If you listen to this podcast or spend any time around me, you know that I am an enthusiastic member of ProVisors, a nationwide business networking group that is home to some great lawyers, accountants, financial planners, bankers, and many other trusted advisors. The thing I love most about the group is that I get to meet great professionals from all over the country.  One of those individuals who I met early on was Frank Rudewicz

If you meet Frank, it won’t take you long to like him. He is the consummate professional who truly enjoys what he does. He is clearly invested in the success of those around him. And from his days at the FBI, he has great stories.

I invited Frank on the show because Frank has deep experience doing investigations.  Since some of my audience are lawyers looking for alternatives to the traditional practice of law, I thought it would be great to have Frank on as a guest.

In this episode, Frank and I talk about how he got to where he is today. He shares some thoughts about why lawyers make great investigators and offers some tips for anyone thinking about making a transition.

Frank Rudewicz specializes in forensics and litigation support at the accounting firm CliftonLarsonAllen.  He has more than 30 years of experience conducting domestic and international investigations for fraud, forensic accounting, asset tracing and other litigation-related matters. He has appeared on NBC Dateline and Forensic Files for his investigative work.

Frank is experienced in expert witness testimony and is the co-author of a book on Forensic Accounting and Fraud Investigation for Non-Experts.  Prior to joining CLA, , Frank served as Principal, Counsel and Partner-in-Charge of Forensic, Litigation and Valuation Services for several national accounting firms and Senior Managing Director and Counsel for an international risk consulting and investigative firm, as well as Vice President of a Super Regional Financial Institution. Earlier in his career, Frank spent 14 years in law enforcement with the Hartford Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
