OVERVIEW

About Raymond Rounds
General practice involving civil, domestic relations, custody/divorce, criminal, juvenile, credit/debtor actions, estate planning and tax issues. I have represented literally hundreds of divorcing parties, adoptive parents, guardians and conservators, and parents and children in all aspects of litigation. The taxation portion of the practice has included issues on state and federal income taxation issues, business planning taxation, and criminal defense representation for alleged intentional tax evasion. Recently more use of tax knowledge has been applied to taxation in domestic relation cases. The estate planning aspect of the practice has included all manners of estate planning, including wills, trusts, Medicaid, and probate for individuals and business owners, including tax reduction analysis as necessary. My activities have demanded my appearance in Utah Justice Courts, hundreds of appearances before Commissioners, appearances before virtually all Utah District Courts, the Second, Third and Fourth District Juvenile Courts, the federal court system, the federal tax court, the U.S. District Court, and the Utah Court of Appeals. I am also a former member of the active U.S. Air Force Judge Advocate General Corps, and a retired Judge Advocate in the Air Force Reserves. In addition to my law degree, I hold a Masters Degree in Tax Law. If your situation involves the military - whether it be the Air Force or any other branch such as the Army, Navy, or Marine Corps - I possess extensive knowledge of military law and regulations, and can help you find the best solution to your problem.
