HSSK is proud to welcome Karl Weisheit as a director in the professional services firm’s Dallas office. Weisheit is a certified public accountant and valuation analyst who also maintains a certification in financial forensics. In his role with HSSK, he performs economic damage calculations and oversees litigation and business consulting practices.

Throughout his career, Weisheit has concentrated his work in forensic accounting, economic damages, litigation services and business valuation. He has provided testimony as a forensic accounting expert witness on more than 60 occasions in federal and state courts, and before the American Arbitration Association.

His long career includes working in New Orleans, Louisiana, with companies such as Coopers & Lybrand, Legier & Materne and Diversified Computer Consultants. Upon relocating to Dallas, Texas, Weisheit served as a manager specializing in litigation and insurance claims consulting for Arthur Andersen and, later, as director of litigation services for Dallas’ HSNO.

Weisheit, who earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from the Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana, said he chose to work with HSSK because of the firm’s long and trusted history.

“HSSK is a respected organization, due in large part to its litigation and business valuation experience,” he explained. “It has a strong foothold in the state of Texas, and I’m really looking forward to my time with the company.”

Mike Hill Sr., who heads up HSSK’s Dallas office, said he is confident Weisheit will bring important benefits to the firm and its clients.

“Our clients come to us because they are looking for in-depth, expert assistance on matters that can determine companies’ and individuals’ futures,” he said. “Karl’s extensive firsthand experience gives him the tools it takes to carry out that work, and do it well. We are glad to have him on the team.”
