I hired RJS Law to assist me with my tax liability. I had been the victim of a horrible marital situation which resulted in me owing over $360,000 in trust fund liability for past due payroll taxes. My Corporation ended up in bankruptcy, but I still had to deal with the personal exposure.
Jonathan and Ronnie at RJS Law were quick to formulate a plan. They were up front, realistic and direct about what I could expect and, together we decided to attempt an Offer in Compromise. The fight was Long,,,and Tough but, with Jonathan as my advocate, the IRS finally agreed to settle my $360,000 liability for $2,500. I couldn't have been more thrilled!
The best thing about RJS Law is their customer service. I was very worried about the entire situation but Jonathan was always there to answer any questions I had. He laid out a clear plan for me to follow and helped me along the way. Jonthan is great with follow-through and always returned my calls. I Highly Recommend hiring RJS Law for any and all tax needs! They are the best of the best! I am SO Thankful for all their efforts in my behalf. Jonathan was very knowledgeable of the tax laws, and was more than just my Attorney - he was my friend. I knew he and RJS Law Firm cared about me, my case and my future.

I have worked with a couple of tax attorneys with the same issue, all of them were chop shop style with no customization. Further, you could never get a hold of anyone. He gets back to me with in a couple of hours at the most, and most importantly solved my issues while making me feel like things are being handled properly, which they were.

Jonathan Amitrano is extremely efficient, trustworthy and kind. He is very knowledgeable and gets the job done.
More important was his willingness to give me the time to decide what was best for me,. Simply put; he could not have done a better job!
