Los Angeles Forensic Accounting Firm

Bonaventure Hotel Los AngelesA Los Angeles-Based Forensic Accounting Firm with Years of Experience

Known as the “city of angels,” Los Angeles is among the most populous metropolitan areas in the United States, if not the globe. Home to the bulk of the film and TV industry, as well as cultural icons like Beverly Hills, a labrynthine freeway system, and palm trees (albeit transplanted), Los Angeles is known the world round. Founded in 1781, L.A., thanks in part to a nearly ideal climate, continues to enjoy its position as one the most economically powerful cities anywhere.

The accounting firm of Zivetz, Schwartz, and Saltsman has been serving the Los Angeles area since 1969 and specializes in the area of forensic accounting. The term “forensic” in this case means “suitable for a court of law.” Forensic accountants integrate skills in accounting and auditing, as well as specialized investigative expertise to conduct investigations, the results of which can be used in a court of law.

Forensic Accounting includes litigation support which refers to cases that require accounting assistance in legal disputes involving the calculation and estimation of monetary damages. Insurance claims, fraud, marital dissolution and subsequent support issues are all examples of cases where a forensic accountant would assist with litigation support.

Investigative support involves the participation of a forensic accountant in cases that are of a criminal nature such as securities or insurance fraud. Forensic accountants are often called upon to give testimony as expert witnesses at a trial.
