How We Can Help

Talk to a Tax Lawyer...FIRST!

Our founding attorney, Karen J. Lapekas, served as a Senior Attorney for the IRS Office of Chief Counsel in Miami, Florida. There, she saw countless cases where people lost cases against the IRS because they represented themselves (and were not familiar with the law) or received incompetent representation from “tax relief companies” they found on T.V. Unlike those companies, we don’t believe in taking every case or making unrealistic promises. Before we take a case, we discuss your potential options, including whether you may be able to resolve the issue on your own!
