Summary

Michael Dallo, CPA, JD, LL.M., the founder of Dallo Law Group in San Diego, California, is both a tax attorney and certified public accountant (CPA). Unlike most tax attorneys who usually only have a J.D., the basic law degree, he also holds a masters of law degrees (LL.M.) in tax, is a Certified Tax Law Specialist, and is an adjunct professor of taxation in the Masters of Tax program at the University of San Diego. His dual background in both law and accounting, his dedication to the tax profession, his passion to educate in tax, and his persistence in the face of difficult challenges give Michael a winning, strategic advantage that enables him to represent clients far better before the IRS and state tax agencies than the vast majority of tax attorneys.

Before he was an attorney, Michael founded a CPA firm where he prepared tax returns for individuals and small businesses, building an outstanding winning record representing clients in tax audits. Before that, he worked as a certified public accountant (CPA) in the Tax Department of Sempra Energy, a multi-national Fortune 500 Company, where he helped to resolve multi-million dollar tax disputes. He also worked in the Tax Department of PricewaterhouseCoopers in Paris, France and the Tax Division of the United States Department of Justice in Washington, D.C.

Michael holds a master of laws in taxation degree (LL.M) from New York University, which is the highest ranked and most prestigious graduate tax program in the nation. His law degree (J.D.) is from the University of San Diego School of Law, where he graduated order of the coif, magna cum laude (Top 5%) and received the Ralph Gano Miller Tax Award for the highest overall grade point average in the area of taxation in his graduating class. As an undergrad, Michael obtained two bachelor degrees, one in accounting and one in business administration, from the University of San Diego where he graduated magna cum laude.
