Testimonials

Greg Raffaele is objectively one of the best expert witnesses that I have ever worked with in my career as an attorney. Mr. Raffaele is such a highly skilled CPA with almost 30 years of experience in forensic accounting. In the case that I worked with him, he was extremely prepared, detail oriented, and passionate about his work on this matter. He was able to take a very complicated tracing case with minimal records from over a period of twenty years, and based on independently verifiable facts, generate a thorough and complete assessment regarding what could be said about the funds. This was no easy task as it required him in the matter of a week to go through over 1,000 pages of financial records and meticulously determine the information related to the source of the funds. On top of this, he was able to clearly and effectively explain this detailed information to me in a manner that I could understand, so that I could then effectively present it to the court. With his level of precision, Mr. Raffaele is one of the most skilled and trustworthy experts in his field. I highly recommend him based on the high quality of his work, as well as his passion, and ability to clearly explain complicated financial information.

I'm so grateful and thankful that I hired Mr. Greg Raffaele as my forensic accountant. My case was very complicated and ended in a five-day court trial. Mr. Raffaele was a star witness at my trial who spent many hours getting caught up on my case and was able to factually refute all of my ex-husband’s claims. He has tremendous attention to detail and was found by the judge to be extremely credible and, as a result, I was awarded 100% of the asset. Mr. Raffaele is a true professional and extremely passionate in his field of expertise. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a forensic accountant.

Client

I called Greg Raffaele looking to hire a forensic accountant for my fiancé’s divorce case. He ended up talking to me for almost an hour, giving me valuable advice and patiently answering my questions and concerns without even mentioning cost. To my surprise, he told me not to hire him! Given the facts of our case, our chances in court was between a "wobbler" and a "long shot." He advised that in our particular case, it would make more sense for us to accept the opposing party's ask than pay the cost to him and to our lawyer for going to court (not to mention the cost of time and emotional investment of a long trial). In an industry where clients' emotions run high and professionals take advantage of it for their own profit, I was touched by his honesty, humanity, and benevolence. He treated me like a human being rather than a dollar sign and was actually more concerned about what would be best for our lives than his own profit! From our conversation, I also believe he is extremely experienced and knowledgeable in his field. This is why I followed his advice and did not end up hiring him. But I want to give my endorsement to him to anyone who thinks they may need his services. I believe him to be a rare professional.

Client

I'm a business litigation attorney and lead trial counsel. My firm has never lost a case where we used the forensic accounting expert witness services of Greg Raffaele through trial. Whereas many experts are "hired guns," we have consistently found that court's in particular find Mr. Raffaele's methods to be very credible and objective. Thus we continue to use his services not just for trial but when we need to have an objective evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of our cases.

Client

I had the pleasure of working with Greg on a challenging collaborative case. This was a full team collaborative case and Greg was brought in to provide a small business evaluation. At first the business owner thought that the evaluation missed the target. However, after Greg thoroughly explained his protocols, his assumptions, and his methodology, it was apparent that there was integrity to his evaluation, and his valuation was accepted by the in spouse and the out spouse. Greg presented as being accustomed to working on a full team collaborative case, and modeled neutrality and expertise throughout the process of working with each client separately and together. I would not hesitate to recommend Greg to provide his business valuation services.

Attorney

In connection with my legal practice, I have had the pleasure of working with Greg in the past and found him to be knowledgeable, ethical, focused, service oriented and professional. The bonus is that he is also caring, related and sincere.

Attorney

What I like about Greg is his ability to explain the often complicated aspects of the business valuation process in a way that my clients and I can understand him, while at the same time having the professional skills to deliver an expert business valuation. Greg has donated his own time and energy to support the non-profit group Collaborative Divorce Solutions of Orange County (CDSOC) as it continues to promote the growth of cooperative divorce methods. He is always available to provide education and information to its collaborative professional members who seek his advice regarding the often complex process of valuing and/or dividing a community business asset in the divorce process.

Attorney

Greg Raffaele is the consummate professional in dealing with my Business Valuation. My case was very complex with multiple layers and extremely contentious, yet Greg was able to give me great comfort that my best interests were protected. His attention to detail and outside the box thinking was instrumental in settling the case and needless to say, comes with my highest recommendation.

Client

In an emotionally charged case involving, among other issues, cash flow and the value of the family business, the divorcing clients needed an experienced and neutral forensic CPA. Greg Raffaele distinguished himself, performing the tasks at the highest of professional and personal levels. Both spouses became fully invested in his efforts, then trusting in his findings, and naturally, and amicably settled their case.

Attorney

Greg has just been an absolute Godsend. He received my call from my website search for forensic accountants to help with my messy divorce, and his CROSSCOR website popped up. I called him and he immediately called me back. After I explained my complicated set of challenges, he steered me to the right attorney to help me with the legal matters. He is professional, responsible, honorable, humble, and the work that he did and presented to the court as well as to the litigants, was extremely detailed, well thought out, and analyzed down to the very penny. He even went above and beyond the call of duty with your work without proper pay due to him, as he could appreciate the difficult situation his client found herself in with a shortage of access to money. Most accountants would have abandoned further work if they were not paid, but he did what a Christian man of integrity would do, and he continued on to completion working without pay, because it was the right thing to do. Even though the overpaid litigants with deep pockets challenged him over and over and over again, and became unreasonably aggressive towards him in hopes to intimidate him, he handled all of their accusations at the deposition calmly, professionally, and with ease. This can only happen if he himself had fully studied every single number and knew all of the facts better than anyone else Even though opposing attorneys may have had the desire to argue with him, there was no arguing with him, as he knew the hard cold facts, and had analyzed the numbers back and forth, and up and down. Additionally, he provided additional suggestions to me with his wealth of experience in this industry, and gave me suggestions for a good family attorney as well who is sophisticated in these type of divorce cases. Greg is a true Rock Star, and I hope to continue to have the honor of working with hum for the rest of my divorce matters.
