As an experienced Chicago Tax Attorney with more than 40 years experience, my goal is to assist clients in resolving matters with the Internal Revenue Service as painlessly, expeditiously and economically as possible, with a minimum of disruption to their daily lives.
I represent individual and corporate clients, large or small, in all aspects of and at all levels of federal and state tax. This includes everything from non-filing and questions concerning the presentation of information on tax returns, to handling audits, appeals and trials before the United States Tax Court and the Courts of Appeals, as well as refund litigation in the District Courts and the Claims Court. As a trusted Chicago Tax Attorney, I am adept at resolving a broad range of tax issues, including:
- Negotiating Favorable Settlements
- Offers in Compromise
- Collection Due Process Appeals
- Innocent Spouse cases
- Employment Tax cases
- Penalty Abatement
- Audit and Assessment issues
If the tax already has been assessed, I handle Collection Division problems including working out monthly installment agreements and Offers in Compromise. I have been quite successful in having wage levies released promptly and federal tax liens released or subordinated, depending on the circumstances.
I also handle employment tax problems, including trust fund recovery penalties and questions of independent contractor vs. employee.

My office is on LaSalle Street, a few blocks from the IRS District, Appeals and Counsel Offices, as well as from the building where the United States Tax Court holds its sessions in Chicago. Although based in Chicago, I service clients anywhere in the State of Illinois and the northwest portion of Indiana. Due to the nature of IRS practice, I also have successfully served clients as far away as Florida, the East Coast and the West Coast. I have successfully handled IRS audits, appeals and trials in the United States Tax Court.
As a client, you can also be assured that you will be copied on all correspondence and kept
apprised as your case progresses. I will fully explain and review with you all actions taken or
to be taken, making certain that you understand and agree with the proposed action.
