Sacramento Business Journal: Mastagni Law Brings in Muscle to Audit Cities' and Counties' Books

The Sacramento Business Journal reports Mastagni Law has teamed up with forensic accountants to audit the books of cities and counties claiming financial problems.  The article profiles Shayleen O. Mastagni who came in-house at the firm after working as a Senior Vice President at Perry-Smith Accounting and Bridget Sanders, Senior Manager at the accounting firm Wallace Valuation Advisors. According to Shayleen Mastagni,  "The question is are you going broke or blowing smoke with financial obligations not due for 30 years?"  To answer that question, both women scrutinize the books to see if agencies are hiding money or facing legitimate financial problems.
