What examinations do I conduct?

Typical document examinations include handwriting and signatures, determining printing processes and fonts, and identifying security features. Analyzing copies are the norm as many original documents are destroyed or unavailable. Let’s discuss your case and what will be needed.

Most requested examinations

Handwriting & Signatures

Determining if a signature or handwriting is authentic is what I do. Through careful analysis, comparison of features, and evaluating uniqueness, the basis and reasoning behind every opinion is detailed in each report.

Computer & Fonts

Evidence of manipulations, alterations, and inconsistent fonts, for examples, are thoroughly reviewed and evaluated. An exhaustive examination using industry standards is conducted for each and every case.

Printing & Security features

Determining printing processes and security features on identity documents are analyzed using a digital microscope for reviewing fine details. Examples of these types of documents include: passports, security and identity documents, and share certificates.

Career

I’m a former federal examiner,  successfully completing a full-time training program in all facets of questioned documents. 

In fulfilling my training, I became a certified examiner working on such high profile cases as the D.C. Sniper, Enron,  John Lucas Helder, and the 9/11 attacks.  Rising to the level of Supervisor, I departed the Department of Justice to open a private forensic consulting business.  Consulting as the lead expert with the United Nations, I’ve been invited to several countries to provide training: Kosovo, Tanzania, Uganda, Paraguay, Columbia, Algeria, and Bangladesh.

One of my greatest achievements was helping the federal police laboratory in Mexico City obtain international accreditation.   I will work diligently on your case and look forward to speaking with you.
