Board Certified Forensic Document Examiner

Do you have a case that requires professional analysis by a Certified Questioned Document Examiner? Perhaps you suspect that someone has signed your name to a document, or unfamiliar changes were made to important papers.

Besides identifying handwriting, a forensic document examiner, sometimes referred to as a Questioned Document Examiner (QDE), does much more. A document contains all kinds of information that could be helpful for your case. I can determine such things as whether there have been alterations made and whether the document is original. An examination can also include deciphering obliterated writing or erasures and developing indented writing that would otherwise be invisible, among many other things. My state-of-the-art laboratory is well equipped to handle a full range of non-destructive exams required. Don’t hesitate to call me any time if you have questions about my services.
