Forensic Services Section

CalCPA's Forensic Services Section (formerly Litigation Sections) provides an expanded forum to facilitate participation and the exchange and dissemination of ideas and resources, identify relevant current events and trends, and to analyze technical issues and interpret applicable standards. The sections are composed of CPAs and members of other disciplines that have a common interest in the practice of forensic, valuation and litigation support and dispute resolution.
