He regularly represents businesses, individuals and other entities in the defense of IRS, FBI, Homeland Security, state police and other law enforcement agency investigations.
Nemeth has extensive experience in tax law with a focus on all aspects of related civil and criminal law, as well as complex financial investigative and litigation matters.

Prior to entering private practice, Nemeth served as a senior trial lawyer for the IRS Chief Counsel and as a Special Assistant United States Attorney.
