Eighty percent of the civil judgments awarded to creditors are never collected. Financial Forensic Services can help make you one of the twenty percent that is successful.
THE FINANCIAL FORENSIC DIFFERENCE
We have solutions. Whether your need is Financial Forensic Services’ judgment enforcement, or consultation, the trained specialists at Financial Forensic Services will craft a specific strategy for your case.
Asset Recovery — Our focus is to aggressively but legally and ethically help you recover your losses. First, we need to hear your story and the details. Then we can advise you on the options available for your particular problem. Your first question is: Should you pursue the recovery process? An informed decision requires knowing the probability of recovering your losses. This requires a preliminary investigation into the subjects’ assets and liabilities, as well as the financial condition of their affiliates or other possible sources of recovery.
A Sound Assessment — This preliminary investigation will locate and evaluate the new information you need to make a knowledgeable analysis of your situation. These additional facts are evaluated by our staff, including our attorneys and forensic accountants. We will give you our view of the probable outcome. You will know the extent of recoverable assets, if any, and you will receive our professional opinion on the advisability of moving forward.
Locating Assets — A full investigation can locate and document hidden and diverted assets, securities, bank accounts, cash, real estate, and personal property that others may miss. Cash and other assets can easily be transformed and disguised in this digital age. Once located and documented, we develop and implement a strategy to reclaim your money in a timely and efficient manner.
Strategic Planning — Our staff will tailor a strategy specifically for your case. Whether for financial investigation and/or judgment enforcement, you will have a dedicated team of investigators, attorneys, forensic accountants, and computer specialists required to get the job done.
Execution — At your option, we can consult with your attorney on the implementation of this plan, or we can execute this plan ourselves, using attorneys who specialise in post judgment enforcement.
Your Case, Your Reality — You will always know the status and the reality of your case as it unfolds — the good news and the bad. If there isn’t a reasonable probability that you can recover your losses, we tell you as soon as we know.
Your Satisfaction — Keeping you informed at every step delivers cost-effective results for your case. This approach is realistic and ethical. Why go further unless your desired outcome is possible? In most cases it is. Just ask our satisfied clients.
Results Driven — Our clients frequently recover 100% of their judgments. Persistence pays. We recovered $42 million from a five-year-old embezzlement case. In a case where other attorneys and investigators had given up, Financial Forensic Services has located hidden assets and recovered $1.2 million plus an additional $300,000 in interest for its client. Successes for our clients over the past 40 years include hundreds of cases with recoveries ranging from a few thousand dollars to many million dollars.
Education and Technology — There will always be new angles to financial fraud, embezzlement, and complex schemes to separate honest people from their assets. We make significant investments in training, forensic technology, computers, and software for financial investigation and asset recovery.
Art and Science — Modern technology is essential, yet the human resources at Financial Forensic Services make the real difference. Our professional staff combines talent, decades of experience, and special training to analyze and mine the documents, databases, and records in your case. The results lead to diverted assets, established patterns of activity for our investigators, or reveal fraudulent transactions.
Integrity — Financial Forensic Services and judgment enforcement are often misunderstood. The real world is not a TV show. Financial investigations and asset recovery require special expertise. Our professionals maintain the highest ethical standards while bringing home positive results for our clients.
Questioned Document Examination — Forensic document examination is used in a variety of cases — estate matters, insurance settlements, arson investigations, mail fraud, forgeries, con games, counterfeiting, and embezzlement. Financial Forensic Services experts can answer this question: Is the document genuine? Documents in question could be a bank check, contract, will, handwritten letter, email, threat letter, or even a suicide note. We can also examine official documents and identification such as passports, driver’s licenses, petition signatures, and voter registrations. Our forensic document expert systematically examines questioned documents using scientific techniques and equipment:
• Handwriting and signature comparisons
• Damaged document reconstruction
• Detection of alterations, obliterations, and indented impressions
• Comparisons of document printing methods
Many courtroom successes hinge on the validity of documents produced in discovery or introduced by your adversaries. We can provide expert testimony and visual presentation aids about these questions:
• Is the signature genuine?
• Are the person’s initials on a contract or will?
• Has the document been forged? By whom?
• Did one individual author several documents?
• Who authored the anonymous letter?
• Was the hand of the will’s signatory guided by another?
• Did the doctor or staff subsequently alter the medical records?
• Are the initialed changes genuine on the contracts?
• What is written under the cross-outs?
• Was the document written on the date indicated?
