So, my fee to represent him throughout the process: $1500.00.
He also spoke to Alvin Brown and Associates in the D.C. area. Mr. Brown who is an attorney quoted him a $4000 plus fee. Mr. Brown has been in the business a long time and seems to be a reputable firm.
Freedom Tax Relief in California also quoted a fee just a bit over $4000.00. Freedom Tax seems to be a decent company ALBEIT you do have to deal largely with "salespeople" on the front lines.
I wanted to illustrate the disparity of fees also for the slightly humourous reason that my potential client was concerned about my company Washington Tax Services...because we charged so little?!
And I told him very succinctly...no, nothing wrong with us.
