I started my legal career as a tax lawyer and spent my first 15 years as a practicing attorney advising small and large clients on complex tax planning opportunities both in the U.S.A. and abroad.  Whether you are looking to start a business or already run a successful one, you need to be aware of (and be taking maximum advantage of) U.S. federal and state tax laws.  Do you have the right legal entity structure?   Have you selected the optimal entity tax classification (independent of its legal classification)?  Are you currently in a dispute with the IRS or state tax office?  Have you considered tax factors in your business decisions?  Call me for an initial consultation about your tax questions or problems.
