- Successfully represented an accountant in the United States District Court in what has been heralded as perhaps the largest federal criminal tax fraud case and criminal tax fraud conspiracy in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Following four years of meticulous analysis not only of the government’s evidence but also of the client's compelling life circumstances that played a role in the offenses, coupled with relentless and strategic advocacy, the accountant was able to avoid losing his life and family to the prison system.
- As reflected on the full review on Avvo.com entitled "The First Step in the Right Direction," the client explains that NiaLena “knew the exact words to say, when to say them and how to say them. She tells you the honest truth. No spinning. She gave me the courage and hope to push forward in my case and my life. She became knowledgeable of every detail in my life. When NiaLena says something will be done, it gets done. She guided me through what I needed to do for the best possible outcome in my case.” The accountant continues to explain that “I went from facing possibly decades of incarceration to facing only months" and shares his opinion that "I was lucky.”
- Successfully represented the owner of multiple businesses that were under corporate tax audit by the IRS in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. After working very closely and strategically with a forensic accountant for 1 1/2 years, the IRS matters were successfully resolved and no criminal charges were filed.
