Our Services

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.

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 50 years include hundreds of cases with recoveries ranging from a few thousand dollars to many million dollars.

At your option, we can consult with your attorney on the implementation of this plan, or we can execute this plan with our attorneys who specialize in post judgment enforcement.

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 to minimize unnecessary costs to you.

We will always keep you informed so 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.

Keep in mind, 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 research and asset recovery of our clients judgments.

Our promise is to always maintain the highest ethical standards while bringing home positive results for our clients. 

PRIMARY AREAS OF EXPERTISE

Judgment Enforcement

Why do you need experienced professionals?

You may have won your case, and obtained a judgment, but you have not collected. Law enforcement and the courts offer little if any help. In fact, recovery is not in their job description.

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 situation. Your first question is: Should you pursue the recovery process? An informed decision requires knowing the probability of recovering your losses. This requires preliminary forensic review into the subjects’ assets and liabilities, as well as the financial condition of their entities and affiliates or other possible sources of recovery.

A full preliminary financial forensic review 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.  More…

Financial Forensics

Are the numbers lying to you?

Our forensic accountants are a different breed of CPA. Their specialized skills and training are essential in asset recovery operations to locate diverted money and assets.

Forensic accounting puts all the financial documents in your case under a microscope, searching for clues and irregularities. Financial Forensic Services accountants analyze, interpret, and summarize the data to assist the forensic research team in tracking down your assets for recovery. Our objective as forensic specialists is to present complex financial and business-related issues in a manner that is both understandable to laymen and yet properly supported for presentation in court. This allows us to present affidavits and deliver expert testimony, as well as prepare exhibits and visual aids for courtroom presentation to obtain the legal tools from the court to effectuate recovery.  Strong forensic evidence often will settle your case successfully without the expense of going to court.

“As an environmental law firm, we use Joe Dickerson to locate prior business owners and do corporate genealogies. He is persistent, that’s the key to a good investigator, and he has a knack for understanding how people move money and do business. That tells him what rocks to look under. Joe is vastly superior to other investigators in two ways: he lets you know what’s going on and he’s honest with you, because he tells you if there’s really anything there worth pursuing. He is unusually thorough and creative finding people. Joe has earned his fee every time.” “If the information is to be found, then I believe that they will find it. Their service enabled me to do a much better job for my client.”

” I was prepared to dismiss a federal case involving millions of dollars against a local individual who claimed to have no substantial assets. After your staff hit the records and delved into the transactions behind the transactions, you discovered the individual to actually be worth a few million dollars. We continued the case to conclusion. We were also very happy with the financial background examinations you conducted of the former directors of two failed national banks. The heart of any civil case is whether there is a pot at the end of the lawsuit. You were our lucky leprechaun in finding such pots.”

“When I was general counsel for First Interstate Bank, I used Joe Dickerson for locating assets, investigating behavior and asset discovery. He did excellent work and always got the information I needed without compromising the bank in any way. He’s more thorough and kept in better touch with me than other investigators. I’d give him a grade of 96 or 97 out of 100.”
