Get Aggressive Foreclosure and Tax Representation from NY & NJ Attorneys
Isn't it interesting how one letter can turn your life upside down in an instant?
You don't file or pay your taxes for a few years, when you suddenly receive some intimidating mail from the IRS one day. Are they really going to seize your bank account? Will you have to leave your family and go to jail? What does "Final Notice of Intent to Levy" even mean?
You've always paid your mortgage on time for over a decade, but the past few months were a little tough financially, so you missed a couple payments. You thought you had time and even applied for a modification, but a stern foreclosure notice from your bank that came the other day is saying otherwise. You've been trying to work things out with the bank, so why is this fair?
None of these letters is exactly as it seems. Contrary to their terrifying wording, you do have options and you can fix this.

If you have not received this letter yet, but you have years of unfiled tax returns or a change in financial circumstances (positive or negative) that may have an impact on past or future IRS debt, we can help you figure out what needs to happen next.
Audit Cases. If the IRS has contact you regarding an audit or to request more information about your tax return, we can make sure everything goes smoothly.
Sales Tax Cases. If the state thinks you underreported your sales taxes, this can be very serious because you're on the hook personally for the unpaid tax. Contact an experienced Bergen County tax attorney immediately
Trust Fund Recovery (Employment Tax) Cases. Huge amounts of money can be at stake in these cases if you are a business owner who failed to pay the employer portion of the Employment Tax.
Criminal Tax Cases. Most criminal tax cases involve a "willful evasion" of tax or lying to tax authorities. If you suspect that your case may have a criminal component, contact Fazzio Law right away. The IRS has about a 97 percent conviction rate on these cases, so it's important to have a strong defense in place.
Foreclosure Representation for New Jersey and New York Homeowners
You worked hard to buy your home and you should never give it up without a fight. Many of the clients of our New Jersey foreclosure attorneys have tried to work things out to come into good standing on their mortgage, but were misled and mistreated by the bank. Unfortunately, this is a story we hear all too often: you fell behind on payments briefly, tried to get on track, and were told to apply for modifications. You spent months sending in packages that the bank never reviewed. Now you find, unexpectedly, that a court action is underway to take away your home.
We know that foreclosure is a very personal matter; we’ve even dealt with it in our own lives as well. For one of our attorneys, it hit a little too close to home when his dad was facing foreclosure. He took his father on as his very first foreclosure client and ultimately saved his house. We do not believe in a "no win" case; whatever happens, we will find an option you can live with. This may mean:
Modifying your loan or paying down the arrears
Getting you into a listing agreement to sell your property, with the bank's approval
Accepting that you will lose your house, but getting favorable terms and "cash for keys" deals and sufficient time to look for a new home
Every case is different and we tailor our approach to your goals rather than employing a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all solution to what is actually a complex problem.
New Jersey and New York Tax and Foreclosure Lawyers Who Specialize in the "Impossible"
At Fazzio Law, we like to say that we "specialize in the impossible" because when we take on a case, we dedicate ourselves to it completely. We are fighters, not just attorneys, and we fight for your rights and will put our careers on the line to make sure the scales are balanced and truth sees the light of day. This is your life we're talking about, after all.
What makes our law office tick? We think you'll find Fazzio Law is not your average law firm. We are here to serve you and to help you get your life back on track.
Fazzio Law Offices is a different kind of law firm. We believe that everyone deserves as many second chances as they need and that we all need a helping hand through the storms of life. We believe in getting results, and while no lawyer can guarantee victory, we like to say that we “specialize in the impossible.” The most rewarding experience the members of a law firm can have is to take on a challenging case, meeting a client at their worst possible moment, give them hope, pull them from the wreckage, advocate for their cause, achieve victory and see them through to better days.
Everyone on our team has a combination of advanced financial training combined with litigation and advocacy skills. There are accountants and foreclosure/tax/bankruptcy attorneys out there who know their craft, but they are merely technicians. At Fazzio Law Offices, we are advocates in everything that we do. We will do the technical work as well as anyone, but the value we bring to the table is our ability to go after the results that are important to you with passion, diplomacy and aplomb.
At Fazzio Law Offices, we want to be your lawyers and advocates for life. We specialize in foreclosure litigation, tax controversy work, and entertainment law. John Fazzio is also a trial lawyer who jumps at the chance to take almost any case to trial, whatever the area of law. Although we specialize in those things we do best, Fazzio Law Offices has expertise with almost every legal issue that an individual or small business can face. While we meet most of our clients through one of our specialty focuses, we try to grow with our clients and become a one stop shop for all of their legal needs.
If you become our client, we expect you to be part of the solution. We give homework! We expect you to meet deadlines to get us necessary documents and information. As one commentator said, Winning is a Team Sport. We expect you to be engaged and involved in your case and to participate in the process. The more involved you are, the more successful we can be. But, we don’t stop there. We also have an eye toward your long-term success.
We have tax/foreclosure clients that come to us owing hundreds of thousands of dollars. After settling their tax/foreclosure woes, we help them get their financial house back in order, clean-up their bookkeeping, meet their tax compliance obligations, institute financial controls, and ultimately work to help them build banking relationships, establish credit lines, apply for revolving lines of credit, access private or public capital, establish sound employment backstops, and the list goes on. Some clients just need a quick fix and they are on their way, but we are open to building a lawyer-client relationship that will last a lifetime, if not for generations to come.
At Fazzio Law we represent individuals, not just corporate entities. We pride ourselves on knowing our clients, gaining their trust, and being a part of their lives. We give counsel, not just legal advice. We strive to get results, instead of just going through the motions. We learn about your business endeavors and try to act as a resource to connect you with our extended network of professionals. We take an interest in who you are and what you do. We did not become professionals to sit in an ivory tower and pontificate from afar. We want to get our hands dirty. We want to get to know other people in the community and work with them through challenging situations, and to expand our network of contacts. Most of our clients come to us through referrals and we depend on our clients to know, like and trust us, and to recommend us and help us to grow.
At Fazzio Law Offices, we are not shy about expressing our Christian beliefs. We believe that great things can be accomplished through good sound legal work. However, there are times where only grace and divine blessing can see us through the storms and trials of life. These blessings can be as simple as getting the sympathetic ear of the right judge or drawing an adversary with the acumen and spirit to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. We have seen it time and time again where a faithful client, usually humble and gracious and trusting, walks out of Court with a surprising victory, against truly long odds, and we can only attribute those victories to God. These are the pieces of the puzzle that are outside the province of sound legal work, and it is not unusual for John Fazzio to ask a client before walking into Court, “How are you with God? Have you prayed recently? Now, would be a good time for a prayer.”
