Miraculous Work!!
To Broward County Bar Association, I am writing to laude the services rendered to my family by Attorney Larry Bishins. Approximately 2 years ago, I contacted the Broward County Bar Association for a recommendation. I was given the names and contact information of two Attorneys to select from. I researched them further online and decided to use Atty. L. Bishins. We retained the services of Mr. Bishins to help us resolve a major IRS debt issue that was crippling our life for more than 16 years. When I initialized my contact phone call with his office, I spoke with the receptionist. I clearly delineated what my problems were and that I wanted to know if L. Bishins will accept client calls, return calls in a timely manner and will be responsive to email correspondences. Her courteousness and professional style was impressive as she recommended her boss with a chuckle in her voice stating; “you will love him. He is the best” I immediately felt comfortable and trusting by the professional and relaxed style with which my interrogative tone and style was received. The service outcome and quality time spend over the past two years with L. Bishins and his gracious receptionist Quisqueya DeLaRosa was simply amazing. The outcome of our Tax dilemma with the IRS was resolved. We has a nearly miraculous resolution that only his experience and expertise in Tax Law and years of battling with the IRS could garner. Thank you for the referral to an exceptionally competent Attorney. Thank you for rendering this service to us and the public. There are far too many stories of folks who have retained attorneys that they can’t ever speak with or see once they have signed their agreements. I am eternally grateful and hold Larry Bishins in high esteem for his faithful and loyal service. Thank you Broward County Bar Association for a professional and high standard service. Respectfully, Beverly Pyne

IRS Tax Defense
I consulted with Larry Bishins on an IRS tax audit. He is very knowledgeable in tax law and procedures. He was able to successfully challenge unreasonable IRS tax positions and was able to negotiate a very favorable settlement.

Extremely Knowledgeable Tax and Business Layer
Mr. Bishins was presented with a very complex business transaction that had numerous tax implications. Mr. Bishins expertly explained all my alternatives and the nuances of each. With his guidance I was able to decide on the best approach for this transaction and Mr. Bishins completed all the necessary documents in a very efficient and professional manner. I would certainly hire Mr. Bishins again for any future transactions.

Larry Bishins saved me Thousands$$$
I have been a client of Larry Bishins for years and he has always been friendly, professional, and competent. We went toe to toe with the IRS and following Larry's counsel and direction, we won. The IRS agent shared with me later that had I not had Larry Bishins as my attorney, I would have lost my case costing me thousands of dollars in taxes and interest. When I inquired as to what the agent meant, he stated that Bishins knows more about the IRS code than most of the agents and the agents usually try to resolve the issue without court action.

We were referred to Larry Bishins from another law firm and he has been our attorney ever since. We can’t think him enough for all that he has done and his expertise to serve our issues. He’s the best tax attorney a client could ever have.

Excellent for tax issues and for help with the IRS
Larry was very helpful and persistent in a multiyear issue that I needed to resolve with the IRS. Without his help I would most likely have been far less pleased with my outcome. Larry saved me a large amount of money on my penalty. I recommend Larry without reservation.

Incredible Tax Attorney
I had the recent good fortune to come across Attorney Larry Bishins, he was recommended to me by the Florida Bar Association. I had been struggling with a longstanding IRS issue where I owed a very large sum from multiple tax years associated with a closed business, the oldest of which dated back to 1998. My case was further complicated by a divorce, joint 401K, an innocent spouse ruling, joint property, and previous levies and garnishments. Where other attorneys had failed, Larry succeeded and after eighteen months of strong negotiating with the IRS, I have a settlement agreement that makes me whole yet does not cripple me for the rest of my life. I will end up paying less than 10 cents on the dollar. The process involved multiple hearings, meetings, and a painstaking, comprehensive review of a bevy of documents. Because of the age of the cases, many items were no longer available but Attorney Bishins understood how that factor would impact the case and how to mitigate that issue. Most impressive was his intimate knowledge of not just tax law but IRS policies, procedures, and systems. Larry also has a sound respectful relationship with several of the IRS leaders which allowed him to get considerations perhaps not available to other attorneys. If you are in need of a tax attorney in Florida, it would be to your benefit to consult with Attorney Bishins.
