Primeau Forensics’ headquarters is located in Rochester Hills, Michigan. Our experts help their clients understand the role their media evidence plays in court as well as in their investigation. We have testified in numerous local, state and federal courts, as well as testified in cases around the world. Our founder and CEO Edward Primeau created his first DBA in 1984 and evolved his business into what is now known today as Primeau Forensics, one of the world’s most respected audio/video/image private forensic laboratories.

In short, Primeau Forensics identifies the activity, clarifies the activity forensically, and testifies on their scientific findings.

  • Identify: Establish the scope, needs, wants and concerns of the client to help guide them to an understanding of what role the evidence plays in their case.

Client Reviews
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.read more

I received credentials from two technicians, then a third person ended up doing all the work and kept in touch with me by e-mail. I never saw any proof that the work was done and they told me they found nothing. They could not tell me what was making the noise or the lights. A waste of $750.00.read more

Excellent work. Primeau took a low light camera recording of vandalism at my home and converted the video to images that we used to identity the vandals. Additionally, Primeau was able to identify characteristics of the vandals car that were used for a positive identification. Services were efficient, timely, and professionalread more

Ed and his team are great! I took in footage of my boyfriends dog being stolen and they were so willing to take every step possible to enhance the video to retrieve the information we needed. The resolution on our camera/video wasn't great (our fault, not theirs) and they were unable to get the information we needed BUT they guided me in the next steps to take. Thank you guys!!read more
