All who knew Ken Gordon – family, colleagues, friends, clients – were saddened when he passed away in January 2013. Mr. Gordon served as a senior trial attorney for District Counsel at the Internal Revenue Service for seven and one-half years. In that position, he was responsible for the resolution and/or trial of numerous and complex litigation matters, domestic and international.

He specialized in tax controversy matters, civil and criminal, at the administrative and trial levels of the Federal, State and local governments. In that capacity he served as special tax litigation counsel for the leading Bankruptcy Trustee in Los Angeles County.
In one case, the Internal Revenue Service sought over $9 million, in tax and fraud penalties, from a debtor previously convicted under state law. After a complex trial and appeals to the Federal District Court and Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the claim of the IRS was defeated, as well as the related California tax claim. In addition, Mr. Gordon had been on the faculty of the Graduate Tax Program at Golden State University, been a frequent lecturer before professional tax groups and authored numerous published tax articles.
