Max was really helpful in getting all of my crypto tax data completed and reconciled so I could move forward with filing my taxes. This was not an easy task due to some real complications that required more than might be typical. I was particularly grateful for how thorough and timely he was in getting this done. He certainly made my life easier.

I worked with John Shaw to file my crypto taxes. I needed someone detail-oriented to help me navigate the craziness of 2021 (airdropds, staking, NFTs, etc) and he nailed it. We hopped on 2 different Zoom calls to nail down the details. Much appreciated.

Gordon Law Group was referred to us by a friend. I worked with Michael Brandwein on an IRS related case for a family member, who does not speak much English, after they asked me to act as a translator. Michael was prompt to answer any questions, thoroughly updated us throughout the entire process, and most importantly for us was patient with the back and forth translating. He was professional, knowledgeable and provided a successful outcome. My family member was more than grateful for the outcome of his case thanks to Michael. I would absolutely recommend Michael and Gordon Law Group’s services.

Found out about Gordon Law Group through a friend and worked with attorney Justin McCormick, to file my taxes for my somewhat complex cryptocurrency portfolio. Justin was knowledgeable and promptly answered all my questions when I needed clarification. He also completed my report in a reasonable amount of time. The process was simple, easy, and to the point. Thanks to Justin, I will continue to be a client of Gordon Law Group in the future.

I had a somewhat complicated crypto situation this year, but GLG helped me navigate it. I worked with Justin McCormick, who was both knowledgeable and efficient in creating my final report.

If I could rate GLG 6 stars, I would. I worked with Justin McCormick and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was reliable, efficient and very informative (coming from a first time filer that just bombarded him with questions day and night). Huge thanks to him and GLG for making this process as seamless and pleasant as possible.

Max Markoff has been doing my crypto taxes for the last 2 years. He is detail oriented and his follow up is good. I would definitely recommend him and Gordon Law.

Working with Andrew has been easy, he always has an answer to my questions. I was concerned about where I had been investing into crypto, so he explained the legal and tax implications of investing in different kinds of crypto exchanges, now I know how to report and understand my risk exposure. If you are uncertain about your crypto tax situation, give him a call. He should know how to help you, I don't know anyone as knowledgeable in the space. He has also answered my other legal questions in the past - so resourceful!

Our History

A New Tax Solution

Andrew Gordon founded Gordon Law Group in 2012, combining his accounting savvy with the exciting challenges of legal practice. 

Using his experience as a law clerk at the IRS Office of Chief Counsel and working at the Chicago-Kent College of Law’s Tax Clinic for low-income taxpayers, he began by focusing on tax resolutions, including audit defense and tax debt reconciliation.

2012

Learning from the Best

As Andrew’s practice grew and clients began to approach him with problems outside the realm of tax law, he secured respected legal professionals to assist with various cases. In doing so, he gained invaluable experience and training from some of the top attorneys in internet marketing, corporate law, startups, and white collar crime defense.

Taking On the FTC

In 2013, Gordon Law Group took on numerous FTC defense cases on behalf of affiliate marketers, successfully negotiating settlements for a fraction of the initial penalties.

Over the years, the firm has become known as an aggressive opponent against the FTC.

2013

Cryptocurrency Tax Practice

In 2014, our first cryptocurrency client approached Gordon Law Group for help; no one in the accounting world knew how to handle his virtual investments.

Always up for a challenge, our attorneys learned how to properly report cryptocurrency taxes and used their extensive knowledge of tax law to accurately predict how the IRS would treat crypto. 

Since then, Gordon Law Group has become an industry leader in the field of cryptocurrency tax law, a realm that is little understood even amongst tax attorneys and CPAs.

We’ve now helped hundreds of cryptocurrency traders understand their tax obligations, correctly report their crypto for prior years, and minimize tax debts resulting from unreported crypto.

2014

At Home in Chicagoland

To meet the needs of a growing team, the Gordon Law Group headquarters moved from Lake Zurich, Illinois to our current office in Northfield.

FTC Victory

In 2017, Gordon Law Group successfully reversed an FTC asset freeze and receivership in court (a nearly unheard of resolution) and countersued the FTC for defamation against our client.

2017

Today

Our primary focus remains solving tax problems for our clients. Our attorneys are extremely knowledgeable and experienced in issues such as audit defense, tax debt, FBARs and foreign disclosures, tax fraud defense, and sales and use taxes for ecommerce businesses.

We also help businesses with a wide range of legal matters ranging from business formation to contract disputes, serving as a one-stop shop for legal and tax needs.

Our mission has never wavered: Whether you’re fighting an uphill tax battle, clashing with the FTC, or looking to grow and protect your business, we help you conquer.
