He has represented several hundred taxpayers, including low-income individuals in pro bono matters, high net-worth individuals, partnerships, and trusts and estates. Cullinan has also represented large corporations in IRS audits, administrative appeals and litigation, and on a wide variety of tax issues often with significant amounts at issue.
