Trial of a criminal tax case requires knowledge of and experience with criminal law, trials and appeals, and tax law.

As evidenced by the firm’s practice areas, Mac has extensive experience in the areas of civil and criminal tax controversies of all types, ranging from audits and criminal investigations, many of which were dropped, to appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Because of his extensive litigation experience, together with his strong military background and West Point, Airborne, Ranger, Infantry, Jumpmaster, Special Forces “take no prisoners” attitude, it should not be surprising that, despite the small size of his firm, Mac was called upon to represent two governors, three state senators, CIA operatives, and a major U.S. airline.
