Benefits of a Dual-Certified Professional
Hiring a dual-certified professional who is both a lawyer and CPA provides at least one distinct advantage over hiring a typical CPA, confidentiality.
That’s right, a lawyer has the advantage of attorney-client privilege and is not compelled to share information with the IRS and/or the court system. Any information that you provide to your attorney is protected by client-attorney privilege, meaning they cannot be forced to testify against you.
Conversely, a CPA who does not have a license to practice law can be compelled to testify against you in front of the IRS and/or the court system.
