Review Allan Pearlman
  • Life Saver

    5.0 stars

    Posted by William

    Allan Pearlman is a life saver. I had to pay taxes on income for ten years past. I made efforts and arranged an agreement with the IRS, but failed to pay lump sum amount due for last year. Suddenly the IRS demanded thousands of dollars for each year to be paid immediately. Allan took on my case and did a stellar job. Not only did he negotiate an agreement for me in a short period of time, but the monthly amount I am now paying is much less than my original agreement amount. Allan is professional, efficient and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. Allan has resolved my complicated case and has delivered stress relief and piece of mindand for this I am forever grateful.

    I used Mr. Pearlman on a thorny multi-state income tax dilemma stretching back many years. He immediately understood the problem I had and had helpful, actionable ideas. I was referred to him by a friend; now I know why the friend thinks so highly of Allan. Very helpful.

    Having moved from another state and a delay in filing our taxes, Allan was most responsive in helping us through the process of clarification, research and filing. He was thoughtful, specific, clear and supportive in the provision of his legal services. He was thorough and always timely. We were very pleased and appreciative with his professional services.

  • Straightened out an IRS issue to the tune of $26,000

    5.0 stars

    Allan Pearlman served me well in straightening out an IRS issue that put me at risk for $26,000. I had incorrectly excluded expenses from a former company I contracted for, and the IRS hit me for all income + expenses. I felt helpless and powerless to deal with the IRS’s presumption of guilt. Allan reviewed all relevant materials, established a strategy, and saw it through to completion. He researched my situation with other experts, kept me focused and informed, dealt professionally and effectively with the IRS, and truly represented me in our approach to resolving this potentially damaging situation. He orchestrated a “recast” of my taxes for the year, pointed out to the IRS that I had paid taxes on the income, and followed through to the ultimate resolution of the situation: I only owed the IRS $189 (and I got that much *back* from the state of Maryland)!
    Allan not only provided an invaluable professional service that was effective, but his reassurance and his follow through helped me to realize that I was not alone, and I had a powerful ally working with me. Together we straightened out the situation – once and for all. I would not hesitate, if given the chance, to engage Allan as my attorney on any matter. I’m very confident that I would be well served.

  • Saved a lot of money

    Allan is not only a great tax lawyer but he's also very empathetic and was able to ease my anxiety over the tax issue I faced. Allan extensively researched my tax issue and helped guide me through the complicated process. He's very responsive to client questions and always responded in a timely fashion. In the end, my final settlement was a lot smaller than I could have envisaged at the beginning.

  • West Coast Attorney Gives Top Rating

    Allan Pearlman is an outstanding tax attorney, and is definitely the man for you and/or your client to have when dealing with tax issues or the IRS itself. Recently, in a move a national tax expert called "Unprecedented", Allan got the IRS to back down, rescind (=erase) their notice of intent to levy, and APOLOGIZE IN WRITING. See Allan's website for details, including copy of IRS letter. http://www.arpearlmanlaw.com
    Am I gushing? You bet I am. I'm a Patent Attorney who knew Allan for over five years as a respected colleague in the New York City Bar, and knew he'd won Appellate and IRS cases, but it wasn't until one of my clients got in real tax trouble, and I referred him to Allan, that I really saw how outstanding an attorney he is, and how masterfully he handles tax matters. (Needless to say, Allan's advice led to a very favorable outcome for my client, whose tax problems BEGAN with several years of non-filing . . . and who ended up on good terms with the IRS - a long way from where the client was before receiving Allan's help.)
