Absolutely The Best
Mr. Lazaro and his assistant Lori Gray are the best. When I first consulted with them I was nervous and scared, they are both kind and compassionate and put me at ease. Mr. Lazarow resolved an over $100,000 tax debt for me. I never had to interact with the IRS. I now have to pay the IRS only a little over $2000. His fees are reasonable, fair and manageable. I would highly recommend this team to anyone having any tax issues!

Honest and upfront
We used S. Lazarow for some IRS debt. The whole process is a lengthy one but we were kept in the loop the entire time. Lori his go to person was very easy to work with and made the process easier. IRS debt is a stressfull situation and they were top notch at handling it and keeping us calm while going through it. If we ever need any services again, this will be the firm we use. They also helped us with a CPA recommendation that has worked out very well also.

Treats A Person With Dignity No Matter the Circumstances
I went to Mr. Lazarow recently having worked with him many, many years ago. I didn't know who else to turn to. Lori Gray facilitated my opportunity to meet with him. Although I had unenviable circumstances, Mr. Lazarow treated me with dignity and professionalism. He spent time explaining a plan to work through my mess. I will forever be grateful for the time he gave me. I highly recommend him. His experience is impressive. He is an outstanding critical thinker, which everyone who needs a lawyer should look for in a tax attorney. Thank you, Mr. Lazarow and Lori Gray!

IRS - Taxes Owed
My husband and I contacted the Lazarow Law Firm last year to request a consult about back taxes and collection efforts that were already in progress by the IRS. Lori Gray immediately called us back to discuss the facts and we had an appointment with Mr. Lazarow the same week. It was clear within the first five minutes of the meeting that Mr. Lazarow was an extremely efficient, skilled and practical attorney. In addition to having a high level skill set, Mr. Lazarow (and Ms. Gray) were compassionate, kind, non-judgmental and reassuring. We hired Mr. Lazarow on the spot. The law firm took over from that point and all communication with the IRS was done by their office. They kept us informed along the way and constantly reassured us that we could go back to our normal life. Mr. Lazarow resolved our issues within 3 months and got us a more favorable result than we could ever have imagined. Mr. Lazarow's experience, knowledge of the IRS rules and how the agency works is invaluable. The fees are so reasonable and worth every penny- plus some! Highly recommend the Lazarow Law Firm. Simply the best out there. Thank you!

State and IRS
We had business tax problems with state, and IRS and that also want into our own personal taxes. Needless to say we were not sleeping at night. We tried to deal with both agencies ourselves ( Huge Mistake) and even hire a company we seen on TV and still did not receive resolution to our problems. ( Threats from these agencies are relentless, liens, attached bank accounts, etc ) Things were a nightmare. When we hired a CPA for our business she recommended Mr. Lazaro's law firm. We called and made a appointment and explained our problems to him. Mr. Lazarow had a very calming, and understanding demeanor and explained everything he could do to help us. Once we hire him he took complete control of our nightmare. I remember him telling wife and I to please go home and back to our normal lives and leave the worrying to him. From that day forward all the phones calls and threats from these agencies stopped. We never dealt with them personally again. Ms. Lori his paralegal was amazing and also had a very calming and delightful demeanor. Lori was beyond helpful in staying in touch with us to make sure we were not being troubled by the agencies and helped us gathered any records we needed for Mr. Lazarow. She deserved 5 stars herself. Then the phone call arrived from Mr. Lazarow that he has resolved our issues with the state and the IRS. Words alone fail me in expressing our happiness that, that part of our lives was behind us. That night we went to sleep smiling and woke up smiling. If you have tax issues please help yourself by contacting Mr. Lazaro's office. You will be so happy you did. If I could give him 10 stars I would, he earned them.

IRS business taxes
Very pleased with expertise and service we received. Sheldon walked us through the process and explained each step and what to expect. We were told that it could take 6 months to a year to see any kind of resolution from the IRS. There was a resolution in two months and I truly believe that quick resolution was due to Sheldon's knowledge of the system, the law and the people with whom he worked with. He knew who to contact to get our case to the right people in the IRS for review. Thank you!

IRS
I hired Mr. Lazarow to help with a situation that a family member found herself in with the IRS. Lori has been nothing but kind, friendly and professional. They really listen to you and answer any all questions you have no matter how dumb they might seem. Highly recommend their office if one finds themselves snarled in IRS issue. They go above and beyond for their clients!

Good Tax Experience
We contacted Mr. Lazarow because he had a high rating for dealing with taxes. We had years of tax issues that needed to be dealt with and we got burned from an out of state company for $4,000. So we needed someone local that we could have Great confidence in. We were in debt for at least $175,000. We had a more dificult case than most tax situations for debt to the IRS. Though it took longer than I wanted it to, I'm just glad were finishing it up now. He's good at what he does and his Paralegal Lori is super at what she does and knows her stuff and she answers your questions right away. I would highly recomend Mr. Lazarow when you need to deal with any tax problems.

IRS Issues
After owing over 100k in taxes from a bad business partner I tried for years to deal with the IRS. After my frustration met a boiling point I hired Sheldon and Lori. They made the whole process less stressful and ultimately got the IRS to deem me uncollectable. I am proud to say all the tax liens are gone as well. Highly recommend them!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED WITHOUT HESITATION!!!
Sheldon and Lori both worked with me to eliminate IRS taxes. My situation was very complicated and the results after working with this firm was even better than I had expected. I'm very pleased with the outcome and very happy to have worked with both Sheldon and Lori who made the whole process much less stressful. Both are very personable and I don't hesitate at all to recommend them. You will be pleased that you have them on your side.

Took the stress away
I was very stressed when I first went to see Sheldon, by the end of the first meeting I felt that there was hope. He assured me that he would handle everything and he did. Any contact with the IRS went thru him and his staff. His legal assistant Lori was extremely helpful. Finally, we did an offer in compromise that was accepted. If you have IRS problems he is the one to hire.

BEST TAX ATTORNEY EVER!!!!
I cannot say enough good things about the Lazarow Law Firm. Mr. Lazarow and his Administrative Assistant Lori Gray have helped me and my wife through numerous problems with the IRS over the past five years. Mr. Lazarow and Lori have treated us with dignity and respect through this time. I am 75 years old and am in poor health, and my wife is 73. We are both retired and on fixed incomes. To begin with, Mr. Lazarow arranged monthly payments with the IRS which we had to terminate, because I could no longer work due to my health. The IRS then threatened to take 15% of each of our Social Security monthly benefits. Mr. Lazarow and Lori were able to work with the IRS to have us declared uncollectable. At this time we remain uncollectable. Mr. Lazarow's fees are very reasonable. We consider ourselves fortunate to have discovered Lazarow Law, and recommend this law firm to anyone who needs help with IRS problems.

Attorney Lazarow was such a great help in relieving my stress with the problem I had with the IRS. He explained the path I should take to resolve this problem.

So happy with the service
When I first faced a huge tax debt with the IRS, I was so stressed out and had absolutely no idea how to sort it out and where to start with. I searched for tax lawyers and found about the Lazarow law firm on Avvo. After reading the excellent reviews I decided to handover my case to them. I am so glad I chose them as they did an absolutely amazing job! Mr. Lazarow and Lori are both very well experienced in their field and handled my case with lot of confidence. They are also very well organized and reassured me every step of the way. At the end they got my OIC approved way faster than expected and it changed my life in a really good way. I highly recommend the Lazarow Law Firm to anyone who is needing help with tax related issues. Thank you Mr. Lazarow and Lori for being the best and helping me out!

IRS Filing
Mr Lazarow and staff have been efficient and kind. A run in with the IRS can be extremely stressful and they have taken that away allowing my wife and I to go about our lives. They filed for and got uncollectible status for us and are retained to do an OIC this spring when we receive a 1099 for our foreclosure sale. Two weeks ago we were able to get financing for a new RV because they provided documentation and a letter of explanation for our IRS status. We cannot express how grateful we are for the good work Lazarow Law Office has done for us.

excellent
Sheldon took my case and worked on it for 7 years diligently acting in my interest with professionalism and acumen. He was able to resolve a major issue that I thought would drastically impact my life and alter my quality of life in a way I would have thought impossible. I would trust him with any tax related problems and have already referred my son and other friends to him.
