Philosophy of my practice

I believe that it is necessary to pay taxes.  However, my practice philosophy is to help clients keep their necessary taxes to a minimum, wherever legally possible.

I help clients plan their tax affairs appropriately.  When necessary, I also represent their interests aggressively before the IRS, both administratively and in court, to ensure that they are treated fairly and pay no more than legally required.

Attorney/Client Relationship:

What constitutes an attorney/client relationship?

  • An attorney/client privilege is created when a person seeks help and advice from an attorney, as to matters within that attorney’s professional competence, and the attorney agrees to provide that advice.
  • How to enter into an attorney/client relationship with me: we agree orally or in writing that I will represent you.
  • Because the attorney/client relationship is personal and privileged, any communication with me that you wish to have kept in confidence should be via mail, phone, or fax, or of course, in person.
  • My posting of material on this web site DOES NOT establish any attorney/client relationship between you and me.
