DeBlis and DeBlis offers vigorous and meticulous criminal tax defense. Our tax experience serves us well in representing clients faced with criminal tax investigations conducted by the IRS, the Tax Division of the Department of Justice, or local United States Attorneys’ offices
Most criminal tax cases are highly defensible. However, many criminal tax cases are handled by lawyers with no special background or training in tax. With tax being such a specialized area of the law, this has the potential to be disastrous.
If you are under criminal investigation or are being charged with a tax crime, you need a defense lawyer who understands the intricacies of the tax law and who is willing to take your case all the way to a jury. Michael DeBlis is that attorney.
Michael’s unique background in tax law puts him into an elite category of criminal defense attorneys who specialize in criminal tax defense. With an LL.M. in Tax, Michael has a solid grounding in all of the major areas of federal taxation. He understands the tax code in its most minute detail along with the theoretical and policy issues upon which it is based. That gives Michael a distinct advantage in defending criminal tax cases.
Why is it so important for your defense attorney to understand the intricacies of the tax law? Proving that a taxpayer made errors is easy, but proving that those errors were intentional is the most difficult part of the government’s case. A vigorous defense to a criminal tax charge must be grounded in the tax law and must show a jury that the errors were not intentional.
With Michael on your side, you can feel confident that you are being represented by a seasoned trial lawyer with the skills and courage to stand up to the government and attack their case.
