Allan Pearlman is an outstanding tax attorney, and is definitely the man for you and/or your client to have when dealing with tax issues or the IRS itself. Recently, in a move a national tax expert called "Unprecedented", Allan got the IRS to back down, rescind (=erase) their notice of intent to levy, and APOLOGIZE IN WRITING. See Allan's website for details, including copy of IRS letter. http://www.arpearlmanlaw.com
Am I gushing? You bet I am. I'm a Patent Attorney who knew Allan for over five years as a respected colleague in the New York City Bar, and knew he'd won Appellate and IRS cases, but it wasn't until one of my clients got in real tax trouble, and I referred him to Allan, that I really saw how outstanding an attorney he is, and how masterfully he handles tax matters. (Needless to say, Allan's advice led to a very favorable outcome for my client, whose tax problems BEGAN with several years of non-filing . . . and who ended up on good terms with the IRS - a long way from where the client was before receiving Allan's help.)
