Victim Advocacy & Internal Investigations
Nobody likes to be a victim. There are few worse pains than when a person violates your trust and kindness or abuses his or her access to your personal information and finances. Sadly, whether by a former friend, employee, partner or lover, the ease by which a person can both access and share personal, financial and intimate information is terrifying. If you are a victim of an Extortion and Blackmail or a more secretive Embezzlement, your concerns are likely magnified by potential and realized financial losses.
