TECHNICAL CASE REVIEW

A crime scene case review involves reading and analyzing crime scene reports, lab reports, photographs, and crime scene diagrams associated with your case.  These reviews by a forensic consultant often generate questions and areas that need further investigation.  This analysis may confirm or refute statements., evidence, or hypotheses put forth by opposing counsel.  We offer case review for the following:
