How I Might Be Able to Assist

My background is a mixture of public accounting and private sector business. In the public arena I have worked for some of the largest CPA firms in the world.  I began in NYC with Arthur Andersen, moved to Pricewaterhouse Coopers in Boston and came to San Diego to where I developed the Forensic Accounting Department for BDO Seidman. As an expert witness the vast majority of my case load was related in some way to wrongful termination employment causes of action and/or business valuation issues. My experience in the private sector covers a broad range of executive positions from COO to CEO. In all of these positions there was a mixture of management, human resources and accounting responsibility.
