necessary to successfully represent clients involved in IRS litigation, IRS audits, collection matters, and criminal
My years of working as an auditor and forensic accountant, coupled with my tax background, allow me to come up with creative
strategies to solve IRS tax problems. I have defended individuals and businesses involved in the most challenging state and
federal tax controversies.
Although an IRS problem may seem insurmountable and never-ending at times, they can frequently be solved with a well thought
out strategy. Often times, achieving a successful outcome in an IRS case hinges upon the discretion of the individuals who are
assigned to the case within the IRS.
As a lawyer who exclusively practices in the area of tax controversies, I understand the need for balancing an aggressive
approach with the need for developing a strong rapport with the assigned agent. This balance allows me to achieve excellent
outcomes for my clients, while protecting them from potential catastrophes.
I frequently handle complex cases in the following areas: IRS examination, IRS tax levy, tax lien, wage garnishment,
collection due process hearing, collection appeal, offer in compromise, requests for penalty abatement, payroll tax
delinquencies, trust fund recovery penalties, foreign bank account reporting requirements (FBAR) and allegations of
white collar crime including money laundering, currency structuring, willful failure to file, and willful failure to pay.
Though I represent taxpayers throughout the U.S. and abroad, my main office is located in Columbia, Maryland, part of
the Washington D.C. metro area. I also have established locations for meeting clients in Baltimore, Maryland and the
Eastern Shore of Maryland. Other locations outside of the State include: Las Vegas, Nevada, Austin, Texas, Houston, Texas,
and Richmond, Virginia. In many instances, it is not necessary to meet with clients in person, as communication by phone,
fax, or E-mail may be more than sufficient.
I hope the information I have compiled on this website is helpful for you to gain an understanding of the common
