Forensic Accounting

Thompson Divider Light

We provide exceptional forensic accounting and expert witness testimony tailored to the specific needs and circumstances of your family law case.

What is Forensic Accounting?

In simple terms, we dig into financial records to determine proper ownership and value at a given time. This includes providing calculations of key data points such as spousal and child support, Marital Standard of Living, and business values.

To go a bit deeper, forensic accounting is the investigation and analysis of business and personal books & records to establish facts or evidence in a court of law, mediation or other settlement situation. Thompson Accounting provides professional forensic financial consulting and expert witness testimony of financial issues, with specialization in family law related matters.
