Handwriting Expert Witnesses
Handwriting expert witness candidates typically have many years of experience, and may be certified forensic document examiners. A chosen expert may be associated with an industry organization 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 trained handwriting analyst can discriminate between natural variations in a handwriting examination, and highlight differences in the handwriting sample that would indicate a different writer. A forensic document examiner takes into account multiple features within a questioned writing sample. Litigation support by a handwriting expert witness could include document analysis, handwriting analysis, an expert report, expert opinion, and expert testimony in the courtroom. In addition, law firms may seek a forensic document examination expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
