EXPERT CONSULTANT SERVICES

We offer a range of forensic support as audio video expert consultants

REBUTTAL EXPERT REPORTS

In many civil cases, our experts are retained to review opposing expert reports and determine the accuracy of their opinions. Since audio, video, and image evidence is being used frequently in pre-litigation and litigation, the opinions offered about that evidence can make or break a case. We provide rebuttal expert review and reports to assist in the determination of the accuracy of expert opinions and qualifications.

DEPOSITION QUESTIONS

Our team is well-versed in testifying as an expert witness. We know what questions to ask because we have been asked the important questions. These include questions about the science applied, accuracy of the opinions, qualifications and more. We work alongside attorneys to determine the best deposition questions related to the enhanced evidence and prepare our answers for when we present to the jury.

PRE-LITIGATION SUPPORT

In many cases, audio-video and image evidence needs to be collected properly to ensure accurate opinions are offered. Our team of technicians and experts can assist in the collection of fragile digital evidence to assist you before litigation even begins.

LITIGATION SUPPORT

Audio, video, and image evidence can be difficult to make determinations from, let alone play in litigation. Our team of technicians and experts can assist your case by helping you determine the accuracy of the audio or visual streams if any mishandling of evidence has taken place or make identifications. Determination of fact vs fiction is crucial during litigation.

COURTROOM EXHIBIT PREPARATION

Our forensic approaches can reveal crucial facts to a case, and an expert should help present these facts. With courtroom exhibit preparation, you can work through how to explain the evidence during the trial and display it to the jury. For evidence such as video footage, this may involve setting you up with the right technology to show it.
