Alexander Kugelman is an attorney concentrating on tax controversies, domestic and international tax compliance, and tax collection defense. Mr. Kugelman counsels and represents individuals, small businesses, and estates.
His experience includes four years of federal government court experience at the U.S. Tax Court and a U.S. District Court. That background blends substantive tax law knowledge with administrative and litigation experience. This unique combination differs from that of an accountant or a general practitioner attorney.
Kugelman Law was created as an alternative to overpriced law firms and disreputable tax resolution companies.
Alexander was motivated to start his firm while working at the U.S. Tax Court. He recognized that taxpayers often approached compliance and litigation with the IRS from the wrong perspective. Often, taxpayers would become positional and adversarial, rather than finding points to achieve compliance or resolution. Sadly, those taxpayers were encouraged by unscrupulous legal counsel seeking to leverage fear of IRS for unconscionable fees.
"I founded Kugelman Law to guide individuals and businesses through seemingly overwhelming tax and legal issues," Alexander said. "As a young attorney, I learned valuable lessons first hand as a clerk to U.S. District and U.S. Tax Court judges. No lesson was more important than that the quality of legal representation could be the most important factor in obtaining a positive outcome."
In other words, thorough and tactical representation usually obtained more favorable results than those without competent representation regardless of the law.
Alexander set out to start a new type of tax law firm for the ordinary taxpayer. A firm that prided itself on efficiency rather than billable hours. To that end, the firm has expanded its expertise and capacity by developing a team with diverse backgrounds and skills.
