Mr. Mullin said the jury’s speedy verdict served justice in this two-week trial which had commenced on April 30, 2012. “The jury’s resounding not guilty verdict on each and every count should send a loud and clear message to the IRS, which prosecuted these charges, that there must be greater selectivity before utilizing its vast powers to pursue American taxpayers.” According to the IRS 2012 current fiscal year statistics, more than four out of every five IRS prosecutions result in conviction.
In 2007, Mr. Mullin secured a federal jury acquittal on all ten counts brought by the DEA’s Diversion Unit against a physician, marking its first full major reported defeat. In 2011, Mr. Mullin also secured a full dismissal of a six-count federal indictment against a defense contractor charged with procurement fraud as a separate corporate plea was entered based solely upon key employee misconduct.
With offices in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Fort Lee, New Jersey, Mr. Mullin concentrates in complex tax defense and federal criminal defense matters. He has argued before the United States Supreme Court in a major federal criminal sentencing matter, is the recipient of numerous professional accolades and is admitted to practice in numerous federal district and circuit courts across the country.
