BARRY A. KOZYRA, ESQ. & JUDITH A. HARTZ, ESQ. SPEAK AT NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CERTIFIED VALUATION ANALYSTS CONFERENCE
On Friday, September 14, 2012, Barry A. Kozyra and Judith A. Hartz appeared as guest speakers to lecture on: Techniques for Proving the Family Law Case: Using Forensics to Present a Winning Hand.
Mr. Kozyra explained how to use third party sources to prove aspects of the case. Among other sources of information, he discussed the importance of loan, mortgage, and credit applications, financial statements, accountant work papers, and bankruptcy petitions, as well as examples of case law.
Ms. Hartz spoke about how to use direct sources, such as case information statements, interrogatories, requests for admissions, document requests, tax returns, bank records, certifications, and depositions while referencing case law examples.
Together, with their knowledge and a created fact pattern, Ms. Hartz and Mr. Kozyra were able to engage the over 100 accountants in attendance, and ensure they walked away with a better understanding of the significance of discovery and how forensic accountants can work together with attorneys in family law cases.
