I am a business tax attorney who provides clients with trusted advice concerning significant transactions, tax planning, and difficult challenges encountered in their daily operations. My practice is focused on state and local tax compliance and controversies, including Ohio and multistate sales/use tax, commercial activity tax, and personal income tax issues. Additionally, I represent client in negotiating and drafting agreements for commercial and real estate transactions, and in federal income tax controversies with the Internal Revenue Service.
Because of my tax background, I often advise clients on the business and tax implications related to their corporate structure and significant transactions. I take pride in understanding my clients' business needs and objectives so I can help them achieve their goals in the most beneficial, yet practical, manner.
Also, as former Chair of the Ohio State Bar Association Taxation Committee, I have been asked to present my opinion concerning tax laws and policy to Ohio legislatures on behalf of the Bar Association. These opportunities have given me invaluable insight into the legislative process and the practical considerations that mold tax policy.

I appreciate the straight-forward, factual, yet easy to listen to and follow presentation. Both presenters have good speaking voices. When there is much material to absorb and consider, a pleasant voice is very much appreciated. I understand that not every course should have this kind of structure, but for this one, it was perfect.

This was an informative presentation and it was presented well - organized, presented at a good pace, clearly explained and with an appropriate amount of illustration to keep it understandable. Overall this was one of the best presentations that I have heard.

Excellent webcast. Well summarized explanation of complicated state tax issues. Understandably Richard did not touch on all 50 states within a one hour webcast but he did a great job of broadly explaining state taxation concepts. I highly recommend this webcast!

My only feedback is there were 2 instructors, but it seemed as if one of the instructors wouldn't let the other one talk once he "jumped in". However, the content was very valuable and both instructors were great.

Thoroughly enjoyed this presentation as it was informative and straight to the point. The information presented was interesting as I was unaware of all the possible scenarios that allow exemptions of sales tax.
