Sirote & Permutt Hires Tax Attorney in Huntsville Office
Sirote & Permutt, P.C. has added Michelle Abroms Levin to the firm’s tax practice in its Huntsville office. Levin joins the firm’s Tax Controversy & Litigation practice group, which is focused on tax controversies and tax litigation in federal and state courts and before the IRS and state tax authorities.
“Michelle’s litigation experience and knowledge of tax law make her a tremendous resource for our clients,” says John Baggette, Sirote’s managing partner of the Huntsville office. “She is an outstanding addition to our firm and to the practice group.”
Levin spent the past two and a half years working with the Department of Justice Tax Division where she successfully resolved more than a dozen cases for the division. Before joining the Department of Justice, Levin represented taxpayers in private practice in Washington, D.C. for five years. She has experience handling tax cases in federal district and bankruptcy courts and in the U. S. Tax Court.
“Michelle is a key addition to our Tax Controversy & Litigation practice group, which is one of the most active tax controversy teams in the Southeast,” explains David Wooldridge, who chairs the practice group. “Both the IRS and the Department of Revenue have been aggressive in recent years in pursuit of tax revenue. Our case load has burgeoned, particularly our Tax Court practice. Michelle’s years of experience will be a great asset in the defense of our clients.”
Levin is a graduate of Washington University with an undergraduate degree in accounting, finance and international business and the University of Texas School of Law. She is originally from Birmingham, Ala.
