The American Institute of CPAs has named Sandra Johnigan the recipient of its 2004 Forensic & Litigation Services Volunteer of the Year Award.

Johnigan, who operates her own litigation consulting and forensic investigation practice in Dallas, earned the award both for her contributions to the field and for her service to the institute, the AICPA said.

"Sandy has been an enthusiastic advocate of forensic and litigation services as a practice discipline for CPAs," said Anat Kendal, AICPA director of financial planning and business valuation/forensic and litigation services.  "As a volunteer member of institute committees and task forces, she has helped educate many CPAs about this important area."

Johnigan began her career at Arthur Young & Co., a predecessor firm of Ernst & Young. As the owner of her own firm since 1990, she has provided expert testimony and conducted case management for law firms. She has also performed forensic investigations for the U.S. Department of Justice.

Johnigan is completing a three-year term as chair of the AICPA Forensic & Litigation Services Committee and is currently a member of the institute's Business Valuation and Forensic & Litigation Executive Committee. She is a new member of the AICPA Council and is a past chair of the AICPA Savings and Loan Committee and the AICPA National Conference on Advanced Litigation Services.
