Welcome to our tax and fraud blog. My name is Brian Mahany and I am the author of most of the posts you will find here.
There is so much misinformation on the Internet and websites that give you just enough information to tease you but never quite give the answers you need. Although we can’t dispense legal advice by a blog -everyone’s situation is unique – we do try to provide valuable information and knowledge to all our readers. We are a bit different in that we value well educated, knowledgable clients.
Our blog is divided into sections. We write so frequently that many readers find it easier to subscribe to our RSS feed or to periodically visit and use the topic feature on the top right corner. That allows people interested in foreclosure fraud to avoid stories on taxes and vice versa. We also have a pretty cool search feature. Whether you are interested in stories on FATCA or FINRA arbitrations, just type in a key word and our search engine will instantly filter the best stories for you.
This blog is now 3 year old, although I have been a lawyer for 29 years. About half my experience comes from the public sector where I held many positions including a felony prosecutor, assistant attorney general for tax cases and Maine’s state revenue commissioner. I also had some real fun and excitement during my public service years including a few years as a K-9 handler / deputy sheriff in the northern Maine woods. Not everyone can live their dreams but I have lived most of mine. My current passion is writing Due Diligence. Believe it or not, we get 2 to 8 calls per day from readers. That is humbling and keeps me going.
Our small boutique firm has been privileged to have awesome clients from around the country and the world. We don’t do many things but the things we do – fraud and tax – we try to be the best in the business. Period.
Along the way we have picked up some recognition and accolades. The place for that is our website, www.mahanyertl.com. This blog is where we try and provide you our readers with useful knowledge and commentary you won’t find anywhere else.
If you need a lawyer and the case involves tax or fraud (stock fraud, predatory foreclosures, legal malpractice, offshore tax reporting, tax controversies) call us. My law partner Christopher also handles white collar and felony criminal cases.
What makes us different from other lawyers? We take a genuine interest in what we do and truly enjoy our clients and our cases. Practicing law is a job for many people. For us, it is an adventure. We love what we do and look forward to coming to work everyday. We certainly do not take every case but give the cases we take 100% of our efforts.
