Glenmore Powers

Tax Law | Galloway, Wettermark, and Rutens LLP

G lenmore graduated attended law school at Roger Williams University School of Law and upon graduation with honors, proceeded to the University of Florida at Gainesville where he earned a Master of Laws in Taxation. Prior to attending law school, Glenmore worked as a police officer in upstate New York.  This provided him the knowledge and experience with which he has successfully represented numerous civil and criminal government agents in both state and federal lawsuits.

As a former IRS Chief Counsel attorney and a former Deputy Attorney General for the State of Alabama assigned to the position of Director of Investigations for the Alabama Department of Revenue,

he acquired considerable experience managing the investigations of complex criminal tax fraud cases, as well as in criminal tax prosecutions. In fact, he wrote the current Tax Fraud Manual by which many of Alabama’s Department of Revenue employees are trained in tax fraud detection.

Mr. Powers’ tax practice includes a wide array of substantive areas including income taxes, estate taxes, employment taxes, excise taxes, sales taxes and corporate taxes. He is routinely involved in complex civil tax examinations and administrative appeals on behalf of successful individuals and their closely held entities as well as corporations involving both domestic and foreign tax related issues.

He regularly provides advice and counsel to individuals and entities in the areas of estate and asset protection planning, elder law, business formation and governance, and internal corporate investigations.

When he isn’t practicing law, Glenmore (one of very few black belts in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Alabama) is often found teaching police and correction officers, federal agents, and anyone else willing to participate, self defense.
