About Me

PHIL SMITH CORPORATE MISSION VISION/STATEMENT


After practicing law for almost 20 years, I have decided to create my dream - a law firm that provides quality legal services to medium and small size businesses with an emphasis on the tax aspects of business transactions. My vision is based on my personal and business experiences in the legal marketplace, and the particular niche that I have developed over the many years of practicing tax and business law.


The primary focus of the legal services provided by my firm is to provide legal representation in the areas of business and taxation both nationally and internationally. The Firm’s specific practice areas are:



  1. National and international tax dispute resolution, representation before the United States Tax Court and tax advantaged business strategies,

  2. Representing startup and business entity formation,

  3. Capitalization of small to medium sized business entities,

  4. Representation of small businesses before the United States Small Business Administration, the Civilian Contract Board of Appeals,

  5. Representation in the litigation of business disputes.


Mr. Smith is licensed to practice law throughout the state of California with offices in Los Angeles County. He is authorized to handle IRS matters throughout the United States, and is also licensed to practice before the United States Tax Court. His phone number is 323-292-4116 or his email address is philsmithjr@worldclasslawyers.com.
