When I represent clients in any litigation matters I take the time to fully examine the dispute and recommend whether the client should attempt to settle the case or incur the additional expense of litigation. With a sluggish economy and the long time period required to bring the case to trial I provide my clients an honest opinion as to what the best course of action is to reach a favorable outcome.

With respect to all tax matter controversies I recommend whether my client should seek a settlement with the Internal Revenue Service or bring the controversy to appeals and then the U.S. Tax Court.
