Our defense lawyers begin protecting your rights immediately.

A portion of our practice is dedicated to helping clients who run into issues with offshore bank assets. The federal government devotes significant resources to prosecuting anyone who fails to report offshore income. Even if a person did not know that the foreign income had to be reported to the IRS, they may still be arrested and prosecuted if the government does not believe that the person did not know the account and income had to be disclosed.
If convicted, you could face a prison sentence of up to 10 years and fines reaching six figures. Be proactive and protect your rights by speaking with an experienced lawyer at The Law Offices of Mark L. Horwitz today. We have helped many people in your situation fight back against offshore banking-related criminal charges for unreported income, and we know what it takes to mount a successful defense.
The U.S. government offers incentives to self-report disclosure offenses through the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program. This could be an excellent option for you if you want to avoid criminal prosecution and significantly reduce your potential penalties.
