Igor has more than 36 years of experience in the areas of financial, charitable, and estate tax planning, both in general and in the context of marital dissolutions. He has extensive knowledge of ESOPs, executive compensation planning, disability, life insurance planning, and asset protection planning.
Igor has vast experience as an expert witness in family law and complex financial matters. He has extensive relationships within the family law community and exceptional insight into the benefits and merits of financial and insurance planning in full congruency with the traditional tax and accounting services.
His expertise as a Forensic Financial Planner is unique and is a valuable asset to the firm’s team. Unlike forensic accountants, Forensic Financial Planners have the requisite expertise to testify on imputed interest calculation on assets available for support, retirement and financial planning in the context of divorce, and life insurance and annuity valuation, and ownership issues in corporate and trusteed settings. Igor has testified as a financial expert more than 60 times throughout California, both in courts and via written declarations.
