At the office of attorney Michael S. Adelman, tax defense services are available for tax evasion, unfiled returns, federal grand jury (for "targets", "subjects", "persons of interest", witnesses or "status unclear"),false tax returns and/or false statement criminal tax cases.
Mr. Adelman is also available for all issues typically involved in U.S. Tax Court cases, tax audits (especially if the Audit identifies certain issues and/or tax years but client is concerned about where audit trail might lead) and administrative appeals from audit determinations.
A large part of his practice since 2009 involves the IRS "Amnesty" Programs: the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP); the extremely advantageous "Streamlined Procedures" (SDOP) component of the OVDP if all eligibility criteria are met and sustained; as well as evaluations for traditional "voluntary disclosures", not necessarily limited to Offshore Account/Foreign Financial Institution/FBAR/FATCA and related previous and ongoing reporting compliance issues.
Another important part of his practice is devising individualized client strategies--NOT the high-fee "one-size-fits-all" approach utilized by most massively advertised "Tax Relief" companies, most of which are not local and not staffed heavily if at all by experienced tax compliance defense attorneys--to respond to IRS collection matters, tax levies,federal tax liens, wage garnishments/attachments, bank account levies,long standing tax delinquencies, non-filings, etc.
Tax defense services are not only for individuals and businesses, but also can be structured to assist attorneys who may wish to retain control of a client, while being guided and counseled behind the scenes by an expert with 47 years of tax controversy experience.
Second opinions are available, especially in criminal tax, audit, federal grand jury and OVDP matters where the stakes are huge, often involving a person's freedom.
Legal fees are reasonable, especially in light of Mr. Adelman's 16 years of compliance experience with the Treasury Department and well-over 30 subsequent years (1986 to date) as a defense attorney.
Terms will be proposed in written form, time actually used for legal services will be itemized, and any unused portions of retainers or other advance payments are refundable to the client.
It is for everyone's benefit that he offers a minimum 15-20 minute free telephone consultation, primarily to see if prospective client(s) and the attorney are a good fit.
