About Us

- Helping taxpayers who are being hunted by the IRS get out of trouble

- Defending and asserting the rights of people and businesses in a variety of situations


Allan R. Pearlman brings to bear 16 years of experience that spans working for both federal and state court judges and working in private practice litigating to protect and assert the rights people and businesses to now help taxpayers who have been targeted and are hunted by the IRS.

He is a former staff attorney for the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and former Senior Court Attorney for the New York State Supreme Court.

In addition to his tax practice, he writes and argues civil and criminal appeals and major motions at the trial level.
He also handles more general trial-level civil litigation. His practice encompasses working as a “lawyer’s lawyer” on behalf of other attorneys and for the general public as well.

He has successfully argued or briefed or both a number of cases which have resulted in published decisions, including: Wong v. Tang, 2 A.D.3d 840, 769 N.Y.S.2d 381 (2d Dept 2003); Aon Corporation Accidental Death and Dismemberment Plan v. Hohlweck, 223 F. Supp. 2d 510 (S.D.N.Y. 2002); Sadkin v. Raskin & Rappoport, P.C., 271 A.D.2d 272, 707 N.Y.S.2d 400 (1st Dept 2000) (for co-defendant McGrath).

In addition, he litigated a First Amendment free speech and due process of law issue in a criminal case. He wrote the argument that succeeded in persuading a federal judge to strike down a special condition of probation as being an unconstitutional infringement of the First Amendment and a violation of due process of law. United States v. Sagginario, E.D.N.Y. 00 CR 806 [no published decision]. Read more about it in "Protecting our constitutional rights," at In the News page of this web site.
