Best Lawyer My Firm Ever Hired
I own a small business and had asked other attorneys my firm has used for a reference. I was told that Richard Colombik is one of the finest, brightest and most well respected tax lawyers in the country. The referral sources were correct, He is the best! My money is on this guy every time. He does not back down from representing our interests and I would highly recommend him!
Thank you Richard you are the best!

My family had an overwhelming tax problem. We had hired one of the TV places to solve our problem and they only took our money. I did not know where to turn as I did not want my friends to know the trouble I was in. I finally asked one of the well established people at my church and he referred me to Mr. Colombik. He fought the government for years and got them to reopen a case that my CPA had lost! Without Mr. Colombik and his great staff I do not know what I would have done. He is NOT the cheapest, but his is the best. You saved my life and my family. All I can say is Thank you

Richards intelligence and experience is far greater than any other attorney I have dealt with in 20 years. His CPA and accounting background along with his experience in complicated business structures has been a value to my business.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
