With 75 years of combined experience, the law firm of Skeen & Kauffman, L.L.P., is able to offer clients advocacy across a specific range of legal areas. Attorneys Skeen & Kauffman were employed at the same law firm more than 25 years ago, and formed Skeen & Kauffman, L.L.P., in Baltimore, Maryland, in 2004 to meet the needs of clients in a few select areas of law.

Attorney Stephen P. Kauffman is a lawyer and former IRS revenue agent who brings this knowledge to bear during his representation of individuals and businesses with a wide variety of tax-related matters. He represents clients with issues ranging from trust-fund recovery penalties to IRS audits and appeals. Attorney James D. Skeen, is a third-generation maritime law attorney and has been a proctor in admiralty in the U.S. Maritime Law Association for more than 30 years. He represents East Coast clients who face maritime law issues in state and federal courts in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

The building in which Skeen & Kauffman practices law is owned by the members of the firm, debt free. Skeen & Kauffman does not waste money on lavish furnishings, and is therefore able to offer flexible billing terms while still providing quality legal representation. Low overhead means that attorney fees are applied toward legal representation and high technology rather than law firm amenities.

The clients served by our law firm include CPAs, individuals and businesses with IRS issues, insurance companies, law firms and Fortune 500 companies in New York, New Jersey and the Eastern Seaboard that have maritime issues in Maryland, small businesses and sole proprietorships with business formation or litigation concerns.
