When an IRS agent knocks on the door or a taxpayer receives a notice of a tax investigation, the shock and fear can be enormous. After all, the targeted taxpayer faces real consequences that could include six or seven-figure debts, liens, property seizure, and, most frightening of all, incarceration. Texas criminal tax Lawyer Lawrence Brown formerly worked as a DOJ Tax Division trial attorney before founding the firm. He, therefore, understands the strategies and tactics that U.S. prosecutors employ and knows how to successfully challenge them.
Investigation witnesses and targets cannot afford to wait to hire counsel, and with so much at stake, they should seek the best representation they can find. Brown, PC has 25 years of experience representing high-profile clients in some of the biggest criminal tax cases to be prosecuted by the government.
Protecting High-Profile Individuals Charged With a Tax Crime
Our clients include some of the best-known names in business, entertainment and sports, as well as high-profile professionals in the financial, legal, medical and business sectors. We recognize the potential life-changing consequences of criminal prosecution. Beyond the devastating financial repercussions and the loss of freedom, individuals face extensive damage to their reputations and careers.
The government may claim to just have a few questions or just want to view a document. Even if that is the case, this is the time to hire an experienced Texas criminal tax lawyer. Cooperation should not equate to giving up rights.
Our goal is to stop the government from filing charges, which we can often do if we are retained during the early investigative stage. In addition, through our early involvement, we can prevent prosecutors from finding incriminating evidence and be in a strong position to negotiate a favorable settlement.
Corporate Tax Crimes
Having represented some of the biggest names in the corporate world, we have a proven history of reaching equitable settlements quickly. We handle tax fraud claims that involve such complex issues as tax evasion, money laundering, corrupt practices, investor fraud, accounting fraud and illegal foreign accounts. Our team has been successful in saving corporations millions of dollars in tax fraud penalties, back taxes, interests and fines.
Our firm also offers unique strategic communication services to deliver expert PR advice in collaboration with our litigation team to minimize impact of the tax investigation on reputation and brand. This one-of-a-kind service also avoids a common problem that outside PR professionals do not understand the law and may make damaging incriminating statements. Our strategic communication approach recognizes that public relations and legal defense should go hand in hand.
