I was looking for a lawyer knowledgeable in foreign bank accounts, specifically OVPD voluntary disclosures; I chose Joseph Viola over two other attorneys in California and D.C. In contrast to them he was listed in the Martindale-Hubble Law Directory and he was very generous with his time in our first telephone conversation. Most importantly, he was transparent with his explanations.
When IRS forms and questions became too complicated and worrisome, Viola stepped in and did the actual figuring and work for me. He was very well informed about the latest changes in regulations and saved me a lot of money. I could completely rely on his competence and sensitivity when dealing with the IRS. He took a huge load off my shoulder.
Throughout our cooperation Viola was discrete, trustworthy and personable, and sometimes very funny which helped in the dismal tax business. I appreciated him and would always recommend him.
