His accreditation in Financial Forensics confirms his ability to apply financial principals and theories to issues involved in legal disputes, and, along with his significant courtroom experience, prepares him to act in an advisory capacity for a variety of litigation and investigative engagements. John has participated in over 100 speaking engagements during his career as an expert and has used these opportunities to share with fellow accounting and litigation support colleagues his passion for dispute resolution, fraud examination, and bankruptcy issues. Instrumental in the formation of professional groups including the Rochester/ Troy area CPA Small Practitioner Group and Southeast Michigan Chapter of the Certified Fraud Examiners, he was honored by the Michigan Association of CPAs with an invitation to Chair the first MACPA Fraud Conference. This conference was so successful that the MACPA made it an annual event, requesting that John also Chair the second conference.
