Tax Help
Joseph Balisok is an excellent resource for legal help. I hired him to deal with my tax issues with the IRS and NYS. In addition to his expertise as a lawyer find him to be a very supportive "people person". His staff is also friendly and proactive with their communications and following up any loose ends.

An Excellent Attorney Who Achieved Very Successful Results For Us
My wife and I are extremely grateful to Joseph Balisok for his expert legal counsel, outstanding communication skills, tireless efforts and the successful outcome he obtained in resolving our considerable past due tax liabilities. It is no exaggeration to say that he literally saved our financial lives. I have already referred quite a few friends and acquaintances to him, and will continue to do so, citing some key reasons for my recommendation: First, I was particularly impressed that right from the start Joseph developed multiple strategies for pursuing our case with the IRS; in effect, he was always thinking several moves ahead, and always ready to take a different approach in the event that a current strategy wasn’t producing the desired result. This kind of legal skill and smarts comes not only from his formidable intelligence, but also the enormous amount of experience he’s had with so many other, similar cases. Intelligence and experience also factor into how much Joseph excels as a communicator. He knows what to say and how to say it when speaking with IRS and State Tax personnel, and has a great desk-side (and telephone) manner with clients. He was always very clear and very reliable in regularly talking with us about how our case was going, and very patient in explaining what he was doing on our behalf and why. Another big plus in working with Joseph was his quite reasonable fee structure, particularly notable in light of all the time and effort required by him and his staff to achieve the excellent resolution we hoped for. In short, Joseph Balisok did an outstanding job for us, and based on that as well as all the positive things I observed about how he works, he has earned my trust and highest recommendation.

Joseph Balisok helped me with incorporation. I have found him to be exceptionally honest and straightforward. There is no question that he is a G-d fearing person who can be trusted to perform his legal function professionally and competently.

Readily avilable and compassionate
Joseph and his staff are knowledgeable and readily available to answer questions. I first became familiar with Joseph when he did the closing for my parents condo. Then I hired him due to a bad investment I made. My daughter hired him to apply for a green card for her husband. He and his staff are well versed in many areas and walk with you every step of the way. I recommend him highly. You will walk away not only with good legal advice and legal services, but also with the feeling of friendship.

I was recommended by a friend to Mr. Balisok for my corporate management agreement and later on my real estate transactions and Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing. Every detail of my experience was very well handled.
