Caring and Knowledgeable
Marvin was very helpful in dealing with my situation with the IRS. He helped me work out a good resolution and was very persistent in following up with them. If you want someone who cares about your case and follows up, then he is one.

Top Tax Attorney!
I interviewed a few attorneys prior to meeting with Marvin, but none of them met my expectations besides Marvin. From our first meeting, he made me feel comfortable and let me know even though the process is long that he would be there to fight for me as hard as he could. He did just as promised and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would recommend him to anyone who wants an attorney that is compassionate, knowledgeable, and a fighter!

Has your back
Marvin is an incredible attorney. He has helped my husband and I with IRS issues that has plagued us for the past several years. He responds immediately and has helped ease our minds with results that we are more than pleased with. I would go to Marvin and his practice for just about any legal matter because I trust him enough to guide me in the right direction!

Thank you!
I went from owing the IRS 200k+ to $300.00 total. Yes, $300 total! Unbelievable. Marvin was beyond understanding with me, patient, super kind and as professional as can be! Forever indebted to him!

Marvin was great!!! I was working with a different attorney for over 2 years and that attorney was a waste of time and money. I owed over $90,000 in taxes and when I came to Marvin, he took care of the balance in less than 3 months! That’s what u call someone who takes care of his clients and doesn’t give u a run around. He was there with all my questions and concerns anytime of the day! I highly recommend him if you need someone who cares not just for himself but for his clients!

Fabulous Tax Attorney
Marvin Karana was fabulous, he is very respectful, professional and talented tax attorney. My husband and I owed $21,000, to State and $86,000.00 in Federal. Marvin Settled our Mi State tax for $100.00 and Federal (still pending) but expect $50.00. He was referred to me via another Attorney, and she was right he is very Good. I would like to add that, when taxes get behind you have a paper nightmare, they are the worst and penalties keep accruing. I was afraid to call them and set up payment arrangements, dealing with such a huge collections company. We hired another Company with the IRS problem, they made it worse. Marvin cut through all the BS and got it done, He always kept me informed. I would recommend highly to anyone. Thanks Marvin..

Satisfied customer
He did a miracle for us. Fully released us front huge state and federal liabilities. It took awhile, but he stayed on the government and got them to send us letters of release for a token offering. We can now start rebuilding a future without the black clouds of debt over every action we do. We highly recommend Marvin, don't hesitate to get him involved in your situation. Thanks again Marvin.

Tax Issues
I had a debt with the State of Michigan and the IRS for close to half a million dollars and retained Marvin and he settled both balances for $100 each. I cannot begin to explain how great he was in this whole process. I recommend using Marvin for any tax issues he went above and beyond all expectations I had.

Best Tax Attorney
In a matter of 13 months, Marvin Karana changed my life. After 16 years of owing the IRS a considerable amount of money, Marvin was able to clear my debt for mere pennies. He was quick to resolve this matter, courteous, non-judgmental and kept me up to date with my case. I am forever grateful to Marvin and gladly give him high praise and recommendation. BEST TAX ATTORNEY AROUND!

Guiadance along the way
Attorney Marvin Karana was referred to me by a friend. From day one he respected and understood my situation. The letters and threats from the I.R.S were overwhelming. I'm a young man who hit a rough patch. I'm not a criminal or out to scam anyone. Attorney Karana understood this and approached my case on a personal level. Attorney Karana made himself available to me which made the situation much less stressful. Mr Karana was able to stop the threats and show the I.R.S my side of the story. He was able to get me a unimaginable deal. The settlement changed my life. Mr Karana was with me every step of the way. Explaining what was going on and our strategy to handling it. I consider Marvin a life long friend and somebody I will definitely look for guidance in the future.

Tax Resolution
My husband and I sought Mr. Karana's expertise to resolve an issue with our State and Federal Taxes. The first thing that struck me was that he did his best to calm my anxiety and fears. It was a terrifying situation for me and I was feeling quite defeated. The services he offered were always very professional with the added advice to help us address our situation. He was always in contact with us and answered all questions and concerns promptly (even in the evening and on weekends). We have reached a resolution, thanks to Mr. Karana and are very pleased with the outcome. We would highly recommend Mr. Karana and appreciate his expertise and excellent service. Thank you, Marvin!!!

Tax
I hiired Marvin for my Tax issues for IRS, my case was very complicated and nobody was willing to work. I hired another company to work on my case before him, but they couldn't do it. Marvin took my case and completed with my 100% satitisfaction.
Response from Marvin Karana August 29, 2017
You must be careful before hiring a tax firm. Many are not law firms but are structured as "marketing companies". Their goal is to "sell you." Fortunately, I was able to get involved and achieve a settlement for you. I am glad we were able to work together, please feel free to contact me with any future questions or concerns. I am here to help!!!
