Jeffry J. Erney

Jeff Erney focuses his practice on tax litigation and dispute resolution. When representing clients faced with complex issues, Jeff draws on years of experience as a senior tax attorney for the Office of Chief Counsel with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), as well as his background as a certified public accountant (CPA), to most effectively provide counsel. Jeff's background, both in private practice and as a governmental attorney, provides him with the tools to assess the strengths and risks of each issue, negotiate favorable settlements with the government and, if necessary, litigate the matter before the appropriate court. Jeff easily adapts to the venue in which he finds himself practicing, whether it is in front of the IRS or in trial, and does not lose focus of his clients' objectives throughout the representation process.

Jeff is listed in The Best Lawyers in America and has been a frequent speaker before the Tax Executive Institute, the American Bar Association's Tax Section and the Cleveland Tax Institute.
