After working for the I.R.S. for seven years, I made the decision to leave and enter private practice.  I now represent individuals and small businesses who are having tax problems.  I have found this work most gratifying and rewarding.  I've gotten to form relationships for life and friendships that will never die.

Genius and genuine
If you need an expert, then Max Benkel is the one to choose. Concise and collectively caring. His knowledge is exceptional and his work is beyond the scope of "getting the job done". He negotiated and championed our case.

Victory in settling my tax issues
I am so elated over the accepted offer you presented. To be able to compromise a $ 75,000.00 IRS debt for only $4,800.00 is wonderful. I knew I selected the right attorney as soon as I met you. Thanks again, this is a life changing matter for me.
