EXPERT WITNESS TESTIMONY

OUR EXPERTS

AT PRIMEAU FORENSICS, WE BELIEVE THAT EXPERT WITNESS TESTIMONY BEGINS WITH AN IN-DEPTH FORENSIC INVESTIGATION.
It is our opinion that every forensic investigation should be processed as if it were going to trial. Our team of experts provides testimony when the investigation has a rock-solid scientific foundation. For the expert witness testimony to be successful, our experts MUST remain unbiased throughout the investigation, as well as in the courtroom.

OUR CLIENTS

OUR SERVICES

As audio, video and image recordings are being used as evidence in court, the information that accompanies that evidence must be interpreted with forensic analysis. This is done to ensure an accurate interpretation of that evidence for the Trier of Fact. Our audio, video and image forensic lab offers audio forensic services, video forensic services and image forensic services to assist our clients with their litigation. Because audio forensics, video forensics and image forensics differ greatly, we have experts that specialize in each.

Mr. Primeau and his team are incredible-and incredibly skilled. I am just a regular person who had a 30 year old VHS tape of her children and family members that was apparently ruined when I used a machine to transfer it to DVD. Devastated at the loss but unwilling to completely give up, I found Mr. Primeau's website and sent him an email. Though his inbox must be inundated with emails from important law enforcement and media people who need his forensic help, Mr. Primeau treated my problem as though it were of the utmost importance. He responded to my inquiry within hours with a thoughtful and informative email and a plan for where I could mail the tape and how he would approach the problem. Hours after Mr. Primeau received the damaged tape, he called to give me the glorious news that he would be able to salvage nearly all of it!! He communicated with me often along the way as he made me DVDs and a thumb drive. Then, Alex worked with me to get the new DVD here in time to show it to my adult children who were visiting. Mr. Primeau showed me great kindness and respect. He was able to save all but a few seconds of footage and the DVDs are of much better quality than the original tape. I will forever be grateful to him for using his amazing skills to give me back my memories!!!

As a business owner myself, I am aware of the effort it takes to assemble a team of employees that conduct their business as if it were their own, and take pride in how they represent your company to others. As an owner who feels has achieved that status myself, I immediately recognize it in others. I must say that this is not common in the workforce today. From the first contact with your company, through closeout, every one of your employees made this experience a pleasure and acted with the upmost professionalism.

We contracted with Primeau Forensics to conduct forensic analysis of video footage in a murder case. Their team was amazing to work with and provided a detailed report based on legal standards. Another important factor for me when deciding to work with Primeau was they are experts that work with law enforcement, and prosecutors as well as defense attorneys. They work on civil and criminal cases and are well reputed in this field of forensic science. I highly recommend them and will work with them on future cases.

Just want to say "Thank you." When I contacted you, I was full of worry about the case pending against my grandchild who assured me he was innocent. It was a relief when you shared your knowledge of forensic videography and your exerience with the criminal justice system. You told me that what was being held out as video evidence was not credible at all and explained why. That provided a great deal of peace of mind. In the end, the prosecutor decided to dismiss all charges because it was also his conclusion that the video "evidence" was not evidence at all. Thank you for being willing to provide your expert testimony.

I hire Primeau to work on a case for me. Not sure what made me different for the rest of their clients, but weeks went by no response. They took my money and work on my project for a few hours. I choose Ed because the company had great reviews. My advice is if you choose their service just pray you are the client they actually care about. If they feel you are someone less important then you get horrible service.

If you have an issue with wanting to determine if police body camera footage was improperly altered in any way, DO NOT retain this company. I was told by Ed Primeau that I would receive a call from him after my investigation was complete. At that time, I was very honest and made him aware that I had an attorney. He did not request my attorneys information at that time. He promised to call me with results. Later, I received an email from an employee telling me the results... that there was no editing or tampering. I said I would like to have the questions I submitted with the contract answered and I would like to speak to Ed Primeau. This employee, Audrey told me that if I wanted my questions answered or wanted any additional information I would have to give them my attorney information and they would contact him. I never ever spoke to Ed Primeau after the investigation was done.The footage is so obviously tampered with to the naked eye it’s not funny. A forensic analysis was done of this footage later and severe tampering was discovered. Covering up for a police department and providing false information to me through my lawyer is not legal. A total waste of $1500. There is widespread corruption everywhere folks.

If you need help with police body camera footage this is NOT the place to go. I paid $1500 to have footage analyzed for tampering. Mr Primeau verbally stated that it was not tampered with. There are so many areas of the footage that were tampered with. No, not caused by compression. Look at the photos and you decide.
