Mr. Feffer's four-decade legal career included stints as an assistant U.S. attorney and, in the Justice Department during the Carter administration, as deputy assistant attorney general for criminal tax investigations. He was best known as a criminal tax defense lawyer with the Washington firm of Williams & Connolly from 1986 until his retirement in 2010.

Mr. Feffer's clients included basketball star Michael Jordan and the Church of Scientology, which, with his counsel, won a protracted battle with the federal government to be recognized as a religious tax-exempt organization.
