Forensic accounting is a highly specialized field within the overall discipline of accounting that developed decades ago. The forensic accountant must have knowledge far greater in depth and breadth than a mere accountant or even a CPA. They must have the ability to trace and analyze complex financial transactions and data to formulate an opinion that will stand up to scrutiny and is defensible in court, if need be. Developing a defensible opinion, sometimes without the aid of all the information due to difficulty or inability to obtain records, requires special skills and years of experience to reach the best conclusions.
