About Me

I have been certified by the Florida bar as a Tax specialist.  I graduated with honors from the University of Miami School of Law in 2003.  During law school, I interned with the Miami-Dade state attorney's office and was an editor for the Inter-American Law Review.  I went on to earn my L.L.M. degree (Masters of Law) in Taxation from the University of Miami in 2006.  Prior to law school, I majored in Accounting and  earned a Master's Degree in Taxation from Florida International University.  I have been a C.P.A. (Certified Public Accountant) in the state of Florida since 2002.  


 


My law practice focuses on two main areas:  Tax Law and Criminal Law.


 


Tax Law Practice:



  • Civil Tax Controversies


  • Tax Litigation

  • Problematic Audits

  • Employment and Payroll Tax issues

  • Tax Collections

  • IRS Liens, Levys and Seizures


  • Offshore Compliance

  • Voluntary Disclosures


 


I have successfully represented clients against the Internal Revenue
Service at the field and appeals level, as well as before the United
States Tax Court. I have also advised and counseled clients on various issues,
including trust and estate planning, corporate structuring and general
tax planning.


 


Criminal Law Practice:



  • Grand Jury Representation

  • Fraud


  • Tax Evasion

  • Money Laundering


  • DUI



  • Capital Felonies


 


I have extensive experience at the state and federal level litigating all phases of a
criminal case.  I have defended clients charged with various white-collar crimes, as well as other crimes such as grant theft, child molestation and murder.


 


I pride myself on always being available for my clients.  When I accept a case, I make a commitment to do everything in my power to protect my client's interests and achieve the best possible results.
