GET Tax help
I had an issue with back GET taxes I didn't even know I owed. Richard was very professional, and compassionate. He got me a deal when I didn't really deserve one. If I ever need a tax later again, I will be using Richard

Amazing results in tax case
I discovered Richard after doing some research regarding my tax issue. I found his blog that give me a big picture perspective. I found it very informative and it put my mind at ease. So I set up a meeting. And after meeting him in person oh, I knew he was the right person to represent me in my case. Throughout the entire process he was attentive, thoughtful, and proactive. Every detail was carefully inspected to ensure that no mistakes we made. In the end, he helped to settle my case with extraordinary results. I am beyond grateful to have found Richard to assist me in my matter.
