I was considering contesting my property taxes and emailed High Swartz with some basic information to see if it was worth pursuing. Stephen Zaffuto responded quickly with both great information and evidence of his having done some research on my specific situation. He gave me great counsel quickly, which is rare and much appreciated. – Benjamin M.
