Our principals have over 40 years experience as financial advisors and forensic accountants, helping individuals, businesses and attorneys on their accounting, tax and litigation matters.  Our principals have been hired by Fortune 500 companies to help them identify losses, disclose business value and safeguard their assets. We unlock the mystery behind the numbers and that is invaluable to our clients.  In fact, we are so well-respected that we were hired by our state's CPA Society to teach our peers how to interview suspects and how to detect possible fraud.  Further, our litigation principal has been hired by several governmental bodies to audit units of the government and identify any misconduct or mismanagement of funds.
