About Us

About The Team At IRS Hostage Negotiators

We’d like to provide you with an opportunity to get to know our firm and our values before you come to see us. We hope the following words from our founder and quick What to Expect summary will help you.

You may recall the old proverb, “he who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.” Treat an IRS audit as seriously as you would a murder trial.

  • Would you go to court without a lawyer?
  • Then why would you go before the IRS without competent representation?

The best way to end an IRS audit with a great outcome is to end it at the first meeting.

Whenever our firm represents clients in IRS audits, we perform a trial audit in our office before we ever meet with the IRS. This allows us to know which areas need more documentation or answers. When we meet with the IRS (without our client), we can quickly answer the auditor’s questions, provide documents and get to the bottom line. We always meet the IRS at their office or at ours, but NEVER at the client’s.

If you receive an IRS audit letter in the mail asking you to come in or to call for an appointment – keep in mind the your are entitled to and should get representation.

Why We Do What We Do

We believe in the life altering power of second chances!

I believe we all have made at least one mistake, at least once in our lives, that we wish we had handled differently. Some mistakes are small and easily remedied. Others can feel insurmountable. The power of the second chance is an incredible gift and I want to help our clients get the chance to change their future. So they can enjoy a future free of the stress and worry they are facing when we meet them. I started this firm to spend the rest of my working hours and minutes on this earth performing meaningful work. So I give my best every day to keep that purpose and overriding desire at the heart of everything I do.
