Probate - Father
My father had a small estate and for the past five years, my brother and I had not bothered to close it. Finally, I knew I needed to get it done and contacted Karim, it was a great move! Living in NC, it was great to have someone who knew what needed to be done, provided the direction and support to close the various gates and ultimately get the account closed while ensuring there were no loose ends. I would strongly recommend Karim to anyone looking for a lawyer who specializes in tax, bankruptcy or probate.

Review
I hired Karim to represent me in an IRS matter. We were able to prove that the IRS never tried to contact me regarding the issue we were litigating, as a result all issues were resolved at no cost to me.

IRS Tax Help
I contacted Brandywine Tax Resolution to help with a Company payroll tax issue, Karim Husain was instrumental in negotiating a payment plan with the IRS. Later the business failed with more than a 1 million dollar payroll tax liability which the IRS attached to me personally. Karim Husain led me through the process of the filing of an Offer in Compromise. I received notice of approval of the offer and am very pleased with the settlement. Brandywine Tax saved me more than a million dollars of tax liability. Brandywine Tax offered the Offer In Compromise at a reasonable fixed price as well. I would highly recommend Brandywine Tax for these types of complicated Tax issues.

Great Tax Lawyer
Mr Husain helped me with problems with the IRS. I owed them a substantial amount and Karim helped me reach a great settlement. He also does my tax returns for a reasonable fee. I recommend him for any type of tax problems that you may have. He is conveniently located in West Chester Pennsylvania.

Large Tax problem resolved
I absolutely recommend Brandywine Tax Resolution to represent you for any tax liability issues you may have with any government entity. I recently engaged Mr. Husain to represent my interests. I had a large tax liability I incurred over 25 years ago that has haunted me ever since. I was indebted to a local municipality and needed an attorney with education, experience and credentials. I had consulted with several professionals and was not completely confident that they could help my situation. I came upon the website of Brandywine Tax Resolution and I immediately knew I had to consult with them. Mr. Husain has extensive legal experience in addition to an excellent tax education. When I discussed my situation with him, he knew what had to be done and was the only attorney I talked with that actually had the experience with my exact problem. 25 years ago, I ran into personal and financial difficulties that made it impossible for me to meet my tax obligations. The longer it lasted, the worse it became until my tax liability ballooned to over $330,000 with no option to compromise with the municipality. I engaged Mr. Husain to represent me and he was able to abate over $300,000. Needless to say, the result that was accomplished gave me a new financial future that was beyond any expectations I had. I give 5 stars to Brandywine Tax Resolution. Tax Client, Philadelphia, PA

Property Tax Appeal
I went to Mr Husain because I was paying too much for my property taxes. Mr Husain fully explained the process and handled my appeal for a very reasonable fee. The County approved the appeal. My taxes were reduced the first year alone for much more than the legal fees were.

Unprofessional and Rude
I called for the free consult and he hung up on me while I was mid sentence after stating that my case was too minor for him to deal with. Even if I had a case that had more money involved or knew someone that did, I would DEFINITELY not pay for this lawyer nor would I recommend him. Unprofessional attitude and behavior.
Response from Karim Husain September 28, 2020
I don't recall this specific telephone conversation. Please consider the possibility that your call was dropped due to a failure in cell/telephone service. Each year I provide countless hours of free legal advice to our community over the telephone. Thanks.
