Woodland Hills Attorney To Defend Criminal Tax Issues

When special agents of the IRS visit your home or place of business, or when you find that your tax matter has been referred to the IRS' Criminal Investigation division, you need the counsel of a defense attorney right now. Charges of tax fraud and tax evasion expose you to the risk of a lengthy prison sentence and other collateral consequences that can cause permanent damage to your personal and professional lives.

These serious matters cannot be effectively handled by a CPA (as no attorney-client privilege exists) or by an attorney who does not regularly practice in this area, so your choice of a legal advocate is exceptionally important.

Our Criminal Tax Defense Practice

We have the resources and insight needed to provide you with aggressive defense against all types of tax crime charges. We defend individuals and entities that are being investigated for:

  • Tax fraud
  • Tax evasion
  • Failure to file a tax return
  • Filing false statements or supporting documents
  • Removal or concealment of financial information
  • Failure to supply information requested by the government
  • Fraudulent withholding/exemptions
  • Omnibus clause violations
  • Offshore accounting issues

Even if the specific action being examined by the IRS does not fall into the categories listed above, it is vital to contact us if you find yourself the subject of any tax-related investigation. We have negotiated reasonable resolutions for many clients involved in alleged tax schemes leading to criminal charges. In many cases, criminal tax penalties can be avoided altogether by involving an experienced tax fraud lawyer at the early stages of a tax controversy.
