"I am a litigation attorney who regularly engages various litigation consultants for litigation support. I first worked with Acuity Forensic's Tiffany Couch when we engaged her for Christensen Yachts, prior to its receivership. The State Court subsequently approved Acuity's employment for the court-appointed receiver. Tiffany and her able team played an integral role in that matter, where there were tens of millions of dollars at issue.

In the intervening years, I have worked with Acuity Forensics' Tiffany on matters such as where the opposing attorney and I stipulated with the court for Acuity to serve as a special, court-appointed master for forensic accounting issues and where the court has approved Acuity Forensic's Tiffany Couch for employment in chapter 11 bankruptcy cases with tens of millions of dollars at issue. I have also worked with Acuity Forensic's Tiffany Couch on partnership dissolution where partners are fighting over allegations of fraud and embezzlement.

In my experience, Ms. Couch has performed absolute top quality work with the highest degree of integrity. She is easy to work with, exceptionally hard working, and highly professional in court."
