Attorneys Added to Tax Controversy & Litigation Practice in Atlanta

On June 25, 2024, Law360 published an article highlighting the addition of Atlanta-based Special Counsel Alan Shapiro and Associates Joseph O’Brien and Jonathan Willamson to the firm’s Tax Controversy & Litigation practice group.

Shapiro worked as a senior trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice Tax Division for more than 30 years prior to joining the firm. His impressive experience with litigating cases in federal court and bankruptcy courts made him a great fit for the firm. O’Brien also has experience with the U.S. Department of Justice, Tax Division, where he litigated complex refund suits and collection actions.

“Throughout my career, I have known the Chamberlain Hrdlicka law firm to have hi-caliber attorneys and to adhere to the ethical standards of the profession," Shapiro said. "I knew that they have a wide variety of clients and interesting cases. A friend and mentor, Phil Karter, is a partner in the firm, and I trust his advice."

"My government experience will assist clients in navigating the intricate processes of all aspects of tax controversy from audit, to appeals, to litigation: whether before the U.S. Tax Court or U.S. District Courts," said O'Brien.

Williamson made the move from law clerk at Chamberlain to now becoming an associate, where his work focuses on counseling taxpayers on examination, appeals and litigation. Williamson said to Law360, "However, the firm culture overall is incredibly supportive, with the other associates and shareholders sharing their wisdom and support and our integrated tax controversy practice group supporting the development of all of our attorneys."
