Certified Taxation Law Specialist
The State Bar of California only allows members who have been properly certified by the Board of Legal Specialization, or other State Bar accredited entity, to refer to themselves as certified specialists. As of June 2019, there are only 311 Certified Taxation Law Specialists recognized by the State Bar of California out of 190,659 active attorneys in California. That means fewer than 0.2% of attorneys licensed to practice in California are Certified Taxation Law Specialists.
Attorneys who are certified as tax specialists have taken and passed a bar exam in taxation, demonstrated at least 5 years of high-level experience in tax, fulfilled ongoing education requirements, and been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with their work.
The Certified Taxation Law Specialist examination covers various areas of the tax law including professional responsibility, tax litigation and procedure, income taxation of individuals, corporations, partnerships, and other pass-through entities, real estate taxation, and estate and gift taxation. Having been certified as a Taxation Law Specialist, Mr. Pedram Ben-Cohen has established his knowledge and proficiency in the aforementioned areas of the tax law to the satisfaction of the State Bar of California.
While the State Bar of California does not offer certification in any subspecialties of the tax law, as shown by our Representative Engagements, the Ben-Cohen Law Firm is dedicated to assisting clients with civil and criminal tax controversy matters against the Internal Revenue Service, Department of Justice, Franchise Tax Board, and other taxing authorities.
