Walnut Creek Accountant Malpractice Lawyers
Businesses and individuals rely on accountants to ensure that they don't conflict with ever-changing local, state and federal tax codes and laws to help them keep their financial books and payroll in order because penalties and fees for making a late payment or overlooking a due date can be quite steep. Accountants also provide other financial services, such as bill payments. Nevertheless, when an accountant overlooks a due date, makes a mistake or commits some type of accountant malpractice, it can put their client in a very difficult financial position. If you or someone you care for has reason to believe you are a victim of accountant malpractice, the Moraga accountant malpractice attorneys at Balamuth Law, may be able to help.
What is Considered Accountant Malpractice?
When an accountant intentionally or unintentionally overlooks important financial obligations or willfully commits embezzlement, fraud or another act of financial malfeasance, it puts the client in a very unenviable position. They must contend with the financial fallout of the malpractice and may have severely diminished funds to address these difficulties - compounding their dire financial situation. The experienced lawyers at Balamuth Law, have many years of experience assisting clients in these matters and have the forensic accounting experience to discern how and when the malpractice occurred.
Accounting malpractice cases can be incredibly complex because if the malpractice is deliberate, a dishonest accountant can often hide their malfeasance in ways that are very difficult to determine and prove.
