Marty and Amy, did an incredible job on our IRS audit with great results. They are true professionals, and worked tirelessly to meet tight deadlines. Their expertise in tax matters is extraordinary, and they truly care about their clients. I could not be more pleased with the outstanding work they did on our case.

Not only did the job they did for me exceeded my hopes, but their continuing assurance that everything would be all right was an added gift. The manner and patience offered to me gave me peace during a most difficult time.

Marty and his enrolled agent Sarah have been nothing short of miracle workers. Super smart, super knowledgable, super responsive and extremely effective. They are also some of the nicest and caring legal advisors I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I highly, highly recommend them.

Mr, Davidoff, is not only professional, he is prepared, thorough, and has a team of lawyers and assistants that make you instantly feel at ease. I walked into this office, confused, and scared. I walked out with a plan, calm, and finally am in control of my life. I would recommend him to anyone over and over again. Just go, he is the one to help you!

To say we are pleased with the outcome of our situation is an understatement. We had to owed the IRS SUBSTANTIALLY lower than we anticipated and everything closed pretty fast! The entire staff was extremely polite and thorough during our entire experience. I interviewed many firms and this firm hands down was the most professional, competent and compassionate team you will find. Andrew took care of most of our case and we couldn't have been happier. As a young couple with very little knowledge of the tax and legal world they held our hand through the process he helped us breath easier understanding each step of the way.

Sometimes we make poor decisions. Such decisions can have serious consequences. I allowed myself to make a series of bad choices. I fell behind paying my taxes. Year one, just a little bit. Year two, a little more. It continued for several years and hundreds of thousands of dollars. At first, my “friends” at the IRS seemed not to care much, merely sending polite letters demanding payment once or twice a year, until . . .
In February an IRS Revenue Officer (“RO”) showed up at my office. She was polite, but deadly serious and all business. She wanted to know why I hadn’t paid my taxes and told me the IRS was coming after me. She advised that liens would be filed, that she would find my wife (a joint-filer, who had no idea of our tax delinquencies) to discuss the matter, she advised that we needed to move into a cheaper apartment, and delivered other scary warnings.
I called my CPA and told him what transpired. Without hesitation, he referred Marty Davidoff. I called Marty’s office and spoke to Rachel. She was wonderfully reassuring, letting me know I was hardly the first person in that situation. She was incredibly organized, had a list of questions and told me what documents Marty and his team would need to see. (Now six months later, I remain very impressed with Marty’s team. His staff is attentive, detailed oriented and client focused.)
Within an hour Marty called me back. He described his professional experience as a tax attorney and his initial expectations and he made it clear that he would advocate for us. Beyond demonstrating his legal expertise, Marty was compassionate. He clearly understood that I was hurting, and that my wife would need not only an expert legal strategy, but a fair serving of humanity and TLC. Marty (and his team) have demonstrated those qualities.
We had our first meeting days later. Marty and Andrew Paradis, his associate, expertly walked us through the situation, analyzing our tax liability, our income and assets. They walked us through rights that taxpayers, even delinquent ones, have. When we did not understand things, they took the time to explain them again. While they assured us we could work this out, they never overpromised. The two Es – Excellent and Ethical. We left that initial meeting with a plan for Marty and Andrew to engage with the IRS RO and demonstrate our commitment to making things right. They also had a backup plan, preserving our rights. Within days they had developed a positive working relationship with our RO – while my wife and I were ecstatic, my impression is that it seemed like business as usual for Marty and Andrew. I now understand the reason – and that is because this is what they routinely do, and they are expert at it.
One of the things we were required to do was provide full financial disclosure to the IRS. This can be a difficult process, and when not done properly can lead to mistrust by the IRS. Marty and Andrew walked us through the process making it easy for us to understand what we needed to provide. Marty’s team compiled a professional submission for the IRS which helped resolve our matter by building a bridge of trust between us and the IRS.
By our second meeting Marty and Andrew had developed a strategy for a six-year payment plan. It was achievable and realistic, and provided us a chance to both pay our liability and continue to live comfortably. The IRS accepted our proposal due to, in my opinion, the relationship Marty and Andrew established with the IRS.
We had a number of minor issues arise since our plan was accepted. Marty and Andrew have been very attentive. They are problem solvers and dealt promptly and effectively with those issues.
I have never posted a review of a service provider before on the internet, but I am compelled to now. We were so pleased with the services that Marty, Andrew and their team provided, I would love to be able to recommend them to others facing tax problems so that they can be helped the way were

Due to a serious illness, I was not able to fulfill my tax obligations for several years. As my symptoms improved, I followed my accountant’s advice and retained E Martin Davidoff’s firm to resolve those tax issues.
I found Marty to be very understanding of my situation, and extremely knowledgeable. With his advice, guidance, and experience handling similar tax situations, my issues have been resolved in a very satisfactory manner.
His staff, and especially his assistant Amy, were very helpful and kept me informed at all times re the progress of the case. Amy’s exceptional inter-personal skills and responsiveness were instrumental in keeping my anxieties under control. With their assistance, I was able to focus on obtaining the information they needed to move the case forward.
I am convinced that I made an excellent decision when I entrusted Davidoff with my case. They are the best.

Sarah Fields was the calm in my storm. With IRS regulations being so confusing, and it's agents being so intimidating....Sarah rolled up her sleeves and did my fighting for me. She was informative, knowledgeable, personable and well connected. She utilized all of her resources to resolve my tax issue. She communicated with me every step of the way, and followed up as deadlines approached. She was available and accessible and went above and beyond to assure me. The office was inviting and services were affordable. I would use them again, but hopefully I won't have to!

The saying goes: you get what you pay for. My husband and I were facing a low 6 figure tax issue with the IRS, as well as, a low 5 figure State tax matter, which, in my eyes, these issues would have destroyed us. On top of the IRS and State issues, we also had a Department of Labor issue during the same period. I set out to find an attorney. One only needs to read Marty’s bio to know that he is the man you want on your side, fighting for you. Marty’s superb representation does not start and stop with him - his entire staff is comprised with intelligent, helpful and insightful individuals. Concerning Marty’s fees - he has earned every dime. Initially, the thought did cross my mind to seek out a lower level attorney and save a few dollars, however, I sought the best of the best. If we were to survive this nightmare, we needed a champion, one who had our best interests at heart. Do not misunderstand, the fees are not unreasonable and when dealing with such serious and potentially life altering issues, you want to feel secure, you want the best in the industry covering your back. Marty and his entire staff are friendly and easy to work with, (I think we’ve worked with everyone in his office). The client/attorney relationship at Marty’s office is a team effort, a partnership. Two things I particularly like about Marty is 1) he is straightforward, he’ll tell you like it is, good or bad and at the same time, put you at ease, and 2) being a professional of his stature, he does not put on airs. Marty and his team were successful in obtaining favorable outcomes for us for each of our three issues. My advice, read his bio, it speaks for itself.

Mr. Davidoff is extremely knowledgeable, professional and a subject matter expert. He has surrounded himself with a team that is caring, professional and has all the puzzle pieces to develop a strategy that is reasonable and a win-win.
If you're seeing an attorney, things are usually not 'fun', however, every member of his staff from greeting you at arrival, until the staff that addresses the issues at hand and setting the table for involving Mr. Davidoff and his expert opinion, Mr. Davidoff has scored a significant victory for us, but also was fair in his dealings with the taxing entities.
BOTTON LINE: Mr. Davidoff knows his stuff inside and out, and has surrounded himself with the Best of the Best, so I would Very Highly recommend him.
