Kathy has been a speaker for many national and regional organizations, speaking on a wide of topic relating to her expertise in Ponzi scheme, fraud litigation, and her knowledge of current events in the Madoff case and other high profile Ponzi cases.

In connection with her book The Ponzi Book: A Legal Resource for Unraveling Ponzi Schemes, co-authored with Hon. Steven Rhodes, Kathy stays current on all of the legal decisions being published daily in Ponzi scheme cases as well as the news on the Ponzi cases pending, and breaking, throughout the world.

Kathy's over 20 years of experience as a lawyer in this area, along with her specialized knowledge of both the already developed case law and the ongoing evolvement of law in Ponzi cases, makes her the go to person for what is going on in this area. 

Kathy offers a range of keynote speeches in terms of both content and length. She can customize her speeches to be on more entertaining subjects such as absurd Ponzi behavior.  Or she can provide invaluable tips on how to avoid getting involved in a Ponzi case.  Kathy can also discuss the legal ramifications of certain behavior and the potential for liability for an investor, a bank, an attorney, an auditor, or anyone else who finds themselves wrapped up in one of these fraudulent schemes. And, of course, she can offer an combination of these presentations.

Kathy’s presentations are distinct in that they are not dry lectures on compliance and due diligence guidelines.  Rather, her speeches are sprinkled with real life stories of what has gone wrong and why, so that everyone can benefit from the mistakes of others.  The entertainment value in learning about these important issuesis also unmatched by other speakers unfamiliar with the ongoing stories and the legal decisions which are published daily in these Ponzi cases.

  "Current Events on the Ponzi Front”
