联合早报: “法证专家教你破案” (video) , “法证先锋”出击沉默证物发言” (article).

Forensic science can often make, break or solve a case.  But when your case goes to court, do you have a full understanding of how the evidence was collected and processed? Do you have a clear understanding of what the forensic report says and how it will impact the outcome of your case? If not, you are putting your side of the courtroom at a disadvantage before the trial even begins.

Finding the Right Solutions for You

We will help you determine whether physical evidence was processed in a proper manner at the scene and in the laboratory. We will also assist you in analysing the forensic report thoroughly in order to put forth your best line of reasoning in Court. We will help you understand that report, ascertain whether an Expert’s opinion is overstated or understated, and determine whether the findings are sufficiently supported by scientific data. We can advise on the quality of a forensic report, significance of forensic findings, as well as the interpretation and implications of negative evidence.

If you are prosecuting a case, you can depend on us to help you make the most out of the physical evidence you have collected from a scene. Whether you need help to ensure that all necessary evidence is recognised and collected properly or you need assistance with examination methods and analytical testing, you can count on our experience and knowledge to help you put together the best case possible with the physical evidence available.

If you need training for your group or organisation, we can help as well. Our forensic experts provide a variety of training courses, from basic to advanced levels, for your colleagues or organisation.  Our experts also offer complete educational options for classroom use as well.  This helps younger students to learn about forensic science and let them discuss real-world forensic issues with our experts.
