Forgery Expert Witnesses
What is a forgery expert witness?
Forgery expert witness candidates may be members of industry organizations such as the American Board of Forensic Document Examiners (ABFDE), the American Society of Questioned Document Examiners (ASQDE), the American Academy of Forensic Science, and/or the International Association for Identification. A forgery expert witness must not only have the appropriate substantive expertise but should also possess the ability to explain evidence to lay people, including judge and jury.
What types of cases require a forgery expert witness?
A forensic document examiner considers multiple features within a questioned writing sample. A trained analyst can discriminate between natural variations in a handwriting examination and highlight differences in the handwriting sample that would indicate a different writer.
Whether it’s for a civil or criminal case, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn an expert witness search that can support handwriting identification and forgery matters, on behalf of a plaintiff or defendant.
What litigation support work might a forgery expert witness be expected to perform?
Litigation support by a forgery expert witness could include document examinations, forensic handwriting analyses, research and authoring expert reports, providing expert opinions, and testimony in depositions and at court. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a forensic handwriting expert with prior expert testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a forensic document examination subject matter expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn a search for a forgery expert witness around quickly, providing the right balance of expertise and testimony experience.
