Washington DC Criminal Tax Lawyer

First-Class Representation in Criminal Tax Cases


The attorneys at Thorn Law Group have decades of experience successfully resolving criminal tax matters. We represent individual taxpayers, professionals, corporations, banks, trusts and other types of organizations in the United States and around the world facing investigations or indictments for criminal tax violations. Our background as former IRS tax attorneys gives us a unique insight into how the U.S. government handles these types of cases.

The IRS has established a special unit dedicated to investigating potential criminal violations of the Internal Revenue Code and related financial crimes including money laundering, wire fraud, currency crimes, antitrust violations and Bank Secrecy Act violations. This unit, the IRS Criminal Investigation Division (CI), is composed of special agents who are expertly trained forensic financial investigators. These agents aggressively conduct exhaustive, in-depth investigations into individuals and businesses to uncover tax and financial crimes, including:

  • General Tax Fraud
  • Return Preparer Fraud
  • Questionable Refunds
  • Abusive use Trusts
  • Frivolous Filer/Non-Filer
  • Employment Tax Fraud
  • Voluntary Disclosures
  • Undisclosed Offshore Accounts
  • Excise Tax Fraud

The CI’s conviction rate is one of the highest in federal law enforcement. When a conviction occurs, the government can impose substantial prison sentences and require the payment of fines, civil penalties and interest in addition to any back taxes owed.

Early Intervention is Key to a Successful Outcome

At Thorn Law Group, we recognize the importance of early intervention in criminal tax matters. For some taxpayers, an IRS civil tax audit can turn into a criminal investigation. Other taxpayers do not suspect they are being investigated until they are contacted by the IRS Special Agent. When a client becomes the target of an IRS investigation, a Washington DC criminal tax lawyer at our firm will carefully guide the client through each step of the process. We help our clients cooperate with investigators to the extent required by law, while fully asserting all available defenses, including the constitutional privilege against self-incrimination.

Once criminal tax charges are filed, our attorneys focus on developing the best tactics and strategies to successfully defend our clients. Each criminal tax lawyer at our Washington DC firm knows that an effective defense requires early action, expert negotiation skills and the ability to present a compelling case to the jury at trial.

The attorneys at our firm have extensive experience with Deferred Prosecution Agreements
