PRACTICE LIMITED TO TAX ADVICE & TAX LITIGATION, INCLUDING ALL CIVIL AND CRIMINAL TAX CONTROVERSIES

I've been stressed out for years with notices from the IRS on notices that could take me decades to repay, and only if they didn't charge interest and penalties. Clifford Ribner went through all of the paperwork I received and several other sources. He carefully reviewed the details and ultimately noticed the most important thing. I'm not personally liable. I've saved more than I could not have paid back in a lifetime.

After fighting with the IRS for over a year about an unfair tax audit for one year, the IRS decided to audit back 6 years. I knew that I had to hire an attorney. I spoke with several tax attorneys but Cliff Ribner was the only one who really seemed to listen to my problem. He wiped my teas away, and made me feel much better about my situation. Hiring him was the best decision that I made. He is not only and expert in tax laws, but he is caring and what he charged me doesn't even compare to the tens of thousands and thousands of dollars that he has saved me. If you ever need a tax attorney, save yourself a lot of time and just call him first. You will not regret it!
