While I realize there is no guarantee when it comes to legal issues, I really did not feel that Mouris Behboud and his team did their best work to help me resolve my case. While they were pitching themselves to me, they said they had strong connections with the IRS and would likely get a reduced penalty. My son lives in LA and I asked him to meet with them in person, as well, and they mentioned a few strategies (for example, a character interview with the IRS agent to get a sense that there was no criminal intent in my situation) that were never discussed or referred to ever again. Over the course of almost two years, he waited for the agent to be randomly assigned, spoke to them a handful of times, and asked me to write a lot of the correspondences with the IRS.
Along the lengthy process, the IRS actually changed their rules and offered a much-reduced penalty (which I was led to believe I would be an excellent candidate for) but it never happened. I was consistently told it was "going well" and was shocked when I was informed that after all that, I would be paying the maximum penalty – the same as if I had never engaged a lawyer in the first place. My ex-husband engaged a much less expensive legal option and, in the end, we ended up with the exact same penalties. I have been involved in successful businesses for 45 years and have dealt with my share of lawyers – and have never written a negative review before. But I felt I wanted other potential clients to be aware of my situation. I see almost exclusively positive reviews on their websites – I'm hoping this review is allowed to stay up, in addition.
