When Tax Problems Threaten Your Business, Your Livelihood or Your Future,

Are you facing a high-stakes tax controversy at either the state or federal level? You have no time to waste. When there is no room for error and too much to lose, clients turn to attorney Lawrence Brown and Brown, PC, in Dallas-Fort Worth.

As a boutique tax controversy and tax litigation firm, we limit the clients we represent so that we can provide superior client service. Once you recognize that you have been targeted by the IRS in a tax audit, get in touch with a tax attorney before making contact with the IRS.

Civil Tax Matters

As former trial lawyer for the U.S. Department of Justice Tax Division, Lawrence Brown understands the inner workings of the IRS. He understands how to intervene in the early stages of a tax controversy to work out a favorable resolution.

  • Payroll or employee/contractor-related classification tax problems: We represent employers, finding resolutions that keep their businesses open. See our case studies page for our past results related to Trust Fund Recovery penalties.
  • Negotiating payment terms: We’ll review whether an installment agreement, offer in compromise, currently not collectible status or innocent spouse relief might halt collection efforts
  • Lien, levy or garnishment: IRS collection matters can complicate your life. We can help remove these and find an overall solution to your tax problems
  • Unfiled returns and penalty abatement: We can help you come back into tax compliance and minimize the associated penalties.

When a tax dispute cannot be resolved at the IRS audit, we will pursue all available administrative remedies through an IRS appeal or tax court. We also handle matters in bankruptcy court that deal with tax deficiency claims, tax liens and the discharge of tax liabilities. Our attorneys have also litigated refund cases in federal district court and before the court of federal claims.

We assist clients on business employment and tax matters and handle Texas state and local tax audits and appeals.

White Collar Charges And Associated Tax-Related Criminal Cases

Attorney Lawrence Brown is adept at strategies to prevent or limit harmful consequences of a criminal investigation or indictment. From allegations of neglecting to report cash proceeds to multi-millionaires accused of hiding assets offshore or committing employment tax fraud, taxpayers charged with attempting to evade or defeat tax collection through illicit methods are at great risk.

We represent taxpayers charged with willful failure to pay, failure to file, fraud and false statement and numerous other federal tax crimes. Often these tax charges are added as part of a white collar investigation into embezzlement and many fraud-related matters. In these cases, you need an experienced defense attorney who knows tax law to mitigate the consequences.
