Testimonials

Re: Won tax case in Kentucky. Whew! When I learned the good news this afternoon, I can’t begin to tell you what a relief I experienced to be liberated from the year-long tax nightmare involving Ryyyy LLC! As all of us sadly know, simple justice is often not simple at all but can be financially and emotionally draining. The fact that it has prevailed this time is largely thanks to the support of each of you. Please know that your efforts on my behalf will ever be remembered with gratitude. I hope that in the future I can thank each of you in person.
