Client Congrats: Philadelphia CPA Terry Silver of Citrin Cooperman Earns Prestigious Industry Credential

Every now and then The PR Lawyer shares special news and accomplishments about our clients and friends. This week The PR Lawyer would like to give Philadelphia CPA and Certified Valuation Analyst, Terry Silver, of the accounting, tax and business consulting firm Citrin Cooperman & Company, LLP a little pat on the back!

Silver has earned the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) credential in recognition of his extensive financial forensic accounting expertise. The CFF designation compliments Silver’s business valuation and accountant certifications.

Silver is a Citrin Cooperman partner with more than 33 years of experience as an accountant and auditor and he focuses his practice on business valuation and financial forensic services, expert testimony and matrimonial actions. Silver also has an extensive background in business and individual tax matters. What is really impressive, is that the AICPA’s CFF designation is only granted to members in good standing who possess significant business experience in the area of financial forensics and have completed a minimum of 75 hours of focused continuing education. According to the AICPA, the CFF credential combines specialized financial forensic accounting expertise with the core knowledge and skills that make CPAs among the most sought-after business advisers.

“Financial forensic accounting affects many aspects of our clients’ businesses and lives, with applications ranging from computer forensics and economic damages to family law and business valuations,” said Silver. “As an accountant and auditor devoting a significant portion of my practice to financial forensics, I am pleased that the AICPA has developed this credential and am honored to have earned this certification.”

In addition to providing a variety of individuals and privately held businesses with financial forensic accounting services, Silver has a strong audit, accounting and business consulting background in diverse industries including manufacturing, construction contracting and medical practices. He was a partner in the Philadelphia firm of Yampolsky, Mandeloff, Silver & Ryan prior to its merger with Citrin Cooperman in 2007. He is a member of the AICPA, the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts. Silver holds a bachelor of arts from LaSalle University.

“Terry’s CFF designation is a reflection of the admirable expertise and dedication he brings to every facet of his practice,” stated Philadelphia Citrin Cooperman managing partner, Mark Carrow. “His CFF credential is also indicative of the depth of resources we offer to our clients in providing a full range of accounting, tax, consulting, business valuation and financial forensic services to clients throughout the Philadelphia region.”
