep commitment to excellence, personalized client service, and accountability to those we serve.

As our client, you will come to recognize our voices over the phone and identify each member of our team if you drop into our office. We’ll know you. Everyone at our office knows exactly what is happening on each of our clients’ cases.

After all is said and done, tax problems are money problems. Plain and simple. If you had the money, you would have handled the problem when it arose. We have been helping people and their businesses overcome financial problems for over 10 years. Hire us and you get the fruits of our labor, improving not just your tax situation, but your overall financial situation. And that’s a big part of your future.

We take great pride in resolving cases. It’s personal for us. We want to help you.


I have a feeling I know why you’re reading this right now.

You need more time in your day. Running a business is extremely demanding and there just isn’t enough time in the day to keep all the plates from spinning out of control. What you need most right now is more proactive help with your business finances and tax strategy. As soon as possible. In fact, yesterday would have been ideal. Am I close?

We get it. We’ve worked with plenty of businesses who have to cobble together 9 different software programs to keep everything straight, or who just wash their hands of it all and put everything on the credit card … and then try to clean up every year after the fact. And they know that this is no way to properly monitor profit margins, cash controls, account management, tax strategy and all of the myriad components of an effective financial system for a business.

Perhaps this is your story too. Or perhaps you’ve reached a stage of development in your business that you want to pass the baton of accounting to another skillful team so your experieced team can focus on what they do best: making sales and taking care of customers.

Or are you just starting your business and want to begin on the right foot?

Whatever the reason, we want you to know that our team has been diligently and effectively taking care of the accounting needs of countless organizations in a wide variety of industries—discreetly and adeptly handling the ongoing financial management of tax burdens, payroll, bookkeeping, and other comprehensive accounting services while providing proficiency in business planning, coaching, and strategic consulting that many businesses need.

Because here’s a certain truth as it relates to taxes and your business: The State and Federal Government would love to have more of your business’s hard-earned money in their accounts. And yes, even though it’s painful, none of us begrudge paying our legal and fair share of taxes. But the problem is that regular business owners, like you, are missing out on legal and safe deductions to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed refunds every year.

It doesn’t have to be this way. You don’t have to hand more dollars over to the government than they require just because you don’t know their rules as well as they do. You don’t have to live in a constant state of anxiety over the state of your books, feeling guilty about the time you should be devoting to keeping your business profitable.

In fact, to help you find answers to your questions, I’ve compiled some resources in the last couple of years for business people like you in response to the specific tax and accounting questions I’ve received from my clients.
