Eric M. Bielitz began working with S.H. Block Tax Services as an associate attorney in February of 2018, but his interest in the law goes back much further than that. Ever since he was a child, Mr. Bielitz has always wanted to help people in need or who he thought were being treated unfairly, so he naturally gravitated toward the law.
In college, Eric studied Government and Politics at the University of Maryland and then worked as a paralegal for several years before going to law school at the University of Baltimore. His legal concentration was in Business Law, and he also received his LL.M. in Taxation from the University of Baltimore.
A version of Eric’s master’s thesis, a statistical analysis of sentencing outcomes in federal tax crimes cases, was given an honorable mention by the Federal Bar Association in it’s 2015 Donald C. Alexander Tax Writing competition.
After law school, Eric worked on a contract assignment in the Trust department of a Fortune 500 financial institution. When the contract ended, he started his own practice focused on the same tax resolution work we do here at S.H. Block Tax Services.
Eric truly enjoys helping others. He puts a lot of hard work into his clients’ cases and also strives to grow as a person and a professional. Tax Notes Federal recently noted that Eric was instrumental in the success of Baltimore’s pre-calendar call program. This program offers pro-bono assistance to unrepresented taxpayers.
His hard work is recognized by his peers, who named him a SuperLawyers® Rising Star in Tax Law in Maryland for 2021 and 2022!
Like the rest of us at S.H. Block Tax Services, he never forces a one-size-fits-most approach onto our clients. Instead, he takes time to learn about each of our clients and their unique circumstances and then applies his knowledge and experience to tailor a solution that best suits the individual.
When he’s not in the office, Eric is active in the Bar Association — especially the Tax Bar, and coaches his daughters’ youth soccer teams.
