Derek is one of the best lawyers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. My bank account was being levied and I had a tax debt going going back to 1999 and 2000 in excess of 170K and was in desperate need of help. I emailed Derek files pertinent to my case and when I arrived at the initial consultation (even before I had agreed to his services) he had reviewed those files and had came up with strategies on how to handle the situation. He is a former IRS trial attorney and has total knowledge

I was facing an extreme tax issue in federal tax court. Mr. Kaczmarek offered to represent me. He offered professional, experienced, quality, assistance to me and my husband. It focused on his amazing ability to understand tax law and apply his knowledge to resolve the issues. He was able to negotiate with the opposing counsel and avoid the trial. His awesome personality was an unbelievable plus. I highly recommend him to anyone facing a tax issue, don't go it alone. Hire his amazing man!!!!
