How to hire the right IRS defense attorney

 

London, United Kingdom - July 8, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) When you need protection from the IRS, finding the right defense attorney is the first step. Unfortunately, if you don't have a family member in law you're probably not equipped with the knowledge you need to choose the right defense attorney to represent you. And that's not your fault! It's not like there's a course on hiring an attorney in public school. In this article, we're going to talk about a few of the tactics you can use to hire the right attorney the first time.


Make sure they are a dedicated IRS defense attorney

The best type of lawyers will have a niche. With a case as complicated as negotiating with the IRS, you will want to make sure that your defense attorney spends one hundred percent of their time practicing tax law. This same logic applies to nearly every type of case. If you're having issues with real estate, contact a real estate lawyer. You will always have a better experience with an attorney who is dedicated to a specific type of law.

Don't settle on the first attorney you find

With Google at your fingertips, it's tempting to pick the first result and run with it. Resist that temptation. Legal representation is a big investment financially and in your future. You will want to 'shop around' and make sure that you speak to at least 5 different IRS defense attorneys with specialization in tax law.


Look for hard and soft skills

'Hard skills' are defined by technical knowledge. 'Soft skills' are defined by character. To increase your chances of positive negotiations with the IRS, you will want to make sure that you have both in your defense attorney. With a few smart questions, you can learn a lot about both sets of skills.

  • Do they have the time for you? If it seems like the attorney is flying by the seat of his or her pants, they're already running on empty. More importantly, if they are rushing you through questions you will quickly find that they won't have time for your case.
  • How much experience do they have? The more experience the better. At the end of the day, the IRS is able to prosecute in 80% of the cases they take to court. By that logic, you need a lawyer that has the experience to be in the 20th percentile.
  • Have they worked cases like yours? Even with a wealth of experience, you want to make sure that they can prove they have an understanding o the unique challenges facing you in your case. After all, even if someone has worked 20 years in tax law- that doesn't mean they've worked a lot of tax fraud cases.

Make sure they are someone you can talk to

Like any service agreement, you'll want to make sure that your defense attorney is a person you can stand to be around. Call it superstitious, but there is certain merit to the synergy between attorney and client when negotiating with the IRS.

Final thoughts: Start your search as early as you can

Naturally, when you know you need an attorney- you need one fairly quick. Start the process as soon as you can. Neglect can quickly turn in to 'taking who's available' rather than finding a good defense attorney. If you know you need to return the paperwork in two weeks, get started tonight.
