He has years of experience, first as a Certified Public Accountant and as an Internal Revenue Agent and an attorney, an Estate and Gift Tax Agent, Income Tax Auditor and Pension Trust Examiner from 1964 to 1966. This practice included financial, economic and accounting experience with various accounting firms from 1959 to 1961.  This included all aspects of financial analysis, statement preparation, IRS examinations, consulting with clients, statement preparation and presentation. 

Upon departing from employment with the Internal Revenue Service, he commenced the practice of law in 1966 with a law firm where he took over the practice of a deceased attorney in a small law firm in which he had full responsibility for the tax and corporate practice.

In 1968, he started his own law firm which specialized in tax law and evolved to be the largest tax law firm in Philadelphia, Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD.  The firm, Bluestein and Prusky, employed more than 12 tax attorneys, all of whom were accountants, masters in taxation, and had prior governmental tax experience.  The firm encouraged all of those young lawyers to publish articles in various tax journals and to lecture before numerous organizations. 

As the head of his law firms, he employed numerous young tax attorneys whom he trained in the areas of tax law, corporate matters, business matters, trust and estate planning and real estate tax issues.  Ronald has represented numerous clients in their various corporate and tax matters in the Philadelphia’s office, the Washington office and the Baltimore office.  His knowledge and skill in these areas of legal representation increased by also becoming the owner and creator of various international and domestic business ventures, including real estate venture, international trade companies, equipment leasing companies, health clubs, petrol stations, finance companies and other international and domestic business ventures.
