Congratulations to our Partner SANDRA BROWN for being selected to be one of the 2021 Top Women Lawyers in California

We are pleased to announce that Sandra R. Brown has been named to the list of “Top Women Lawyers of 2021,” by the Daily Journal. The award honors excellent lawyering and leadership skills among women attorneys in California, seeking to recognize attorneys making an impact in the legal profession and cutting-edge legal work in their field.   Sandra, a former Acting United States Attorney and Chief of the Tax Division of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California, is a nationally promi­nent tax attorney, who focuses on complex and sophisticated civil tax controversies and litigation as well as representing individuals and entities in criminal tax investigations and prosecutions. She is a Fellow of the American College of Tax Counsel, Co-Chair of the American Bar Association’s Section of Taxation Sentencing Subcommittee, Civil & Criminal Tax Penalties (CCTP) Committee and Co-Chair of the NYU Institute on Federal Taxation, Tax Controversies Section. During her tenure with the government, Sandra was honored with the IRS Chief Counsel’s Mitchell Rogovin National Outstanding Support Award and the IRS Criminal Investigation Chief’s Award, respectively, the highest honors that can be conferred by those offices to a Department of Justice trial attorney.   “I’m extremely honored to be listed along with so many of my peers in California’s premier legal publication,” said Sandra. “I’m grateful for all of the dedicated attorneys I have had the pleasure to work alongside, and I appreciate that the many successes obtained on behalf of our clients in the recent year wouldn’t have been possible without their hard work and support.”   After decades of public service and well-deserved recognition, Sandra became a principal at Hochman Salkin Toscher Perez, P.C. in 2018. Since joining the firm, Sandra has played a lead role in obtaining favorable results for clients, including a declination in a criminal tax investigation involving over $20 million of unreported income, a declination in a high dollar tax evasion case, obtaining a non-prosecution in one of the largest international tax investigations in US history, obtaining non-criminal dispositions in matters involving both domestic and international gambling, and obtaining a multitude of resolutions of civil tax and international reporting investigations that concluded with no or de minimis penalties being imposed against the clients.   We are very proud of Sandra for her achievements and for being selected to be one of the Top Women Lawyers in California.
