After I came away from a horrid IRS tax audit, with post-divorce issues to boot, I contacted Mr. Sodowsky who helped navigate me through a payment plan and even got me some abatements from the IRS. He answered each of my questions patiently and always had time to speak with me in person when I requested it. I would not hesitate to recommend him if one has had an IRS audit and now needs to address tax debt.

I met with Elden for an initial consultation. I would have hired him if more action was necessary. His fees were reasonable. With most lawyers you would have expected them to sell you a story that there was more to do regarding your issues. He gave me great advice about what I should not do and what to do if several scenarios occur. He is honest and genuine. If you want a lawyer who is only concerned about the client and not making more money, he is the one to work for you.

I just left another meeting with my atty, Elden Sodowsky. I am a small business man, a one man show offering business development services to local businesses and particularly those in the construction industry. I met Elden several years ago after getting a mailing from him offering services as a tax atty. I was in bad shape having record breaking earnings in 2007 and 2008 but not managing my money very well. consiquently, when the market melted down in the end of 2008 my earnings tanked and I was defenseless against the IRS. I had been in this position many years ago and worked with a accounting firm to reach a settlement with the IRS. It was great, I ended up paying a fraction of what I owed, but they indicated that I had to stay on the straight and narrow from then on. So now it was "serious" and Elden walked through the process with me step by step. Normally a pretty well adjusted individual with advanced degrees in psychology and counseling, this was turning me into a basket case, but Elden worked with me and kept me grounded. I had let it all traumatize me so badly that on one occasion when I had to hand deliver a payment directly to the IRS, I had a panic attack in the parking lot. Not knowing what to do, I called Elden and he took the time to "talk me down" so that I could get myself in the building and make the payment. Now after a couple of years of working a payment plan (and even that has issues whenever they don't process my check correctly !!) I am in a much better situation today with my personal finances in much better order (even though I am not earning much more than half of what I made in 2008).
This past weekend says it all when it comes to what I think of Elden. My wife called me in a panick saying she had just signed for 5 registered letters from the IRS. I told her that I had no idea what they were about, but I knew that if they were anything I should be worrying about, Elden would have called or emailed me ahead of time (Elden knows that I can't bring myself to open letters from the IRS) and my wife said "okay" and that was that!! She knows that Elden has our back, and there were no more worries. Today's meeting with Elden was an to go over the issue of the registered letters (again, my payment was not processed correctly) and long story short, it was/is no big deal. We truly had nothing to worry about, and if we did, Elden would have alerted me. Elden has been indespensible to my peace of mind in this matter and I would recommend him without reservation to anyone.

This was my first audit experience with the IRS and thanks to Mr. Sodowsky's excellent support I received a "no change" letter from them. One hour consultation and the response strategy was set. That, plus assistance on the written response was all that was needed. He knows his business!

Mr Sodowsky is a fabulous tax attorney! His competence is unmatched when dealing with very complex situations. Plus, he and his staff never leave you wondering about status as they provide timely updates and answer questions right away. He and staff are always on top of every deadline and requirement. At the first consultation, Mr Sodowsky will lift years of worry off your shoulders. Best of all, he is compassionate and non-judgmental regardless of the problems you bring to him for resolution. He does what he says he's going to do when he says he's going to do it. HE IS SIMPLY THE BEST!

I sat in several of Mr. Sodowsky's initial consultations with potential clients. I was truly impressed by the level of practical advice, insight, and comfort he offered to the individuals and business owners facing stressful tax issues. Some went home with action plans to take care of the problems on their own. Others hired him with a clear road map to resolve their tax liabilities. His existing clients and fellow attorneys are proud to know Mr. Sodowsky for his patience, integrity and thoroughness. He is the one you want to hire when you have tax problems.

I've known Elden through Partner's Club, a group of entrepreneurial lawyers who support eachother in growing our practices. In my weekly calls, Elden always provides support and I believe that his integrity with this group is the same he provides to his clients.
