We Provide Individual — Personalized — Solutions
The area of tax law is complex, and therefore your tax situation is not a simple matter that can be handled by just anyone. You need a representative who is an experienced tax attorney. Hiring the wrong professional will waste your time and money in the best case, and in the worst case, it will make your situation worse.
You may have seen advertisements for tax mills, tax masters and others that say they will resolve your tax issues at a low price. It is important to know that these advertisers are not attorneys — they hire inexperienced workers at bottom-line wages and entrust them to handle your important, sensitive matter. In the majority of cases, it just doesn’t work. These companies are interested in volume; they are not interested in obtaining a great result. Further, the information you share with them can be revealed to the IRS or state tax authorities. If you hire a tax attorney, the information you divulge to him or her is protected by attorney-client privilege.
