She is also a certified business appraiser and has testified in court regarding the valuation of businesses.

For business evaluators, one of the valued treatises often used is Dr. Shannon Pratt’s book — "Valuing Small Businesses and Professional Practices". Deborah Iwanyshyn worked with Dr. Pratt on this book and contributed to reviewing a section of the book.
When your legal expert also has the knowledge and expertise of a Certified Public Accountant and Business Appraiser, the complex world of family law suddenly becomes that much easier. At Iwanyshyn & Associates, we know that financial issues comprise many of today's biggest family law hurdles. So we provide CPA experience, business valuation, asset, and income identification, forensic accounting, analysis of 401(k)s and pensions — and so much more — in order to help you understand your options and determine the best possible solution for your situation.
Because our financial expertise is in-house, we can provide answers to you without the time and disconnects you might experience when third-party experts are involved. We can provide preliminary estimates of value, perform the forensic accounting necessary to determine true income for support and alimony and determine whether you need to hire a qualified expert to act as your witness at trial, thus saving you time and money dealing with a third party expert before you need one.
