Expert Testimony

Litigation Support

Stephen Kirkland has testified as an expert witness in five U.S. Tax Court cases in Atlanta, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. He has also testified in U.S. District Court, family court, and other state courts. These cases were driven by tax audits, marital dissolution, shareholder disputes, bankruptcy, wire fraud, and other financial matters.

In these cases, Stephen opined on the reasonableness of compensation amounts, determined lost profits and economic damages, and answered many other financial questions.

Since 1995, Stephen has provided analyses and reports in about one hundred cases involving reasonable compensation issues, including U.S. Tax Court cases (the vast majority of which settled prior to trial).
