Orlando, Florida, Tax Evasion and Tax Fraud Lawyers
At the Orlando, Florida, criminal defense law firm of Leventhal & Slaughter, LLC we have helped hundreds of individuals and businesses successfully fight tax evasion and tax fraud criminal charges.
The key to our success? Firm founding attorneys Bob Leventhal and Harrison "Butch" Slaughter served as Assistant and Chief Assistant U.S. Attorneys with the United States Department of Justice and the United States Attorney's Office. We also worked in the criminal tax division in Washington D.C. We understand the prosecution office's methods and its limitations.
There are currently only 2,500 IRS agents, and they work to oversee the tax filings of hundreds of millions of Americans. These agents only investigate about 12,000 cases per year, and indict only 1,500 cases nationally.
Our goal is to make sure you are "winnowed out" of the indictment group before you are charged. How do we do this? Primarily by effectively demonstrating that the case carries a high "risk of litigation." A risk of litigation threatens to waste the criminal tax division's resources and risks a defeat in trial.
We are skilled at identifying ways to persuade government officials that tax fraud and evasion did not occur or did not occur intentionally. We have successfully had numerous charges dropped or turned into civil cases which do not carry with them the threat of a criminal conviction and prison time.
