Our Team


Welcome! We wanted to take a minute to introduce our ADCT team. We are devoted to launching this lawsuit in order to defeat place-of-birth taxation and intend to see it through all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States. We have been active for the last four years in other aspects of the difficulties of expat life; on blogs and social media sites, information sessions offered globally, media appearances and being involved one-on-one with those tormented by the deplorable situation faced by expats. Oh, and we are involved in another lawsuit you may have heard about (in Canada)!
