With over 30 years of experience, Jonathan Altman has developed an efficient and effective approach to helping his clients solve their problems. As a seasoned trial lawyer, with a wide range of experience both in state and federal courts, Mr. Altman’s main objective is to provide immediate relief for the client through negotiation and then litigation, if necessary. His style of assertive advocacy and genuine, personal, hands-on interaction with his clients and adversaries has earned him the respect and admiration of his peers and clients. Mr. Altman continues to assist clients throughout the United States who are dealing with assorted criminal tax issues including willful failure to file, tax evasion, conspiracy to defraud, corruptly endeavoring to obstruct or to impede due administration of internal revenue laws, intervening in IRS criminal investigations, as well as preparing and resolving Grand Jury inquiries.
Prior to embarking in his private practice, Mr. Altman gained a wide variety of experience in both corporate and private firms. He worked for several years as an Assistant District Attorney, trying misdemeanor and felony cases. As Senior Trial Counsel for Consolidated Rail Corporation, he was responsible for handling all aspects of personal injury litigation. Later in his career he focused on professional liability matters including class actions, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and Fair Credit Reporting Act violations, attorney malpractice, medical malpractice, accountant malpractice, realtor malpractice, insurance agent malpractice, title insurance company malpractice, personal injury litigation, motor vehicle, premises and product liability.
  Currently, Mr. Altman is primarily interested in working for both individuals and businesses who have tax problems, who are under criminal scrutiny of the IRS or Pennsylvania Department of Revenue, who may be subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury, who have tax liens against their property or who have in fact been indicted or criminally charged for violations of the Internal Revenue Code and for federal criminal offenses.
