Firm Profile

RJS LAW, Southern California’s largest tax law firm, specializes in all areas of civil tax controversy and criminal tax defense. Founded by CEO and principal attorney Ronson J. Shamoun in 2003, we began with the desire to lend a helping hand to our community and solve their problems with integrity and honesty. RJS LAW has made it a priority to keep the sterling reputation we have gained with both the courts and other attorneys over the years. Our mission at RJS LAW is to act as steadfast advocates on behalf of our clients, treating them with compassion while solving their tax problems and achieving the best possible results. We believe we are a unique law firm because of our commitment to excellence, personalized customer service, and reasonable rates. Our clients become family, and as such we vigorously protect and fiercely fight for them in front of the Internal Revenue Service, Franchise Tax Board, Employment Development Department, and State Board of Equalization.

We pride ourselves on both our extensive knowledge of tax law and our dedication to superior customer service. It can often be very daunting for our clients to deal with the federal and state taxing entities, and we try to take away the fear, handling our clients’ matters with a level of compassion unseen in most other law firms. We believe the key to success is working in good faith, gaining trust and good standing with other lawyers and the courts in which we practice. We make it a priority to always ensure that we relieve the anxiety and fear that our clients have when they come in for their initial consultation or a meeting with their attorney. We understand that tax problems are intimidating and make our clients very anxious, so we have a completely open door policy for our clients to come meet with their attorney in our office, or contact them anytime by phone or email. This policy enables our attorneys to develop a personal relationship with our clients who have all become a part of the RJS LAW family. We strive to relieve the fear and frustration, keeping the lines of communication between client and attorney open and our billing practices transparent. Every employee at RJS LAW is truly passionate about helping our clients, and one way we do that is by clearly explaining our course of action, what we will do for them, and what we would like them to do for us. RJS LAW is committed to its clients first and foremost. In this day and age, it seems like customer service is sometimes compromised in order for a company to turn a bigger profit, but we don’t think that’s good business. Because of this devotion to excellent customer service, we are proud to say we have had absolutely no unhappy clients or legal billing disputes, have never had to file a lien to collect a client’s unpaid bills, and have had no client confrontations regarding our billing practices. We have a 100% customer satisfaction rate, and we will do everything and anything to continue this excellent statistic.

We understand that trust is paramount to the success of our firm. Clients need to trust that we are honest and that we are working our hardest to solve their tax problems. In order to help build that trust, we encourage all our clients, both past and present, to write testimonials and reviews of their experiences with RJS LAW. These are posted on numerous websites including our firm’s website, and serve as a great introduction to potential new clients. Clients tell us often that it is because of our testimonials that they choose to retain us, because they feel they can trust us with their problems. We offer free consultations to all our potential clients, allowing them to ask any question they have about their case and build a foundation for a successful working relationship. We are honest and upfront with our clients, especially at their initial consultation, and often give free legal advice to clients who would not completely benefit from our services.

We are also committed to empowering our community by sharing our knowledge and expertise with them through local and national media outlets. Our attorneys have been published in various academic journals, spoken at events and conferences, have written articles which have been appeared in local media publications, and are professors at local universities. Ronson has been interviewed by many local and national media companies, appearing in both print and television media. He has been quoted as an industry expert in all local print media, including the San Diego Union Tribune, San Diego Business Journal, San Diego Daily Transcript, and others, as well as national television stations One America News Network and The Daily Buzz, and local news stations Fox 5, ABC 10, NBC 7, and KUSI 9. We are proud to be considered industry experts by these prestigious companies and grateful they put their trust in our expertise. Ronson has gone through an extensive vetting process by the local and national media companies so they are sure of his experience and trustworthiness before they turn to him as their expert. These companies want to ensure when they call upon an industry expert, that they are committed to ethics, honesty, and integrity, and we are proud all of San Diego’s news stations feel Ronson encompasses and embodies those traits. They put their reputation on the line when they ask for contributors, and we are truly honored that they have put their trust in our ethical character and ability. We try to share our knowledge with the public through television and print to help accurately inform our society and serve as a reputable reference on all tax issues.

He has also been honored by San Diego Metro Magazine as both a 2014 Mover to Watch and 2014 Best Attorney, by San Diego Daily Transcript as both a 2013 and 2014 Top Tax Lawyer, and by the San Diego Business Journal as a 2014 Best of The Bar. The Martindale-Hubbell AV Rating is one of the highest honors an attorney can receive.
