    Jim is the best Tax Attorney I have ever heard speak: he is clear, concise, and speaks so that you can Understand The Issue! Also, he is very giving of his time to the rest of us: he speaks every December and January to the LACBA and PBA Attorneys about the latest legislative year. And he is very helpful (and kind) when consulted about unusual Real Property Tax issues and is a Real Property Tax Registered person for LA County (pursuant to the Board Of Supervisors' municipal ordinance after Mr. Noguez' departure). Tactful and a good sense of humor, so (off TV) what more is an Attorney supposed to provide?? In real life, reasoned analysis and appropriate solutions! And he does! Ever since he was at the Calif Controller's office, when he had to rule on allowing as a funeral expense the annual deduction of a decedent's cryogenic chamber. Jim is a delight!
