First experience using attorney,couldn't be more pleased
This was a first time for me seeking legal representation. Mr. Gartzman obviously performed his magic by using his years of experience with IRS matters. Very grateful for him and I must say his office staff.

Positive and non-judgemental
My tax problems were due to my lack of action. The Gartzman Law Firm embraced my problem with solutions and worked on my behalf to ensure the IRS understood I was working to resolve my issues.

Excellent advice, assistance and resolution
Dealing directly with the IRS on tax-related matters can be confusing, time-consuming and daunting. Fortunately, Mr. Gartzman and his staff alleviated a great deal of our trepidation and uncertainty. At each step in the process Mr. Gartzman clearly explained the options available to us and provided accurate advice re: the likelihood of reaching an acceptable and satisfactory agreement. Based on years of experience, his recommendations helped us resolve a rather significant tax liability, which brought much needed relief to me and my spouse. Mr. Gartzman explains options clearly and fully, and his advice was always sensible and accurate. He and his staff are very professional, treating clients with dignity and respect. Finally, the entire staff is incredibly responsive and dependable, always responding to e-mails, phone calls and requests in a timely manner. I highly recommend Mr. Gartzman and his firm to anyone dealing with IRS tax issues.

IRS Assistance
Mr. Gartzman's firm was very professional and handled a difficult IRS penalty assessment matter for us. The outcome was extremely positive with the IRS agreeing to abate accuracy penalties as a result of a recent compliance audit on Foreign Earned Income Exclusion claimed in 2012/2013. Highly recommended.

Great Attorney And Team
Jeff and his associate, Judson, did a great job for me. They exceeded my expectations. During an unforgettable rainy and windy night, I opened my mailbox and found an envelope from the IRS. I opened it. Inside, there was an acceptance of my offer in compromise. I was blown away. For the past year and a half, I had several cancer surgeries, adjuvant therapy, and one tough day after another. I was so grateful for this good news. I still am.

IRS ID Theft Matter
Mr. Gartzman, along with his associate, Judson Mallory, effectively resolved my case of ID theft with the IRS. My SSN had been used by someone else to generate income. Mr. Gartzman was reassuring with his advice and very efficient with his time.

Attorney Gartzman was able to resolve my legal issues with a good outcome. I appreciated the knowledge he shared to help me understand the complex tax problem,coupled with the professionalism and advise given to me through establishing the trust was priceless. Trusting someone to provide legal service is a very hard commodity to discover today and is a big deal to me. Last but not least Attorney Gartzman's staff had such a warm and pleasant smile every time I have gone to the office without a doubt made me felt welcome. I absolutely recommend this law firm to anyone.
