Summary

As a trial attorney with 40 years of experience, John Ellsworth, founder of Ellsworth Law Group, has dedicated his firm to serving the public good by preventing the IRS from running over people, sometimes by good old fashioned accountability in court. Mr. Ellsworth knows from experience that imposing tax rules against IRS agents improves society by making it difficult for the IRS to violate the rules that are meant to protect us. Those Tax Court case results constitute consequences for unreasonable and sometimes flagrant conduct.

John graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and went on to earn a Juris Doctor with advanced study in Taxation.

With over 35 years practical experience in complex forensic accounting, John has handled 1000s of personal, business and corporate audits, negotiated many successful offers in compromise and has had experience in international taxation including offshore entities and controlled foreign corporations.

John Ellsworth is licensed to practice law in several states and before the U.S. Court of Appeals as well as the United States Tax Court. He is a member of the State Bars of several states, the American Bar Association, and the American Association for Justice (AAJ), formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA). John serves as a Military attorney and assists U.S. service members and their families in need of legal assistance.
