Helping you detect, stop and prevent workplace fraud.

Welcome to Cost Advisors, Inc.—specialists in forensic accounting and fraud risk management.



Workplace fraud has far-reaching impacts. According to the most recent Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse, the typical organization loses 5% of its annual revenue to fraud. It erodes profits, increases legal costs and undermines investor confidence. Fraud can also ruin a company’s reputation.

Based in Portland, Oregon, Cost Advisors® investigates fraud for attorneys and their clients—quickly, discreetly and thoroughly. Whether you or your client face the risk of corruption, asset misappropriation or fraudulent financial statements, we can detect the fraud, identify the methods used and quantify the amount stolen.

We are experts at analyzing and interpreting financial statements and other business records, uncovering truth in the numbers. We also provide expert witness testimony and detailed reports for use in court or in settlements.

We have a proven method for managing fraud risk—one we have tested and perfected since starting our business in 1999. If you want to minimize your fraud risk or address a suspected case of fraud, read about our services or contact us today.
