read moreI am a C.P.A. who has used Daniel and his firm for various client issues and tax law questions. My work with Daniel and his staff has been very professional and with positive results. Daniel's knowledge of tax law and IRS procedure have been invaluable to me.

read moreFinding Layton & Lopez Tax Attorneys was like hitting the jack pot. We FINALLY found a firm that was expertly knowledgeable in handling challenges with the IRS. Daniel Layton was our main client contact, and he worked very closely with us. We did everything he told us to do, and we were able to reach a reasonable agreement with the IRS. We tried two other law firms before them, which resulted in wasted money. We are very grateful to Layton & Lopez for resolving an issue that had been ongoing for 15 years. Medi-Syn, Inc. highly recommends Layton & Lopez, LLC for assisting you with your corporate tax matters.

read moreI hired this law office to represent me before the California Franchise Tax Board. The FTB had decided to audit one of my state tax returns. Daniel Layton, the attorney that represented me, was fantastic! He was constantly in touch with me, letting me know of everything that was happening and making recommendations on how to proceed. I have hired other law firms where you never hear from anyone for months and there's no one to communicate with. But not here. This firm's client communication is top notch and I really appreciated that. Undergoing a tax audit is anxious for anyone, and I was really glad to have them handle it so carefully. Oh yeah - and the tax audit result was a 100% success in my favor.

read moreI have had the pleasure of working with Dan Layton when I have brought him aboard as a team member for clients I was representing that needed to petition or had already petitioned the U.S. Tax Court. Dan has proven himself invaluable with his legal training, experience and support. I plan to continue using him for future clients where legal representation is an integral part of my strategy to ensure a successful resolution to the tax controversy. That is the highest recommendation I can offer.
