I have a question regarding back taxes. My current tax liability

Customer Question
I have a question regarding...
I have a question regarding back taxes. My current tax liability is 228K. My CPA is working with an IRS Revenue Officer to negotiate an Offer in Compromise, Installment Agreement. Would I be better served if I consulted a tax lawyer? Is there anything a lawyer can do that would result in a lower payment/liability?
