Experience Solving Serious
Federal Tax Matters

The IRS actively pursues taxpayers who have unreported and unpaid taxes. Our attorneys understand how to develop a strategic plan that mitigates long-term consequences which these federal tax issues may impose on you or your business.

We provide a broad range of federal tax services, including addressing tax liens and levies, negotiating installment agreements and offers in compromise, and helping with tax collection issues. We can also provide guidance to ensure you are complying with all domestic and offshore tax regulations.

Legal Strategies Tailored to Fit
Your Unique Circumstances

When reviewing the facts of your case, we analyze your situation to determine the optimal course of action. We are effective negotiators who seek fair resolutions with state and federal tax authorities, allowing you to avoid litigation whenever possible.

When litigation is the only option, our seasoned litigation attorneys bring experience and proven courtroom tactics to your case. Our team includes former trial attorneys who worked for the U.S. Department of Justice Tax Division and the California Employment Development Department.

We represent our clients in state and federal courtrooms, including the U.S. Tax Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, U.S. District Courts, U.S. Court of Federal Claims, U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, and in California Superior Courts.

Strong Advocacy For
All California Tax Issues

Our tax attorneys work with California taxpayers, as well as out-of-state individuals and businesses, facing legal challenges regarding California tax matters such as residency and nexus.

From our Sacramento office, we are just minutes away from state tax agencies and can appear before the tax authorities in a timely and efficient manner on your behalf. This includes the Franchise Tax Board (FTB), the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA), the California State Board of Equalization (BOE), and the Employment Development Department (EDD). These agencies are responsible for California tax audits, appeals, protests, collections and settlements.

We also appear before the California Office of Tax Appeals (OTA), California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board (CUIAB), and other boards for administrative hearings regarding tax matters.

Our attorneys are available to assist clients regardless of geographic location in federal and California state tax matters. We have represented clients in 49 states and in numerous countries across the globe. Our history of experience and success has led to our recognition as a Tier 1 Tax Litigation Law Firm by U.S. News & World Report every year since 2013.
