Whether you live close to the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania/New Jersey metropolitan area or are calling from far away to set up a long-distance consultation. Mr. Adelman's consultation practice is national in scope. Wherever you live, respond to the grand jury or the Internal Revenue Service one step at a time. The most crucial step is finding the right attorney to handle your case. We recommend:
- Consider making contact with other experienced tax attorneys specializing in IRS (and/or state) tax compliance and/or federal grand jury matters. Why? This will help you determine the prices (hourly rates, retainer requirements, willingness to be flexible as to terms and other costs, obtain estimates if possible) of comparably credentialed tax attorneys with extensive, focused tax controversy experience. There is a lot at stake. Costs should not be your sole consideration, but learn a bit about the "market" as well as the style, comfort and communication skills of other lawyers before (or after) contacting Mr. Adelman.
- Once you have determined comparable rates, please phone or email Mr. Adelman to set up a no-fee phone interview. Again, years of legal experience geared to criminal and large civil tax controversies are crucial no matter whom you choose to represent your interests. After you have talked with Mr. Adelman, he will then start to help you determine the most appropriate, cost-effective response to whatever you are facing.
