Our Firm is guided by one principle:
place the client’s interests above all else.

NARDIELLO LAW FIRM, PLC is a leading tax law firm that specializes in civil and criminal tax controversy and litigation matters involving federal and state taxing authorities. The Firm provides representation on behalf of those taxpayers that become embroiled in a dispute with the IRS, or another taxing authority such as the California Franchise Tax Board, the State Board of Equalization, or the Employment Development Department. In representing its clients, the Firm is guided by one principle: place the client’s interests above all else. Prioritizing the client’s interests while providing sophisticated, responsive, and efficient representation sets the Firm apart from its competition.

Our core values.

Clients hire the Firm because of the distinct quality of the representation that it provides. That quality permeates the Firm’s practice, and is based on the following core values:

Commitment

Commitment to prioritizing the client’s interests above all else so that the client understands that it has the Firm’s loyalty and assurance that the matter will be handled properly

Sophistication

Sophistication in resolving or litigating matters that rely on strategic thinking to bring about a favorable outcome

Responsiveness

Responsiveness to clients through constant communication so that concerns can be immediately addressed

Efficiency

Efficiency in representing client interests which allows matters to be addressed in a timely manner that avoids unnecessary use of time and resources

The Firm provides the client with direct, ongoing contact with the experienced attorney hired by the client.

Another benefit of hiring the Firm is that Mr. Nardiello will be personally involved and assume primary responsibility for the matter. The Firm will not assign an associate to take the day-to-day lead on the matter such that the client is left to question the level of matter-related knowledge and involvement of the more senior attorney in charge of the representation. The Firm provides the client with direct, ongoing contact with the experienced attorney hired by the client.

A taxpayer’s first and only instinct should be to seek out competent, qualified legal counsel.

Understanding “why” a business or individual has become embroiled in a tax controversy matter is important, but not nearly as important as deciding how to respond. A taxpayer’s first and only instinct should be to seek out competent, qualified legal counsel. Attempting to act as one’s own legal adviser is unwise; the pitfalls are too great to proceed without representation.

Hiring the Firm to intercede between you and the taxing authority allows you to put aside the day-to-day stress that is involved in a tax controversy matter and return to focusing on productive matters such as your business, your employment and/or your family.
