Call me: 609-203-3666 - Banking Expert Witness

James J. Kreig has served for many years as an banking expert witness and consulting attorney in numerous forged and counterfeit check cases, banking and payment systems cases and bank regulatory compliance cases.

With over 48 years of experience as a bank examiner, bank auditor and in-house attorney for banks, he can provide both expert witness and consulting attorney services for those involved in litigation both for and against banks. His subject matter expertise includes:

With respect to checks, he has testified in numerous crooked bookkeeper, forged endorsement, check fraud and check processing cases. He has extensive knowledge of the Articles 3 and 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code and the federal banking regulations governing checks and check processing contained in Federal Reserve Regulations J and CC.

With respect to wire transfer and ACH fraud, the last 20 years has seen a dramatic increase in the number of bank customers downloading malware or becoming victims of phishing efforts. This has led to wrongdoers being able to initiate fraudulent wire transfers or fraudulent ACH credit entries from the online banking accounts of their victims. I can provide expert insight and advice to determine if the bank used a commercially reasonable security procedure to verify these unauthorized payment orders.

Mr. Kreig has qualified as an expert witness in banking matters many times in both state and federal courts. He is located in Florida (near Tampa) and will travel to other states around the country for deposition and/or trial testimony.
