I have an avid interest in assisting people navigate the legal system. My motivation is assisting my clients and helping them to avoid needless complexity and stress in legal matters, whether it's a matter involving licensing IP, an equity purchase, or litigation.

I have unique experience as an attorney and have particular experience in information technology and building/construction.

Prior to studying law, I worked in technology development at Lucent Technologies and was involved in the design and rollout of multi-mode fiber optic networks and VOIP services at clients in New York and New Jersey.

Additionally, I have training and direct experience in the residential and commercial construction industries, having obtained training in electrical, plumbing, and framing, and have passed the contractor's exam in Virginia, in order to better understand construction disputes.

Outstanding
I was referred to Mr Bozof for a copyright infringement matter in VA, and he was excellent. In my initial consultation it was clear he had deep knowledge of the subject matter; I did not hesitate to hire him, and thankful I did. My goal was to make this matter go away as quickly as possible, and Mr Bozof did just that. He communicated with me consistently, and presented a number of alternative strategies along with the associated risks of each one. (mostly surrounding time and cost). I chose the least expensive/time consuming strategy with him, and he executed it perfectly, working with opposing counsel to a very reasonable settlement. Because of Mr Bozof, I was able to put a distracting matter quickly in the rear view mirror so I can focus on my business. I would not hesitate to hire him in the future.

Excellent attorney and counselor
We retained Mr Bozof in a construction lawsuit. We were sued by a client after completing the structure. Thye just didn't want to pay us because money was tight for them and they wanted to use small issues with the plumbing to try to claim the foundation was done wrong. He immediately identified what we needed to do, and was able to understand everything that came up. I never had an attorney who understood commercial building code. He had several expert witnesses available too that we consulted with and they confirmed every thing he said. At a 2 day trial Mr Bozof cut to the chase. I think the judge immediately saw that the claims against us were bogus. Also, one of their expert witnesses wasn't even qualified for plumbiing and mr Bozof got him kicked out. It was quite impressive. We got paid, and they had to pay for our legal fees too. Very happy with Mr Bozof.

Fantastic lawyer who cares about his customers
Mr. Bozof helped me with my Innocent Spouse Relief. When I visited him for consultation I could tell that Mr. Bozof really cares about the customer and situations that the customers are in. It was a lengthy process and I had so many unknowns and questions. Mr. Bozof was a phone call away from me to answer any questions that I had each and every time. Today, I received a letter from the IRS where the IRS granted me a full relief. I was blessed to have hired Mr. Bozof. I would definitely recommend Mr. Bozof for any tax matters that you may face. He will work with you and guide you all the way through. Thank you very much, Mr. Bozof!!!

Response from A. Izaak Bozof November 8, 2017
I was very happy to have gotten this case resolved in my client's favor. Innocent Spouse Relief is available to individuals who are married or divorced and have been in some way defrauded or deceived by their spouse/ex-spouse resulting in a tax liability. However the IRS does not make getting this relief easy. This case required in-depth documentation and the initial result was a denial despite meeting all of the requirements. On appeal, we prevailed for this client and got them relief from a large liability brought on by an ex-spouse.

Amazing service
I can not say enough about the vast knowledge and kind personality of Mr. Bozof! He took his time trying to fully understand my situation which was a complicated case of income taxes in 2 states and then explained what my best options were, and all this in his first free consultation plus follow up! He was willing to help for a very reasonable fee, but let me try to solve it first on my own. Thanks to his help I was able to solve the problem on the first try but I would have gladly hired him and will do so if ever needed in the future. I would recommend Mr. Bozof to anyone!

I Never Thought...
I never thought I would meet a lawyer with equal parts Knowledge, compasion, integrity and fairness all rolled into one package. I had an IRS situation that I had spent coountless hours and over $15,000 trying to solve over a period of 15 years. Mr Bozof attacked my situation and had a settlement for me in a few months. This situation had put my life in an endless loop that seemed hopeless to solve. I cannot recomend him highly enough. A true blessing frim God.

Will change your opinion of attorneys
I had been ignoring letters from the IRS for several years and finally they tried to take my house. i hired "Tax Tiger" and was promised results very quickly -- they did get the IRS to release my house, but I was still in for over $80,000 and I had zero money to deal with it. They fianlly stopped calling me even though I had paid their fee in full!! I asked and was referred to Izaac by another client. There really is an advantage to a small shop handling your case. Every time I called "Tax Tiger" I spoke to a different person who had to research my case. I never got a clear answer. Izaac took the time to explain every step of the process, and took my calls when I needed help.

Thank you for the review. We work very hard to protect our clients and unfortunately, many of our clients come in after hiring another "firm" who doesn't provide any guidance or real help. As attorneys, we are able to offer legal advice -- a non-attorney cannot provide legal advice -- to legally protect your property and bank accounts from seizure.

Light at the end of the tunnel.
Ten years ago things for me took a turn for the worse, to say the least. In the process of getting back my life back together my biggest challenge ; what worried me the most were the back taxes that I was going to have to pay back. I owed the Federal Government, and the District of Columbia both well over $100,000 each. It wasn't long before I knew that I was in good hands with Mr. Bozof, he explained the process, told me what to expect, kept me informed, and was always available; he handled everything. All I had to do was sign a power of attorney and fax him documents from time to time. Mr. Bozof submitted an offer of compromise on my behalf and took what was to me a very intimidating and insurmountable problem and changed it in to something very manageable indeed. I have already paid off the Feds, and I will soon be done paying off the District of Columbia.There is light at the end of the tunnel, my future is brighter, because of the hard work that Mr Bozof did on my behalf. There are so many lawyers and law firms out there making some really good claims; you don't know who to trust. I can say that for a reasonable fee i got very effective legal representation with Mr Bozof.

Excellent for ex-pat tax issues, FBAR, income, trusts, everthing!
We moved to Europe over a decade ago and knew nothing of our tax obligations in the USA. After opening a bank account there, we were stunned to be informed by the bank that they would not allow unless we could show compliance with the US tax laws -- we thought we didn't have any! I contacted the IRS and was again shocked to learn that we were supposed to have been filing for every single year as well as a separate filing for our bank accounts. They immediately put a lien on the home that we still owned in Maryland and rented out. We were going to be penalized literally hundreds of thousands of dollars. Izaak moved very quickly to instruct us of our obligations and guide us thru the filing process for all our back returns and FBAR filing (who had ever heard of that one??) In the end, we not only got all of our penalties waived, Izaak negotiated the interest into a very manageable amount and got the FBAR penalties completely waived. We ended up going from owing over $150k to settling for just $3000. It was a life saver. Izaak then helped us set up a trust in the US so we could protect the things we still owned back home since we'd like to return one day soon. I cannot tell you how smooth things went. Izaak is very organized and he keeps everything electronically so we could do everything by email.

Tax Attorney | May 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. His expertise in the tax litigation is outstanding. I recommend all of my clients to his firm with any problems that may have with the IRS. He is highly responsive and dedicated to his clients. He offers a sliding pay scale to clients who would otherwise not be able to afford representation with the ominous process of working directly with the IRS. He takes the time to make sure that his clients understand the IRS process that must be undertaken in their case, so they are absolutely clear on tedious process. In the world of every changing IRS tax laws, he makes to sure to stay current on all changes. The most remarkable aspect of his firm is that negotiates the most impressive settlements with the IRS on his clients’ behalf. He genuinely cares about his client; this is a quality that not many attorneys possess, especially tax attorneys"
