Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Tax LL.M



A Tax LL.M. is a specialized degree awarded to tax attorneys who complete advanced studies in tax law.  The program typically lasts two semesters and is completed after the attorney has already obtained his or her J.D. degree.

An attorney does not require a Tax LL.M. to practice tax law, but because today’s tax code has become so complex, many tax attorneys find it beneficial to pursue advanced studies in tax law if they become serious about specializing in tax law.  The Tax LL.M. degree is a recognition that these attorneys have completed advanced training in tax law and are tax specialists.

Virtual Consultations?


Most all consultations are done virtually.  You will meet your attorney via camera on our video conferencing site.  If you decide to engage us, our meetings can remain virtual; however, there are circumstances where we meet in person.
