When an IRS or Massachusetts civil tax investigation turns into a criminal tax investigation, it is crucial to obtain experienced and effective legal representation as quickly as possible.

Rick and one of his colleagues, a former criminal attorney with the Tax Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, form a powerful team representing taxpayers in complex and contentious criminal tax controversies. This multi-faceted approach enables us to objectively assess the government’s case, advise you of your alternatives, and vigorously assert available defenses on your behalf.

We represent taxpayers in investigations into alleged tax fraud or evasion, unreported income, conspiracy charges, so-called “eggshell audits”, parallel proceedings and unfiled tax returns. We also can assist with voluntary disclosures, FBAR proceedings, unique criminal tax defenses, payroll tax investigations, offshore bank account problems, and deferred prosecution agreements.
