State Bar of California
Super Lawyers

About Us

We are a five attorney boutique tax litigation and tax controversy law firm. Our tax controversy attorneys only represent clients with tax problems or tax disputes; whether those tax problems are with the IRS, the California Franchise Tax Board (FTB), the State Board of Equalization (SBE) or the Employment Development Department (EDD). All of our tax lawyers have formerly practiced as trial attorneys with the Internal Revenue Service's Office of Chief Counsel.

Our goal is to provide customized solutions for difficult tax problems. When it comes to taxes one size doesn't fit all. The first step is to meet with our clients, whether they are individuals, business or estates, to discuss their situation, and to determine a possible course of action. When the client is ready to proceed we begin a partnership in which the client is involved at every important step in the decision making process.

We understand that dealing with the IRS, the FTB, SBE or EDD can be a very stressful experience. Our goal is not only to minimize the taxes our clients owe, but also to reduce their stress by taking the weight of dealing with the taxing agencies on a day-to-day basis off their shoulders.
