Our Firm

Artifice Forensic Financial Services, LLC (AFFS) is a boutique consulting firm specializing in independent corporate monitoring, corporate compliance & ethics, forensic accounting, and financial fraud examinations.  AFFS is partially owned by PBMares, a Virginia-based CPA firm of nearly 200  accountants, most of whom are CPAs, with eight offices throughout Virginia.  AFFS also has affiliations with other CPA and Forensic Accounting firms nationally and internationally, allowing us to immediately respond to your needs with the superior quality of service, expertise, responsiveness, coverage and professional credibility that you would expect from the large consulting firms, but at rates that make economic sense and won't cause you or your clients additional hardship.

Artifice was specifically designed and created in response to what clients and prospective clients told us they most expected and sought from a professional services provider in our practice areas.

You are our top priority and we structured our business to best serve yours.

But our craziness and passion about our work, combined with our extensive corporate monitoring & financial fraud investigative experience and talented professional accounting and audit resources, translates into an insightful, astute, knowledgeable and creative professional corporate monitoring, forensic accounting, fraud examination and fraud prevention services provider and a formidable resource for those in need.  Incorporate that level of service with our boutique-like business structure and our value proposition is evident and favorable, particularly given current economic conditions.
