David Melton & Associates launch ASSETTRACING.COM Website
I am pleased to announce that our firm now has an extensive website and is open for business on the World Wide Web.  I hope the website will be a useful resource for our clients and particularly helpful to attorneys working with our firm.  The following information can be found at the website:

DRC Newsletters

All back issues of the DRC Newsletter from January of 1997 are indexed and available online.

Colorado Lawyer Article

The full text of my article, as published in the January 1999 Colorado Lawyer, “Establishing Separate Property Through Asset Tracing After Burford” is online.

Consulting and Testifying Expert Services Listed

Our consulting and testifying expert services are listed in detail and indexed to relevant issues of DRC Newsletter topics and other resource materials.  Service listing categories include:

Second Opinion Service

Wouldn't it be nice to have a second opinion on the work of your accounting expert and/or the opposing accounting expert in every case?  Now you can receive timely and cost effective second opinions from David Melton & Associates through our website.  This is a new service for attorneys and CPA expert witnesses.  Users of this service can submit reports online or by express mail and receive our review of the report by e-mail within five business days or sooner in emergency situations.

CLE and CPE

Information about continuing education for attorneys and CPAs in the area of asset tracing is found on our website.

Special Rate for Consultations through the Website

This special rate is offered to allow our clients to ask specific questions and discuss case strategies (and kick the tires, so to speak) at a reduced rate.  This process will be streamline by clients using our website to fill out case information, schedule consultations, and upload the information to us.

Accounting Guide to Asset Tracing book online.

A detailed chapter by chapter outline to Accounting Guide to Asset Tracing, An Accounting Guide to Establish or Refute the Existence of Separate Property in a Marital Dissolution is available online and the book can also be purchased at the Website.

The Future for Delivery of Professional Services

The launching of Assettracing.com is part of our commitment to a future of delivering professional services that are timely, efficient, and cost effective.  It's about being able to successfully work with clients and fellow professionals in Aspen, the Roaring Fork Valley, Colorado and the entire country.  Through e-mail, attached word processing and spreadsheet files, and resources on our website, we hope to work seamlessly with our clients and their legal and professional advisors.  Please visit Assettracing.com and let us know what you think.
