My thoroughness and ability to take complex ideas and distill them into manageable and understandable concepts ensures that my clients are well-informed on complicated tax matters. I enjoy delving into sophisticated tax law cases and becoming well-versed in knotty legal or factual issues. My practice focuses on federal and state tax controversy matters as well as tax planning for business transactions.
Prior to joining Stein Sperling, I served for nearly 3 years as a Deputy Attorney General for the State of New Jersey’s Tax, Bankruptcy and Debt Recovery Section. There, I litigated dozens of cases before the Tax Court of New Jersey in all manner of state taxes, including sales and use tax, gross income tax, corporate business tax, inheritance and estate tax, as well as cigarette and other excise taxes. Common issues included credits for taxes paid to other states, corporate nexus, estate property valuation, trust fund tax liabilities with responsible person determinations, and homestead property tax rebates. I also argued tax issues in New Jersey’s appellate court.
In addition to my role as a tax litigator, I provided counsel to the Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services, New Jersey’s non-tax debt collector, interpreting incorporation, partnership and LLC statutes, reviewing memoranda of understanding and other legal documents and contributed to the strategic planning of the Division of Revenue.
