We specialize in solving tax problems! 

Has the IRS sent you notices, placed a lien on your properties, levied your bank accounts, revoked your passport, or garnished your wages? These can be stressful events and contacting the IRS has become a serious challenge. Even if you can get through their hold times to speak to a live person, navigating the conversation yourself can have many pitfalls. We vigorously represent taxpayers with authority and defend their rights to negotiate the best outcome possible.

Our Commitment: 

We genuinely care about representing the best interests of our clients and putting their minds at ease. We are committed to thoroughly analyzing every factor in your situation to determine potential remedies to any tax problems that have occurred while maintaining strict confidentiality. We will be up-front and honest about the issues you may be facing, the costs of any services we may offer, and any expectations related to our process of tax problem resolution. We are responsive and your phone calls and emails will be returned timely, if not addressed immediately.
