Sample Services

Richard P. Friedman v Ralph Anderson and Eisner, LLP- Supreme Court, New York County (2005) 

Defendant Anderson's legal counsel engaged Cathy Allen to assist with this case. She was qualified as an expert and reported on the application of the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct to the facts. 

I had the pleasure of working with Cathy Allen in connection with her engagement as an expert witness. The case involved novel issues of ethical standards to be applied to accountants. We also were under strict time pressure. Cathy was resourceful and provided a prompt, thorough and thoughtful analysis of the issues. She was a real asset and I would not hesitate to use her services again.
