My job is helping you navigate the seemingly trackless expanses of the tax law. Whether you’re setting up a new business, planning for your family’s future, or dealing with unpaid taxes, I can help you chart a course to that goal.
I have been practicing law since 2003, and have focused on tax law since 2004. I have experience in a broad range of tax matters, including corporate, partnership and individual tax matters. I have also represented businesses and individuals in audits and examinations before the Internal Revenue Service and state tax agencies such as the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance and the New York City Finance Department.
I received my law degree from the University of Notre Dame Law School and my Master of Laws in Taxation from New York University.
I am admitted to practice in New York State as well as in the U.S. Tax Court and the Southern and Eastern District Courts of New York.
Taxes affect almost every aspect of your life: how you live, how you work, and how you play. My practice starts with tax but doesn’t end with tax. My job is putting together a plan that addresses every aspect of your situation.
How you start a business is determined as much by the tax laws as by any other laws; the income tax laws may determine whether you use a corporation, LLC or a partnership, the sales tax laws may determine where you locate your business, and the payroll taxes—including the new health care penalties—may determine whether you hire employees and if so, how many you hire.
How you live your life is also determined as much by the tax laws as by any other laws; the income tax laws and the rules on IRAs, 401(k)s, pensions and other plans may determine how you save for your retirement, state income taxes may determine where you live, and estate taxes may determine how you leave your belongings to your loved ones.
Your life is too important to be planned in a piecemeal manner; a plan that looks great from one perspective may be disastrous when viewed from another. Once we’ve discussed your goals we’ll develop and implement an integrated plan that efficiently addresses all of the issues involved—both tax as well as non-tax. I don’t work piecemeal because you don’t live your life piecemeal.
