Mr. Brantley has more than twenty years of experience as a trial lawyer, having successfully litigated in Tax Court and in state trial and appellate courts in Texas. Licensed to practice by all courts in Texas and Arkansas, Mr. Brantley's current litigation practice focuses on federal tax controversies, mostly in the Tax Court.
Federal tax disputes involve complex legal, procedural and enforcement issues, generating fear and anxiety for taxpayers when they are notified of an audit, face collection of delinquent taxes or find themselves against the IRS in court. With effective representation, many federal tax controversies can be resolved during the audit with the IRS Examination Function or settled after the examination with the IRS Appeals Function. Mr. Brantley believes that taxpayers are best served when the IRS examining agents, appeals officers, and attorneys know that the taxpayer's representative has proven ability to litigate a case if necessary. Mr. Brantley has experience representing both taxpayers and the IRS in Tax Court. This experience translates into positive outcomes for clients, often without the necessity of a costly trial.
