Forensic Case Review

FoCoSS Forensics can provide a critical technical review and an in-depth assessment of your case.  We will dissect a forensic file to determine if the proper procedures and protocols were followed, if the reported results are accurate and not overstated, if errors could have occurred, and if all possible examinations were properly conducted and/or completed.

We can also assist by reviewing transcripts from depositions, hearings and trials.
    
A complete and thorough review of all of the pertinent documents associated with a case are imperative to understand what has and has not been done in a particular case.  These documents may consist of:

  • Photographs and video from crime scene
  • Autopsy report(s)
  • Police, Emergency Services and Hospital reports
