Sacramento tax attorney to close law practice

•  Recent Cases     updated  2011/05/14 11:30


A tax attorney who called herself the "tax lady" will no longer be practicing law.

Roni Deutch says she will be closing her law firm of 20 years and will surrender her law license.

The Sacramento Bee reports that Deutch made the announcement Thursday, saying her firm has a debt of about $10 million, while she has personal debt of $5 million.

Deutch, a nationally known lawyer who gained a measure of fame on late-night television commercials, ran into legal problems when then-Attorney General Jerry Brown filed suit, accusing her of cheating clients out of $34 million.

Deutch was accused of destroying millions of pages of documents and failing to pay about $435,000 in refunds to clients.

She now faces hundreds of counts of contempt and possible jail time. A hearing on the contempt of court allegations is scheduled for July 22.
