IRS Back Taxes, IRS Levy & Liens

IRS Offer In Compromise

There may be nothing more intimidating then receiving a notice of levy, lien or garnishment from the IRS. I have seen the results of what the IRS can and will do to those which are not properly represented while confronting one of the largest American institutions. As An Attorney of forty years I have see and heard it all. I hold a Master degree in Taxation and have dealt with the IRS and understand what the average consumer or business faces and the kind of challenges that are involved when working with the IRS.
If you have back taxes due the IRS I highly recommend you work with a highly qualified firm to develop a plan of action just as quick as possible. I also recommend that you steer clear of companies that purport  to have people on staff which are experts in working with the IRS. This practice area of taxation should be taken very seriously and not left to anyone but an expert in the field. As a prior adjunct professor at Temple University at the masters level I understand all to well what challenges you face.
The good news is there is relief afforded to Americans which suffer from owing back taxes. The types of relief available include, but are not limited to;
- IRS Tax Offer In Compromise
- IRS partial payment installment agreement
- Releasing A Bank Account Levy
- Releasing a wage Garnishment order
- IRS Tax Liens
- IRS Innocent Spouse Relief
- Currently not collectible status
Regardless of your situation there is a good chance we can effectuate a solution in your case. If you have failed to file taxes for prior years our firm will assist you in getting up to date as a part of our IRS Tax Resolution Service. For a free consultation and to confirm we can help you in your particular State please contact us at the below number. Our staff members are available seven days per week from 8AM to 8PM eastern time.

Fight your charges with a Houston criminal defense lawyer!
If you are facing any type of assault charges, you need to take the necessary steps to ensure that your rights are protected. Assault and domestic violence offenses can result in extremely serious penalties that could affect you for the rest of your life. In some circumstances, you could be refused access to your children or other family members. In cases of non-family assault, you could be prohibited from owning any type of firearm for any reason.
Because these types of charges can be so serious, our lawyers at The Martinez Law Firm have dedicated themselves to providing you with only the best defense against all types of assault charges. If you are convicted, you could end up spending up to 20 years in prison, depending upon the severity of your offense. Obviously the amount of harm done to the alleged victim of the assault is a major guideline when the courts are meting out punishment. For example, assault by threat can result in a misdemeanor charge but aggravated assault can be charged as a second degree felony.
If you own a gun or have a concealed handgun license an assault charge could result in the loss of abilitty to own a gun. It could even result in restricting you from employing anyone that has one.
Assault charges are often intertwined with domestic violence and orders of protection. If you have been involved in a situation that resulted in an assault charge, you will probably be facing other types of charges and legal action. With the help of a competent and experienced attorney, you can get the guidance you need to pursue a dismissal or reduction of charges. Call today to learn what we can do for your criminal case!

Houston Assault Attorney
Have you been charged with assault?
Under Texas Penal Law, you can be convicted of assault if you intentionally, knowingly or recklessly cause or threaten bodily injury to another person or if you intentionally or knowingly cause physical contact with another person while aware that the person will consider that contact to be offensive or undesirable. This type of criminal offense can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending upon the circumstances of the case. If you allegedly committed an assault offense against a public servant or elderly individual, you can face enhanced penalties. To defend against the possibility of these penalties, secure representation from a Houston criminal defense attorney like those at The Martinez Law Firm.
According to Texas Penal Code Chapter 22:
ASSAULT. (a) A person commits an offense if the person: (1) intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causes bodily injury to another, including the person's spouse; (2) intentionally or knowingly threatens another with imminent bodily injury, including the person's spouse; or (3) intentionally or knowingly causes physical contact with another when the person knows or should reasonably believe that the other will regard the contact as offensive or provocative.
This offense is typically charged as a Class A misdemeanor. However, in some circumstances assault could be counted as a felony of the third degree. Assault of an elderly individual or someone who is disabled is a felony. For more information on felony assault, please refer to § 22.01(b) of the Texas Penal Code.

Cómo el bufete de abogados Martinez puede ayudar a defender sus derechos

Desde delitos relacionados con drogas hasta cargos de DWI, es muy importante que usted cuente con un experimentado abogado de Houston de su lado, especializado en DWI, quien será capaz de invertir el tiempo y la energía necesarios en la protección de sus derechos jurídicos. En nuestro bufete, sabemos lo que está en juego cuando se trata de una acusación penal, usted puede confiar en que vamos a tomar esto en serio y en que haremos todo lo razonablemente posible para defenderlo. Independientemente de si se trata de cargos por un delito menor simple o si usted ha sido acusado de un delito grave, usted podrá confiar en el conocimiento legal y en la motivación de nuestro equipo. Estamos totalmente abocados a cada caso individual que asumimos y nos comprometemos a dar a nuestros clientes todo lo que razonablemente podamos con el fin de luchar por obtener el mejor resultado a su favor.

En el bufete de abogados Martinez, sabemos que el sistema de justicia penal no es para nada perfecto. Como defensores de la justicia, estamos dedicados a garantizar que las personas con las que trabajamos no sean víctimas de falsos arrestos o condenas injustas. Por lo tanto, vamos a hacer todo lo posible para investigar las factibles deficiencias de los procedimientos policiales así como también los errores cometidos durante el procedimiento de rutina para asegurarnos de que se haga justicia. Con el propósito de ilustrar este punto, analicemos una situación hipotética. Supongamos que John y su esposa están considerando divorciarse y tienen un leve desacuerdo cuando discuten la posibilidad de quién obtendrá la custodia de sus hijos al finalizar el procedimiento.

La esposa de John se enfada y llama a la policía, diciendo que John la golpeó en un intento por sacar ventaja. Antes de que él se de cuenta, independientemente del hecho de que nunca le levantó la mano, John enfrenta cargos penales por violencia doméstica. No sólo está en riesgo de ser pasible de sanciones penales, sino también de las posibles implicaciones en su caso pendiente de derecho de familia. Aun cuando la esposa de John tenga remordimiento de consciencia e intente retirar los cargos, esto ya no está más en sus manos; depende totalmente del fiscal continuar o no con el caso.

Si bien es un caso hipotético, hay personas desafortunadas en todo el país que han tenido que hacer frente a una situación muy similar a la descrita anteriormente. Aunque el sistema de justicia penal está diseñado para proteger a los ciudadanos estadounidenses, por desgracia, puede ser contraproducente y permitir que personas inocentes tengan que tolerar acusaciones que no merecen. En nuestro bufete, estamos dedicados a proteger a estas personas inocentes y a ayudarles a luchar por la defensa de su futuro y su libertad. No importa si usted está enfrentando cargos personalmente o si un ser querido ha sido arrestado, usted puede confiar en el compromiso de nuestro equipo especializado en defensa penal.

I recently had the unfortunate need to refer my sister to an Attorney in Houston. She was caught up in a possible DWI event and we could not take even one chance that we would not have the best possible Attorney money could buy. We consulted with three attorneys and felt most comfortable with Mr. Martinez. The initial matter that we needed Mr. Martinez for has now been resolved, thankfully. Thank god I have worked with very few attorneys in my life, but must say that Mr. Martinez was one of a kind. I have met very few people with his level of integrity and concern. I hope whoever reads this understands how thankful we are to Mr. Martinez and how strongly I recommend him.

Herman Martinez represented me in a DWI case. I found his information online and was in contact with him in a very short period of time. Herman lead me through the process and was available anytime I had questions or concerns. Herman won the ALR hearing which enabled me to keep my license and worked tirelessly from start to finish, but above all I felt like Herman represented me as if he was representing one of his family members. and I am grateful for all his help in resolving my court case.

My Houston lawyer Mr. Martinez worked three days in the row non-stop under time pressure to overcome mistakes made by my previous attorney. He was very organized, managed to gain more inside knowledge and reduce all charges against me.

CASE DISMISSED – RECORD CLEARED! My DWI case was serious, and involved a major accident (one vehicle rolled, two totaled, two people in the ER). The first lawyer I contacted recommended that I plead guilty and hope for a bearable sentence. Then, with just a few hours’ notice, he called and postponed our first meeting – for two weeks! I was left feeling lost and unimportant. Fortune and Coincidence led me to Herman Martinez. He met with me immediately, and took on my case with enthusiasm and zeal. It took time, but Herman got my case totally dismissed, then went further to secure an expungement. My driving record is clean, my insurance rates did not go up, and there is no criminal record to haunt me. Working with Herman is as comfortable as if you’ve known him all your life. He’s down to earth, sincere, respectful, patient, energetic, confident, reassuring, speaks frankly in plain language, and can be trusted with your confidential information. He doesn’t judge you by what you’ve been accused of, or care whether you’re innocent or guilty – he only wants to help you. When he says he wants you to call or text him, he means it, and will take all the time needed to explain things or answer questions. In preparation for my own trial, I watched many trials and observed many lawyers. Many of them followed the same steps in every case – I heard one say, “I ALWAYS do such-and-such,” and “I NEVER let my client do this-or-that.” Herman was different. He uncovered unique facts related to my specific case. He encouraged me to be involved, and listened to my ideas. The court dragged the case out over 8 months and 12 court dates, hoping we would give up. But Herman never tired of fighting for me, nor made me feel like I was taking too much of his time - and his price did not go up even with all that extra work and time!

Herman Martinez represented my second DWI. Other lawyers were getting dirty looks from the judge or not showing up to represent their clients. Herman Martinez answered every question I had at any time or day of the week, He was always on time every time. He seemed to be respected by the judge and knowledgable. He spoke up for me when I needed him too. He assessed my situation and helped me come to a resolution. I would recomend Herman Martinez as a legal reresentative.

I was very impressed with Mr. Herman Martinez and his professionalism. Mr. Martinez was involved from the very beginning and he really made me feel that everything was going to be fine. He would take the time to explain everything in both English and Spanish to me and my husband. He was very patient with us since we were on very unfamiliar territory which was very overwhelming. I would highly recommend the Martinez Law Firm when you need an experienced DWI attorney to help you and guide you through the legal maze. He did an exceptional job always treating us with respect and dignity. I can’t say enough how grateful we are to Herman Martinez.—S. Medina

After Mr Martinez took charge of my case, my stress went away. I followed the proposed plan and three charges got dropped in a very short time.
