Audio Video Expert Consultant Services
As licensed private investigators as well as forensic experts, we are trained and experienced in audio, video and image forensic, we have a wealth of experience to offer our consulting clients.
Our mission has always been to remain an unbiased, industry-leading expert consultation service. We assist our clients in preparing for complicated situations that involve digital recorders before they need the answers. We understand all attorneys want the good as well as the bad information well in advance in order to properly guide their case. This is both during the pre-litigation and litigation process. This allows our clients to focus on what they are good at, while allowing us to assist with interpretation of digital media evidence in and outside of the courtroom.
As a family-owned and -operated business for almost 40 years, Primeau Forensics knows the vital role digital media evidence plays in court cases. Together, our team has processed over 5,000 audio, video, and image forensic investigations and has provided litigation support services and expert testimony in over 500 cases in Local, State, and Federal Courts.
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.
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.
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.
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.

EXPERT CONSULTANTS ATTORNEYS CAN TRUST
While our team has experience testifying in court and working with high-profile clients, we also provide trustworthy forensic services. Our audio video expert consultants are certified in the field of audio video forensics. They also receive annual training to stay updated on new technology and best practices. We align with the scientific community’s best practices and stay focused on facts for an unbiased perspective.
With our technical skills and experience, we’re an excellent team for expert consulting services.
Do budgetary constraints eliminate my case from forensic consideration?
No. During Primeau Forensics’ pro bono consultation phase, our experts will discuss competitive service pricing.
What confidentiality protocols does your organization follow?
We use electronic file sharing applications using SSL/TLS 256-bit encryption and supporting forward secrecy. File names are dynamically scrambled. We encrypt all data stored on our electronic file sharing server using AES 256-bit encryption. Our file sharing process is also HIPAA compliant. We store all evidence we receive under lock and key and maintain it through chain of custody tagging. All evidence is also photographed when it arrives at our facility.
What best practices do you comply with in order to meet law enforcement standards?
Our experts and technicians follow best practices set forth by SWGDE (The Scientific Working Group on Digital Evidence) and LEVA (The Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Video Association).
Many government agencies use a net 30, 60, or 90 system. Do you require immediate payment to process an urgent investigation?
No. We only require proof that the payment is being processed to begin an investigation.
Do you have bias working primarily in the defense sector?
Absolutely not. Our experts are trained by the same agencies that train law enforcement officers. As experts of the court, our statement of duty is as follows; “I understand that my duty as an expert witness is to assist the court by providing impartial, objective, unbiased and independent opinions uninfluenced by the party who has retained me or called me as a witness”. No matter where our funding comes from, we work for the trier of fact.
