It is with great pleasure that I recommend Mr. Nathaniel McKenzie as a forensic accountant, Business Valuation Expert, and Accounting expert. I have known Nathaniel for the past 13 years on a personal and professional basis. I first met Nat when he was twenty-eight years old as a karate instructor and a member of the Chord debate team. Over the years, I have watched him develop as a professional and a person. I am very proud of what he has accomplished. On a professional basis, I have hired Nat on numerous occasions to perform work for clients and have always been impressed with his financial knowledge and his professional conduct. Nathaniel has always conducted himself with the highest degree of integrity and professionalism.
I also had the distinct pleasure of facing Nathaniel in the court room on a case that ended up going to the Supreme Court of Florida. During the deposition and cross examination, for over five hours, Nathaniel handled the questions with extreme confidence, and he knew his material very well. It is my opinion that his testimony was the most critical element in this case. Since then, I have hired Nat for all of my financial expert work, with the highest confidence that he would do a great job for my clients. I have never been disappointed.
Our firm has used Nathaniel for a broad array of services. We have hired him as a forensic accountant, as a business valuation expert, an accounting expert, an expert in tax, and as an expert in financial planning. Nathaniel has a very broad and deep knowledge of complex financial matters, as testified to by his six professional designations. He is a great resource to have available on any case dealing with financial issues.

I highly recommend Nathaniel McKenzie as a forensic accountant and financial expert. I first met Nathaniel in February of 2009 at the Broward County Bar Continuing Legal Education seminar. Nathaniel did a presentation on Forensic accounting techniques for family and civil court. I was impressed with his speaking abilities and knowledge of the subject.
I recently hired Nathaniel on a very difficult case involving a business dispute between two partners involving a small restaurant. Our client was inactive in the operation of the business and had left it under the control of the other party. On paper the business was not profitable, making it very hard to prove our client's claim that he should get paid for his half of the business. Nathaniel was able to assist us in formulating the subpoenas to get all the information needed. Then he did a complete direct forensic examination of the business which did not uncover any discrepancies between the bank records, financial statement and tax returns. However; Nathaniel also performed several indirect procedures and determined that the one partner left in control of the business was most likely not reporting a significant amount of the cash sales of the company, and using this cash to pay employee and personal expenses, all to the detriment of our client's interest. Within a week of the opposing attorney deposing Nathaniel and receiving his affidavit, the case was settled favorably for our client. I could not have accomplished such a favorable result for my client without Nathaniel's dedication and expertise. He and his staff were a pleasure to work with.
