A forensic expert witness should exemplify two qualities: 1) the capacity to understand specialist facts, issues and techniques, and 2) the ability to explain these in a straight-forward yet compelling manner. Analysts from AFENTIS FORENSICS excel in both qualities.
Our forensic expert witness personnel are industry spceialists. Forensic capability and Best Practice continues to evolve at lightning pace and as such our experts undertake regular training and professional development to ensure that we stay ahead of investigation developments and emerging trends.
Our forensic expert witness opinions are balanced, thorough, clear and easy to understand – in a word, they are persuasive. Whether a matter is privately funded or supported via Legal Aid, we handle cross-examination in court with poise because we understand the issues and we have the experience and expertise to backup what we say.
Forensic Expert Witness Reports and Testimony
Our personnel are specialists drawn from a range of industries. Forensic expert witness personnel experienced in computer forensics, e-Discovery / Litigation support, telecommunications and mobile device examinations, Cell Site Analysis (CSA), DNA profiling, drugs/chemical analysis, firearms and gunshot residue studies, handwriting assessments, and fingerprint examinations.
We understand how to turn complex exhibits into evidence that can withstand the scrutiny of a court of law. With our extensive experience in the criminal and civil arena, we understand the legal process and we appreciate what legal teams need. At the same time, we fiercely protect our credibility, which is good for the case of the clients whose solicitors instruct us. We are not afraid to tell the client and their advocates/barristers where their case is weak, unsupported, or simply lacking in merit. However, where there is merit and good cause in a client’s case, we can deliver a riveting and convincing forensic expert witness opinion that allows the court and jury to make the right decision with confidence.
The synergy between our incisive expert opinions and the attorneys’ legal strategies typically results in larger and speedier settlements, as well as more favourable resolutions and judgments in trial situations.
