Bloodstain Pattern Analysis

The use of BPA can be beneficial when you don’t know what happened or the story just doesn’t add up. Hokey as it sounds, the blood can tell a story of what happened. The use of the spatter left behind as a result of an event involving bloodshed can help decipher what happened at the scene. Documentation is key and can improve your case. Just ask how we can help you and your case. Do you need us to come and document the crime scene for you? Do you need to know what happened? We can help!

 

DNA Analysis

DNA evidence can be the most important part of your case. Some Jurors believe it is essential to have quality DNA evidence in a case for it to be successfully proven. Some cases have it and some don’t. Why not let us take a look to see? Do you have results from a laboratory already and need help interpreting the results? We offer a second look at the evidence and the associated reports/data. This ensures that the results reported match the data collected, or that the report and conclusions they are stating really truly is supported. There can be other questions answered such as: Is anyone else there? Did the lab do the best job they could? Is there anything else that could be tested or done? What do the statistics mean?

 

Case Consultation

The results of a case can leave you with many questions about the meaning and if more testing should be done. We can answer that. We can help you determine other evidence that may help your case. Don’t leave your case saying, could we have done more. Let us consult on your case.

Do you need help in establishing a base set of questions to ask the expert in court? Do you want some specific questions for them? Do you want to know what the results say or don’t say? What are some reasonable explanations for the results? We can help.

 

Evidence Evaluation

We can re-evaluate your evidence for further possibilities. Ask us how.

 

Paternity Case Consultation
