Expert Witness & Litigation

Know Your Options when Assets and Legalities Intersect.


The range of accounting issues involved in court disputes today covers so many aspects of finance that veteran CPAs like those at Stanislawski & Company are in high demand.

CPA litigation services encompass several roles, and we fully comprehend how to adhere to applicable standards, rules, and laws when engaging the following: 

  • Expert Witness - a specialist who may present an opinion without having been a witness to any occurrence relating to the lawsuit or criminal case
  • Consultant - an adviser who does not testify but informs
  • Other - a trier of fact, special master, court-appointed expert, referee, arbitrator or mediator. 

Being able to deal with the unexpected is a key part of how we perform as an expert witness. Opposing counsel usually will try to build a case around its own experts rather than attack a witness who is poised and objective.

Fees vary depending on the complexity and needs of the client’s case. Before accepting an assignment, we analyze the scope of the case. A fee schedule allows for the possibility that the workload may increase/decrease as a result of case changes or out of court settlements.

CPAs willing to endure having their professional lives scrutinized in the public arena of a courtroom means that experience, skills, acumen, and results must be exceptional.  That is the team at Stanislawski & Company.
