What is a Tax Lawyer?
Adam L Weitzel, J.D., LL.M.
After graduating from law school, Adam Weitzel, a Colorado Springs tax attorney, completed an advanced law degree (LL.M.) in tax law from Georgetown University. Because of the expense and effort it requires to obtain an LL.M., it’s not common to find them outside of the bigger law firms.
After graduation, his initial work focused on sophisticated tax matters with large law firms. Adam continues that same sophisticated tax work with the Business Law Group.
Brad S. Monson, J.D., M.A. (Accountancy)
In addition to his law degree, Brad Monson, a Colorado Springs tax attorney, earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in accounting from the Marriott School of Management at Brigham Young University, one of the top accounting programs in the country. After graduation, Brad practiced as a senior tax associate in the Denver office of a “Big Four” accounting firm, where he advised clients on corporate tax matters.
Brad S. Monson, a Colorado Springs tax attorney, is an experienced and highly educated tax professional, capable of providing the highest level of tax and business law advice, combined with common sense and practical insight.
What is an LL.M.?
LL.M. is an abbreviation of the Latin, Legum Magister, which means Master of Laws.
The tax world is complicated, and attorneys practicing in areas involving tax laws often seek additional educational training to prepare for this field. That is where the LL.M. in taxation comes into play. Generally, it is a one-year post-graduate program offered through law school. It is, in essence, a law degree you earn after earning a regular law degree. It is similar to a doctor pursuing a special residency, after completing medical school. Georgetown’s LL.M. program is very competitive and includes expert instruction from practicing professionals at the highest level, government attorneys, and legal counsel for governmental agencies and regulatory bodies.
To sum it up, Mr. Weitzel said, “It was the hardest year of my life.”
