ACFE Member Profile


Jeffrey W. Brend, J.D., CFE, is a forensic divorce attorney who has been featured in Fortune magazine, Newsweek, and on the Sky Radio Network as one of America’s Premier Lawyers. Brend, a CFE since 2003, is also a fellow (and president-elect) of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and is affiliated with the American Society of Appraisers.


Brend has been qualified as a financial expert to value businesses and complete forensic financial investigations throughout the Chicagoland area. In addition, he is frequently appointed by the court to represent children in contested custody and visitation cases. He is past chair of the Matrimonial Law Committee for the Chicago Bar Association.


Testifying as an expert, Brend finds each of his certifications lends credibility to his knowledge and standing in court. He said that in divorce proceedings, where large sums of money and assets might be hidden, being a CFE is especially advantageous.
