In April, 2014, at or around 01:00 a.m., I got a phone call from the IRS informing me they had seized over $122K out of my savings account. The phone call took place while I was out of the country. In that moment, I did not realize whether this was a scam or what was going on. It was shocking.
After sending an email to Mr. Dunn (Steve), I received a fairly quick response via email. After talking with him over the phone first time, I felt he would be the guy to solve this case. He showed confidence with samples of his previous work where he had won cases such as this, including attorney fees.
After I paid the retainer, Steve took immediate action and filed motion after motion as necessary, beating the IRS and the government's response time.
During the course of this case, Steve dealt with the abuse of government power. However, he was persisitent at all times, and helped me held to the ground through the way.
In the first year, Steve used all the defenses and arguments he could use to protect our side of the case. Most attorneys that I had talked to all advised that it was not possible to get any attorney fees back.
Later in the first year, the government converted this Civil case into a Criminal case. After a year of investigating and finding nothing, the government decided to continue the Civil case.
Later, after Steve's persistently putting pressure on the government and calling the approprorate contacts, the government backed off and decided they want to settle the matter.
To make a long story short, after over two years of the arguments and patience, I finally got all my funds back and some attorney fees. Although we had very high chances of winning this case if it had gone to trial, we decided to settle the case.
Over the last two years, these cases have stopped happening from the IRS for legally sourced funds like in this case. However, it seems the government really needs to limit their power in certain areas in this country.
I would have loved to go all the way with this one, but after waiting two years, it was just too much.
Thanks again for all of your hard work Steve.
I highly advise, to those who are reading this, to talk with Steve if you are in any such situations as Civil Asset Seizures cases.

After moving abroad, our tax consultant had advised us to file a voluntary disclosure in connection with the FBAR reports. This resulted in a six-digit penalty. We were shocked and needed legal representation in the U.S. Luckily we found Mr. Dunn who advised us and handled the matter very professionally. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and fair. We highly recommend him and feel forever thankful.

Mr. Dunn has been an exceptional attorney for my family for many years. He is extremely effective at resolving perilous foreign tax (and estate) predicaments and relieving the burden placed on his clients. Mr. Dunn excels at examining problems for what the are and addresses them with clear confidence. At the same time, he is extremely patient in walking the neophyte through the maze of tax law and explaining his rationale for actions. Lastly, he is a caring compassionate man who genuinely cares for his clients.

My experience in both our conversations was exceptional and I really got the feeling he was intereted and that he cared about my situation. He was able to answer all my questions and provide me with instructions on what I needed to do.
I highly recomend Mr. Dunn for his knowledge on tax maters and his integretity.

I'm a perfectionist about my work, and I want that same quality work in professionals whose services I use. That is the quality I received from Steve Dunn. From the first moment I sat down w/ Steve, he put me at ease about the IRS matter I faced. He took immediate action to allow my life to get back to normal and relieve the stress I was under. He always took my phone calls and had time for my questions. He got the whole matter very favorably settled without any further stress to me. My experience with Steve Dunn: He is extremely knowledgable, he takes action immediately; and, he knows how to get a great bottom-line result for his clients.

I used this attorney to appeal my property tax assessment, which I felt was a little high, considering the housing market in Michigan.
He pulled many comparable properties in my area, and appeal to my city's Board. His passion for my case was clear, and the Board appreciated his organization and preparedness. In the end, he was able to get my property taxes lowered by more than two-thirds!
I would definately use his services again, and would certainly recommend him to others.

Steve is a knowledgeable, kind prince of a lawyer. I've dealt with quite a few attorneys in my time and Steve stands out as one of the best. Steve is very responsive, patient and precise. He also knows his sports and music. I highly recommend Steve as someone who can shed light on a somewhat dark topic with grace, concern and humor. .
