Orlando Gotay patiently, and step by step, went through the FTB formulas and made it all comprehensible.
He is personable and understanding and very generous with his time. And we met the deadline.

In life there are NO coincidences. Having been at the right place and at the right time is how I was introduced to Orlando Gotay.
He is by definition to me: humble, hardworking, dedicated, thee most social & critical thinking attorney I've know thus far in my lifetime. He made himself available when needed and always provided me with straightforward answers regarding my case, but always allowed me to make the final decisions myself.
Personally he assisted through what was years of taxes and simplified the matter in layman's terms so that I could grasp. When it comes to dealing with State & Federal tax issues its Orlando!
I personally feel very fortunate to have worked and continue to work with him.
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I heartily endorse Orlando Gotay. He really knows tax law, and is extremely bright, hardworking, experienced and fearless. He can make the incomprehensible tax code understandable to a layperson without being at all condescending. He's my go-to attorney for tax issues. I refer clients to him, and he will be my first choice to represent me or my family if we ever need a tax attorney.
