Litigation Support – DSJ Overview

Litigation Support:

When business disputes become legal disputes, oftentimes attorneys require consultants who have experience and expertise in testifying in highly technical areas including forensic accounting, business valuation, internal auditing, taxation, finance, audit and accounting as well as industry-specific knowledge.  Lucky for you, we happen to have all of the above.

Indispensable Support Team:

DSJ’s work completed before a trial starts is just as important as the trial itself.  Without proper consultation with our litigation support experts, an attorney may be underprepared in the courtroom.  Our team assists in the discovery process by developing document requests, preparing interrogatories and conducting interviews, assisting in pretrial depositions, and reviewing and critiquing the opposing counsel’s financial expert’s record thoroughly.

Our support is not limited to pretrial preparation, however, DSJ is also proud to provide our clients with expert witness testimony.  Not only do we offer it, but our firm has also been retained by the SEC on multiple occasions to provide expert testimony & forensic accounting services in several Wall Street cases.
