There has always been a potential dark side inherent in business. My passion is to evaluate what’s happened so a proper course of action can be determined - those who are wronged should be made whole.

Robert M. Caster, CPA, CIRA, CFE, CFF retired effective October 1, 2017.  He was the Partner in charge of Herbein’s Forensic group which provides Litigation Support, Bankruptcy, Insolvency services and general Forensic Services to a variety of clients.
