    Richard Litwin is an excellent attorney. I have had the pleasure of knowing him for over 15 years. He is the go-to guy for any sales and use tax issue. His list of awards, published works and lectures clearly shows his high level of expertise. He is very detail oriented and really cares about his clients. I highly endorse this lawyer.
