Story
Introduction
Although some people assume that tax law is boring, I have always found the opposite. Tax law touches every area of people’s lives – it affects careers, investments, health, divorce and many other areas. At the end of the day, if I can keep a good person from going to jail or I can prevent someone’s financial life from being destroyed, then I’ve succeeded in my mission.

I am a California State Bar Certified Tax Specialist and a former Senior Trial Attorney for the Internal Revenue Service's Office of Chief Counsel. I have been featured as a Super Lawyer in the field of Tax Litigation by Los Angeles Magazine. I have also been quoted as a tax expert, by Business Week, Accounting Today, the BNA Daily Tax Report, the Daily Journal, the National Law Journal, The Daily Beast, USA Today, Palm Beach Daily News, Money Laundering, the Los Angeles Daily Journal and Tax Analyst, and testified as an expert witness on Federal tax matters.

I have appeared on ABC Television’s Good Morning America show, Fox Business News, and TV One Access. I have also spoken before the California Continuing Education of the Bar, the California Society of CPAs, the UCLA Tax Controversy Institute, the California State Bar Tax Section, the Consumer Rights Litigation Conference, the California Trial Lawyers Association, the ABA, and the National Association of Enrolled Agents. I was a guest speaker at the University of Southern California and am frequently a guest on KFWB radio to discuss tax problems and tax controversy.

My articles have appeared in the California Lawyer, Daily Journal, Taxation for Lawyers, Los Angeles Lawyer, The Consumer Advocate, Family Law News, California Tax Lawyer, Journal of Tax Practice and Procedure, and Journal of Taxation of Investments.

A new provision may be passed allowing the federal government to revoke, deny or limit a U.S. citizen's passport if the individual owes more than $50,000 in tax debt. 

I was featured in CNN Money in an article titled, "Overdue Taxes? You Could Lose Your U.S. Passport." Please click below to read what I have to say about this new provision and what it will mean if it is passed.
