Post-College and Omegasearch

Christopher-Sabec-after-collegeEventually, Christopher’s four years at Georgetown came to an end. He knew he wanted to go to law school, but he thought it best to take a couple years off. The experiences with the high school movie nights and the Princeton Review inspired him to look for another entrepreneurial outlet. The opportunity presented itself just after graduation. A real estate attorney who worked closely with Christopher’s mother asked him to research the Tax Reform Act of 1986. Within a few weeks, Christopher presented the attorney with everything he needed to know about the requirements of the Act and his resulting responsibilities. When Christopher was finished, the real estate attorney asked him if her would be willing to do the compliance work in return for a fee per transaction. Christopher agreed and, as a result, founded Omegasearch, Inc., a consulting firm specializing in the magnetic media processing of IRS data. By the following summer, Omegasearch was servicing fifty-five clients in five states. When one of their clients made an offer to buy the company from Christopher’s parents and himself, they accepted. They had successfully built and sold a company and Christopher had been introduced into the world of business.

Soon thereafter, Christopher began the process of applying to law school. On one of his visits to the career planning office at Georgetown, he stumbled upon a memo from the U.S. Tax Court, a forum for taxpayers to settle their differences with the IRS. They were looking for a traveling trial clerk to administer trials throughout the U.S. Christopher took the job and spent the next year traveling the country conducting trials for the Tax Court. He spent his free time that year exploring his changing cityscapes and applying to law school.
