Tax attorney Andrew L. Jones graduated in 2009 with a J.D. and a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Taxation from Loyola Law School and was licensed that same year to practice law in California. Andrew limits his practice to international tax controversy, compliance, and planning, focusing in particular on IRS voluntary disclosure programs for resolving unreported and/or un-taxed foreign accounts (including Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program, Streamlined Domestic Offshore Procedures, Delinquent FBAR Procedures and Delinquent International Information Return Submission Procedures). As a result, Andrew solely accepts clients with cross-border/international tax issues.
Andrew has guided dozens and dozens of clients through the collective disclosure of over $27 million in previously-unreported foreign assets; the median disclosure was $360,000 (statistics as of 1/29/2015).
Andrew serves his tax clients from six offices located throughout the state: San Francisco, Palo Alto, Walnut Creek, Los Angeles, Irvine, and San Diego, and provides accounting services to his clients through international tax-focused teams in Los Angeles, California and the states of Washington and Utah.
Andrew earned his B.A. in Political Science from UCLA in 2003 (with a minor in Public Policy), and in 2009, earned his law degree from Loyola Law School (Los Angeles) and later that year, graduated a semester early – and with distinction – from Loyola’s Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Taxation program.
His career focus on taxation began with his 2007 summer internship in the Washington, D.C. chambers of United States Tax Court Judge Mark V. Holmes. Upon his return for his second year at Loyola Law, Andrew concentrated his academic efforts in the tax field, ultimately completing 37 units of tax course work.
Andrew is a long-time board member of charitable organizations with deep roots at UCLA and UC Berkeley. He maintains an active public speaking and writing schedule, and also represents clients pro bono in Tax Court proceedings through the San Francisco Bar Association’s Volunteer Legal Services Program (VLSP).
