This month we focus our newsletter on providing Family Law attorneys a quick-reference overview of tracing. Our article was written by Sue Olson, a staff accountant from our firm.
Sue has been in the forensic accounting field for 25 years and for the past 16, has provided valuable support to our clients and me. Although she offers her assistance in a variety of areas, she focuses much of her efforts on tracings.
Sue studied accounting at El Camino College and has taken additional courses through UCLA Extension. She is also taking courses in financial statement analysis. Once complete, she plans to study to attain certification as a fraud examiner. Her interest and adeptness in tracings has lead her to offer her skills to estate planning attorneys, in addition to attorneys who practice family law, to conduct probate/estate accounting tracings.
For a specific case on how tracing can be used to assist a client, I also recommend you visit Forensic Accounting Today issues 32 and 33 to review How Diligent Tracing Saved a Client Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars. The article was written by Tatyana Sklevin, CPA, CVA, CFE, one of our senior accountants. You may download the newsletters at http://www.anfusocpa.com/forensic-accounting-newsletters/.
If you have specific questions concerning tracing, we welcome you to contact Sue or me at the office.
