To a licensed tax attorney who is based in Dallas, but who is perfectly capable of dealing with clients anywhere in the state of Texas, a large part of my job as counsel is to reduce the stress and confusion that most people feel when dealing with the IRS. When clients are asked to describe me, some of their most common descriptors include "hardworking" and "honest," but they also praise me for my skills as an attorney. I am aware that there are a great many companies out there willing to promise relief of all sorts of tax problems, but few of them have his level of legal skill.

A member of the State Bar of Texas and the Dallas Bar Association, I have been practicing law since 1981. I am licensed to practice in United States Tax Court, as well as in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and in U.S. District Courts throughout Texas. In nearly four decades as a Texas tax attorney, I have seen firsthand how good people can get caught up in serious tax problems. 

Perhaps you filed your tax return late or you failed to file at all last year or for several years. When the IRS sends you a letter telling you that you have been delinquent and possibly demanding that you pay additional taxes or penalties in order to prevent them from filing a lien on your home or other assets, or threatening to garnish your wages or a bank account, you need someone on your side with the legal expertise to be able to get through every aspect of the IRS process, including tax audits, hearings, appeals or even tax litigation.

When you face the potential consequences of IRS action, you need the best and most experienced tax attorney you can find. As a tax attorney for going on four decades, I have the knowledge and the experience to make sure you come through your tax troubles with the best possible outcome.
