A. Christine (Chris) Davis is an accounting, financial, and economic damages expert and testifies in state and federal courts. With over 30 years of professional experience, Chris's expertise has proved vital to achieving successful resolutions and outcomes whether at trial, in mediation, or upon concluding a financial investigation. Prior to founding Financial Evidence Group, Chris held numerous leadership positions at CPA and consulting firms as a partner or managing director.

 

Chris provides damages calculations, accounting expertise, and expert testimony by deposition and at trial on matters involving commercial damages such as lost profits, complex accounting analyses involving accounting and auditing standards (GAAP and GAAS), valuation methods and estimates, and financial disputes among prior partners or parties to a contract. A highly experienced forensic accountant, she is also regularly retained to conduct internal investigations and consult on matters involving accounting and financial reporting irregularities, allegations of accountant malpractice, wage and hour claims, and financial fraud claims.

 

Chris is a licensed CPA in California, New York, and the District of Columbia, and holds credentials in business valuation and financial forensics. Earlier in her career, she was a financial statement auditor and tax professional at two CPA firms, including a Big 6 firm. She is a published author and teaches CLE programs for Practising Law Institute and Continuing Education of the Bar of California.

Effective May 2022, the AICPA, the premier national association of Certified Public Accountants in the U.S. with more than 428,000 members in 130 countries, appointed Chris to serve as a member of the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) Credential Committee. This vital Committee supports the AICPA through various impactful assignments with the principal goal of advancing the members' education, training, and expertise in forensic accounting and financial investigations. As one of a select group of highly experienced forensic CPAs comprised of only 9 members, Chris considers this appointment to the CFF Credential Committee both an honor and a privilege. 

Having provided expert consulting and testimony for over 25 years, Chris has the battle-tested frontline experience to persuasively communicate her findings with clarity, objectivity, impact, and care.

I would like to be remembered as someone who used whatever talent she had

to do her work to the very best of her ability.
