Areas of Practice

Civil Tax/Collection

Whether your civil tax problem concerns an IRS or state tax notice, failure to file returns, lien, levy, seizure of property, Tax Court case, Court of Appeals, administrative appeal, or audit, we can assist you in considering your viable options and developing the best strategy.

Some options may include, among others: installment agreement (IA), offer in compromise (OIC), statute of limitations (CSED), currently not collectible (CNC), bankruptcy (BK), pay or borrow and pay, or a combination of these.

Bankruptcy Planning

We have assisted clients in discharging through bankruptcy millions of dollars in income and other tax debts. But the rules are complicated and a miscalculation of even one day could be devastating.

Tax/bankruptcy planning requires detailed analyses of all facts, numbers crunching, and evaluating the potential results, as well as careful strategic planning.

Criminal Tax

In a criminal case one cannot “settle up” with IRS merely by paying the tax, penalty and interest that might be owed. Once you are aware that you are under investigation, we can assist in trying to convince the government to drop the case. There are several levels at which this is possible.

The investigation can take as long as six years, from start to indictment, and usually cases take two to four years. If the case proceeds forward, we will advise you of your options concerning negotiating a plea agreement or going to trial, as well as issues concerning the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which dictates what kind of jail sentence and/or fines you could face.

Foreclosure Offense & Credit Card Debt Settlement

We are recognized leaders in the field of “foreclosure defense” – what we like to call “foreclosure offense.” Before the field was widely known, Mac wrote his “Foreclosure Defense Memo.” Mac and Nathan were on the bleeding edge of legal development with their law journal article, ‘From a Syntactical Fog into an Impassible Swamp’ – Fed Up Mortgage Foreclosure Judges Find ‘No Life on MERS.’

Often, our tax clients owe credit card and other unsecured debt. We regularly work with our clients’ creditors to settle that debt outside of bankruptcy, achieving results with which our clients are very pleased and allowing our clients to gain a fresh start on their lives.


Mac MacPherson has nearly four decades of litigation experience ranging from civil RICO suits to defense of federal tax evasion charges. Mac has tried over 55 criminal tax cases in 24 states.

The sooner you have on board an experienced litigator, who is certified in both tax and in criminal law, the better prepared you become. In the military tradition, MacPherson, a West Point graduate, the “Courtroom Commando,” calls it “full metal jacket.”

Civil, Criminal, and Bankruptcy

There are major differences between civil and criminal tax matters and bankruptcy, but there are connections between the three, and each area must be evaluated with consideration of the others.

We take an holistic view to problem solving: the “West Point Systems Engineering” approach.

Offshore/Tax Shelters

If you have “invested” money offshore, or are involved in a tax shelter (what IRS calls an “abusive tax shelter”), you need to know how IRS proceeds in such cases and what options may be available to you. We represent clients in both areas.

Criminal Case Responsibility Options

It is important that you hire someone to represent you NOW if you have not yet done so. Our responsibility in the case can vary: we can do everything from taking on full responsibility for the case, to acting as a consultant to you proceeding pro se, or acting as a consultant to your local counsel. Retainer and fees vary depending on responsibility.
