If the IRS is coming after you or your business you need expert legal representation. The IRS has been cracking down especially hard on those that have hidden their assets offshore. Seeking legal representation with a specific background and proven experience before the IRS revenue, collection, criminal divisions, or U.S. Federal Court is key.
Starting out in the financial industry, Jeffrey S. Freeman worked for KPMG, an international accounting firm, as an international tax attorney. Trained by and working with a former special agent and a revenue agent of the fraud division of the IRS, Mr. Freeman gained hands on experience understanding exactly how IRS agents work and operate. Trained in financial and legal matters he holds an accounting degree, law degree and LLM or masters of laws in taxation. In 2003 he left the financial sector to open the boutique tax practice, Freeman Tax Law.
