As a professional accountant, you worked long and hard to obtain your CPA degree and other credentials, and you believe passionately in providing excellent service to your clients. However, you were in the wrong place at the wrong time, or you got in with the wrong people or somehow got unfairly accused of wrongdoing. You now face a felony accounting charge, which could lead to MANDATORY PRISON TIME as well as professional sanctions, fees, loss of business, and the implosion of your professional reputation.
- Perhaps as a result of instructions from someone higher up in your office, you engaged in behaviors, such as changing records, failing to report illegal activity or deceiving a client. Even though you knew (or probably should have known) to avoid following the lead of the higher ups, you now find yourself facing massive criminal charges;
- Or maybe you engaged in dubious accounting practices that you knew were on the edge of acceptability but you had no idea they could lead to multiple felony charges;
- Or perhaps someone in your office or a dissatisfied client accused you of something that you absolutely did not do. You are not exactly sure how to prove your innocence.
- Or perhaps investigators pursued you as a result of a clerical or computer error.
