U.S. v. Terry Elliott

Mr. Terry Elliot and Attorney David M. Garvin

     In United States v. Elliott the Government. IRS  charged the taxpayer with income tax evasion. The Government executed a search warrant and found a large quantity of currency at the Elliott home. The amount of taxable income reflected on the tax returns was a fraction of the amount discovered.

     At trial the United States produced cooperating witnesses who were real estate brokers that had purchased real estate on behalf of Mr. Elliott. The brokers testified that the land was purchased with currency and they had deposited the funds into the bank through numerous transaction of $9,000 each.

     After an extensive trial in federal court the jury found Mr. Elliott NOT GUILTY on all counts.


Client's Comments
Dear Mr. Garvin:

     I am writing this letter to convey my sincere appreciation for the legal representation that you have provided on my behalf.  When I  was first notified that I was under investigation by the United States (IRS) for alleged income tax violations I was in a state of disbelief. I was warned that the IRS almost never loses a criminal case. I decided that my only chance to prevail and clear my name was to hire the very best attorney possible.  I knew that the IRS had more resources than I could ever have.

     I met with several high profile attorneys.  I met with the biggest names in the legal field. When I met with them I ask several questions. I asked each one if he was in my position who would they hire to represent them or who would they want to team up with if they were on a legal team. The name that was mentioned over and over again was David M. Garvin. I decided to call Mr. Garvin for an appointment but I was told that he was in trial. I decided to go down and watch the trial myself. He was in a criminal tax trial and what I observed was remarkable. His client was found NOT GUILTY.  I told my wife that I had found my attorney.

     We went to trial and David was my attorney. Some of the government's witnesses had cut deals to testify against me. When David was finished with their cross-examination the jury knew I was innocent. I won my case. But what has impressed me the most about my experience was the way I was treated by everyone at the Law Offices of David M. Garvin. I was not treated like a number. I was treated like a friend.

Best regards,

Terry Elliott, Sr.
