Some background information about Dick Bufkin - Top Forensic Accountant in Dallas

After his undergraduate work in accounting, Dick Bufkin began his career with Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co., which was then the largest of the “Big 8” public accounting firms.  He continued with the firm for three years until he began law school.  He continued to practice accounting throughout law school when he was also an accounting instructor in the Texas Tech University School of Business.  After law school, he began law practice in Dallas, which he has continued since 1976.

Mr. Bufkin’s early law practice concentrated in the areas of tax law and business related transactions.  While practicing law, he obtained a second law degree, an LLM (taxation) from SMU, attending those law classes primarily in the evenings.  During the last 20 years, his primary practice areas have been financially oriented trial work in business, bankruptcy adversary and divorce cases.

The  creative and “outside the box” formulation and presentation of lost profits and other financial information have become a high priority in Mr. Bufkin’s trial work.  More and more frequently, Mr. Bufkin has been called upon to be a consulting expert and testifying witness, providing these skills to other lawyers and their clients.

Enhancing his presence in business cases, Dick Bufkin has has recently received his Certification in Financial Forensics (CFF) from the AICPA.  He has also completed numerous hours of formal professional education courses directly focused on forensic accounting and litigation service skills.

One particularly helpful training was dedicated solely to operation of the widely used Quick Books accounting software.  The training has provided the ability to (i) navigate through the books and records of opposing parties who use Quick Books, and (ii) create custom reports from those records.  Creating custom reports allows one to showcase and simplify key evidence.  This has already been invaluable in several cases.

Dick Bufkin is one of very few lawyers anywhere holding the CFF credential from the AICPA.
