About Me

Hello, my name is Ari Good.  I am an attorney licensed in Florida, Illinois and Washington, DC.  I received my BA in Political Science, with distinction, from the University of Michigan in 1993.  I graduated from the DePaul University College of Law in 2005, where I published articles in several art, entertainment and intellectual property law journals.  I received my Masters of Tax Law (LL.M.) from the University of Florida.  I founded my boutique law firm, Good Attorneys At Law, P.A., in 2008. 


 


I proudly defend taxpayers against state and federal tax audits of all kinds.  My other tax experience includes representing clients before the U.S. tax Court, counseling clients on Foreign Bank Account (FBAR) matters, and defending state sales and use tax audits across a wide range of industries.  On the transactional side, I have been fortunate enough to have experience in complex aircraft transactions, which remains an important and interesting part of my practice.


   


The firm also counsel clients in consumer bankruptcy matters, including filing and supporting Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies.  As I believe it is always better to be exceptional at a few things rather than mediocre in many, our practice includes no estate planning, wealth management or litigation services.  We therefore routinely work in a cooperative, non-competitive manner with skilled and experienced professionals in these and other areas of law.


 


My pledge to all of my clients is to provide accurate, timely advice in all tax and bankruptcy law matters.  I know that one of a client's principal desires is to get a hold of his or her attorney in a timely matter.  In this regard I seek always to provide the highest degree of personal and professional service.
