"I would like to thank you again for your time, energy and effort in helping us save nearly $200,000 in proposed sales tax assessments. I could not be more thrilled that you were able to achieve a positive result despite our lack of upfront planning ... the process would have been far less complicated had I simply sought your counsel in advance. I will not repeat this mistake in the future."
