About the Practice
Since leaving the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") and entering the private practice of law, I have devoted my professional career to representing clients involved in IRS audits, collection matters, and criminal investigations.  I have defended individuals and businesses embroiled in the most challenging federal tax controversies.  I lead a team of attorneys, enrolled agents, former IRS Officers, paralegals, and support staff that are ready and able to assist with any IRS issue.    

While it must be noted that cases and the results obtained are unique, in past civil engagements, my clients have been relieved of many millions of dollars in proposed and assessed obligations to the IRS.  In criminal cases, clients facing lengthy periods of incarceration have avoided prison time.  My knowledge of IRS procedures, years of experience in tax controversy matters, and tenacity have prevented catastrophes from occurring and resulted in favorable outcomes for my clients.  See Prior Engagements
