Litigation Support

We make your job easier

Whatever the reason for litigation — marital dissolution, shareholder/partner dispute, fraud, insurance claim, or a commercial lawsuit — some type of financial information will likely play an important role in resolving the matter. How that information is analyzed, interpreted and presented could determine the outcome.

That’s why you need the assistance of accounting professionals who understand how financial reports are developed, what the numbers mean and how to use them in testimony to support your case. These are areas in which Yount, Hyde & Barbour’s Litigation Support Team excels.

Jennifer Files
About Jennifer

Jennifer joined Yount, Hyde & Barbour in 2003 and holds a B.S. degree in accounting from Robert Morris University. She is a member of numerous organizations within the community, including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Virginia Society of Certified Public Accountants, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts and is also on the Special Review Committee of the Government Finance Officers Association.


Throughout her career, she has worked on a variety of audit, tax, and consulting engagements for clients across many industries. She continues to lead our clients Single Audit compliance, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and governmental audit needs. Since discovering her passion for internal controls and fraud prevention, she has performed numerous forensic accounting and litigation support engagements, including conducting forensic analysis and investigation and interviews of witnesses and potential persons of interest. Working in conjunction with YHB’s niche specialists, she is able to assist with internal control, fraud and litigation support needs across various industries.


She enjoys working with clients to identify deficiencies in their internal control environment, to find efficiencies in their processes, and to help clients defend and protect their bottom line.  Jennifer specializes in the design and implementation of internal controls to help prevent fraud. Because of her specialized knowledge, Jennifer is often invited to speak to audiences regarding internal controls, fraud and forensic accounting. She has expanded her expertise by becoming a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) and Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA).


Every client, every company, every control environment is unique. Jennifer takes the time to thoroughly understand her client’s needs and objectives. The result is a customized solution. No two businesses (or fraud cases) are alike, and for that reason, no two internal control structures should be either.
