There are few aspects of our daily lives that are not affected in some way by tax laws. Whether involving income, sales of personal and real property, gifts, or estates, our system of taxation has a far-reaching impact.

Tax attorneys can assist clients in effectively planning to minimize both individual and business income taxes, as well as estate and gift taxes. Assistance can also be provided by means of preparing tax returns and other compliance-oriented matters. In addition, tax attorneys represent their clients in disputes involving the IRS and other taxing authorities.

One of the firm's attorneys is also a Certified Public Accountant (inactive). He and one other attorney at the firm have experience as members of the tax departments of two of the world's largest accounting firms.
