Experienced White Collar Crime and Tax Defense Lawyer
When the IRS assigns a case to a special agent of its Criminal Investigation Division the very liberty of the taxpayer, who is the target of the investigation, is at stake. Criminal investigations have different objectives than ordinary civil audits and should not be treated the same by taxpayers and their representatives. Too often taxpayers make the mistake of talking to IRS agents without first retaining an attorney experienced in handling federal investigations, grand jury matters and federal trials. IRS special agents conduct investigations to gather evidence to indict and convict the taxpayers they investigate.
