Probate court matters generally involve four types of relationships:
Within each of these relationships, there is a responsible person who has a significant control over assets and a fiduciary duty to exercise care in performing that duty. Unfortunately, some people disregard their fiduciary duty and embezzle assets for their personal use.
Forensic Accounting and Investigative Services works with attorneys and probate court judges by:
- Reviewing filed inventories and accountings
- Requesting and analyzing supporting documentation
- Reconstructing accounts and transactions
- Investigating the activities of a fiduciary
Forensic Accounting and Investigative Services can assist attorneys in obtaining, analyzing, documenting and reporting on all of the financial information necessary to support or refute claims of misuse, theft and embezzlement which can result in recovery of assets.
