Claire Snow has been a member of the Urbach & Avraham Litigation Support Team for more than five years. Claire’s first exposure to fraud was highly personal. She discovered that her elderly mother’s aide had been writing large checks to herself and forging her mother’s signature. This came to light as a result of Claire’s carefully scrutinizing her mom’s bank statements and noting that several items had been whited out. She immediately went to the bank, as well as to the police. It took about a year for the case to be adjudicated, but her mother’s money was fully recovered. Claire handled the entire matter herself, never even consulting with a lawyer! This took a tremendous amount of tenacity and dedication on her part. In fact, she spent so much time in the bank, that she was eventually on a first name basis with every bank employee! The confidence and experience Claire gained via this episode provided the impetus for her ultimately specializing in fraud.
Today, Claire is a Certified Fraud Examiner. She has attained special expertise at Urbach & Avraham in the reconstruction of books and records, and frequently prepares court accountings for executors, trustees and guardians.
