Client Testimonial:

“Great bankruptcy attorney. We believed we had a complicated bankruptcy case and met with Mr. Lynch to discuss it. He was engaging and made it easy for us to understand our bankruptcy options. He communicated clearly what the next steps in filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy would be ,and after we got him our documents, he followed through on what he said he was going to do. In fact, he was successful in removing a second mortgage lien from our property!”

These can include a back-log of non-filed income tax returns, large or overwhelming tax debts, the presence of a tax lien for unpaid taxes, an upcoming audit or even criminal charges for tax evasion or fraud. Any of these problems can turn a business or individual “upside down” if they are not handled properly and expediently (not surprising first piece of advice, get in early in the process regardless of where you stand).
