"I have personally used Ms. Powers as the investigative accountant in what was an accounting nightmare. Two principals had formed two companies owning different percentages of both and all but ignored the percentages of ownership, the accounting for the separate entities and the receivables of the separate entities in their calculations of compensation and accounting. When I was called in, the majority shareholder had already fired the minority shareholder and had threatened to freeze the minority out of all control and ownership.

"Ms. Powers immediately began gathering information and accounting records. She unraveled the ownership and receivables confusion and did an analysis of the compensation and perks received by both principals during the period of common ownership. She also helped to put a value on the companies so that I could negotiate a reasonable buyout of our client's interests.

"Ms. Powers performed her work with an eye to my need for prompt and accurate reports while at the same time understanding the need to economically serve an individual client. It would have been very easy to have spent what little equity our client had in the companies in legal and accounting fees. I was very pleased that Ms. Powers both saw and understood my dilemma.

"I believe that Ms. Powers has the forensic accounting skills, demeanor and drive to properly and accurately represent the State or any other entity in any investigation involving valuation, improper accounting, embezzlement or fraud. I most heartily recommend Ms. Powers and her company for her work."
