Financial transactions provide a wealth of information above and beyond the general movement of funds. This webinar will show you how to use these documents in many different types of cases. The presentation will first detail the anatomy of a financial transaction, as well as currency reporting documents required by the Bank Secrecy Act. Suggestions for obtaining, organizing and analyzing financial documents will also be illustrated. The session will then cover the alternative uses for financial transactions, such as potential witness leads, determination of lifestyle, alibi, and corroboration of witness statements. Lastly, using an actual case scenario, the presenter will show how a financial analysis can be used to mitigate the impact of Sentencing Guidelines calculations regarding loss amounts.
While this webinar is geared primarily toward paralegals and investigators, attorneys will also find it informative. Presented by Pamela Bishop, Commonwealth Litigation Support Services, Inc., Ashland, VA
