Why Hire Us?

Why hire a Tax Attorney and not a CPA, Enrolled Agent ("EA") or Tax Preparer? There are two primary reasons to do so - client confidentiality, and complete counsel. It’s only with a tax attorney that you have the important “attorney-client privilege” in terms of confidentiality concerning communications.  The "federally authorized tax practitioner" privilege under I.R.C. Sec. 7525 protects discussions only in civil matters. If a case turns criminal, the privilege is no longer applicable. In addition, only attorneys are legally exempt from being forced to testify against their clients should the IRS prosecute the client criminally. On the other hand, the CPA, EA or tax preparer can be forced to testify. Finally, only a tax attorney can communicate all of a client’s options, including legal options such as tax bankruptcy. CPA’s, EA's and tax preparers may not give legal advice.  It only makes sense that if the IRS or State has attorneys working on their behalf, then you should too!


When providing legal assistance for our clients, our team at The Jefferson Firm, LLC is guided by four core values:


    We’re honest in presenting the facts.
    We exhibit integrity and professionalism.
    We are knowledgeable.
    We responsibly manage the resources we have been entrusted with, and perform all work with the highest level of care and attention to detail.



We are well equipped to handle your case from "COMMENCEMENT to CONCLUSION."
