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.

A forensic document examiner takes into account 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.

Litigation support by a forgery expert witness could include document examination, forensic handwriting analysis, an expert report, expert opinion, and testimony in 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.
