Edward F. Esposito, CPA, CFE is a Certified Public Accountant in New York since 1984. He specializes in Forensic Accounting and Business Valuation. Mr. Esposito is active in the NYS Society of CPA’s, where he is a member of the Litigation Support Committee and the Business Valuation Committee. He spoke before the Business Valuation Committee, where he is also the chair of the 2011 Business Valuation Conference and the chair of the Continuing Professional Education subcommittee. He is a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE). Mr. Esposito had the misfortune of going through his own bitter divorce. His ex-wife hired TIGER WOODS’ divorce attorney, who promised the wife that the husband would pay his exorbitant fees! Since the ex-wife hired a Forensic Accountant, Edward wanted to testify as his own Forensic Accountant; however, his attorney objected! So, Edward fired him, and hired a young attorney, who permitted Mr. Esposito to testify as HIS OWN EXPERT WITNESS! At the trial, TIGER WOODS’ attorney tried all the tricks to get Mr. Esposito’s testimony “thrown out of court”. Not only did his testimony prevail, but Mr. Esposito educated the judge on the couple’s finances by using large charts in the courtroom. In the judge’s ruling, he ordered the wife to pay her own legal fees. On the next day, TIGER WOODS’ attorney resigned, along with the wife’s forensic accountant! Edward’s divorce was his best professional training yet, and it motivated him to become a Forensic Accountant. Edward Esposito was a partner in a manufacturing company, a real estate company, and a parking garage for over 20 years, where he worked on partner disputes, buy/sell agreements, business valuations, and estate planning. In 1982, he started his accounting career at Coopers & Lybrand (now PriceWaterhouseCoopers); while on the audit team, he worked on the historic breakup of AT&T. He graduated from Pace University, Magna Cum Laude, and passed the CPA exam in his senior year.
