Jamie E. T. Szal


Jamie focuses her practice on assisting businesses in all aspects of state and local tax controversy, from regulatory and administrative proceedings through civil litigation.  In the wake of the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, in which Brann & Isaacson represented Wayfair, she also works with remote retailers of all sizes to evaluate their economic nexus profile, consider a sales and use tax collection action plan, and register with state and local tax authorities across the U.S.

Jamie came to Brann & Isaacson following several years at the Massachusetts Department of Revenue.  As Counsel in both the Litigation Bureau and Office of Appeals, Jamie focused on complex tax issues facing corporations and pass-through entities.  She earned her LL.M. in Taxation and Certificate in State and Local Taxation, both with distinction, from Georgetown University Law Center. Jamie is also trained in mediation.

Jamie is an active volunteer with the alumni network of her alma mater, Trinity College. She currently serves on the Board of Trustees and on Trinity’s Women’s Leadership Council, and has also served in various officer positions with the Trinity College Alumni Association Executive Committee and as an alumni oral argument coach.  Jamie also serves as President of the Board of Directors of Community Dental, a non-profit dental organization focused on making superior quality dental services available to all Mainers, especially those in need. Finally, Jamie serves on the Board of Directors of MothersEsquire, an international advocacy organization committed to supporting lawyers who are mothers in their professional ambitions. Outside of work, Jamie enjoys raising her fiercely independent, impish daughter; singing with the choir of the Episcopal Church of St. Mary (Falmouth, ME); exploring Down East and its many hiking trails with her husband, daughter, and dogs; and indulging in all things chocolate.
