EXPERT WITNESS SERVICES

We Understand That Your Time is Valuable When Preparing for Trial and Want to Help Alleviate Unnecessary Activity to Make Your Job Easier.

 

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.

Qualification


Nothing solidifies integrity better than a humble, third party, unbiased approach to a case. The experts at Primeau Forensics are investigators, technicians and scientists first, expert witnesses second. Our favorite part of expert witness testimony is explaining the relevance of the forensic analysis to the Trier of Fact. Lastly, our experts are all properly qualified under Federal Rule 702 for expert witness testimony.

Preparation


When it comes to testifying, the forensic expert and client attorney spend as much time necessary to prepare. Every time we testify, we bring a list of questions to review with our client attorney as a foundation for our preparation time together. Not only does this save the attorney time but it helps them to better understand how to present the facts from the forensic investigation when testifying.

Deposition


When it comes to testifying, the forensic expert and client attorney spend as much time necessary to prepare. Every time we testify, we bring a list of questions to review with our client attorney as a foundation for our preparation time together. Not only does this save the attorney time, but it helps them to better understand how to present the facts from the forensic investigation when testifying. Trial Preparation We prepare for trial first by reviewing the case, the goal of the investigation, all our work products and any forensic reports. Next, we vet these materials internally with other experts on our team before we go under oath. When complete, we have a telephone call or Skype session with our client attorney for trial prep before leaving the office. Lastly, we prep again with our client attorney a second time, face to face, before going into court.

Courtroom Testimony


When under oath, the expert witness has sworn to speak accurately and truthfully. Much like a deposition, courtroom testimony can be an intense situation for an expert. Our experts understand the process of direct and cross examination. When we prepare for testimony, we anticipate all questions that will be asked of us during direct and cross examination. We understand that our attorney clients will never ask a question that they don’t know the answer to. Again, educating the Trier of Fact is important to our experts so that the scientific analysis is understood in a simple, yet compelling manner. After 35+ years in business testifying as an audio & video forensic expert, our lead forensics expert, Edward Primeau, has worked with and learned from some of the greatest trial lawyers in the world. This experience has strengthened Primeau Forensics’ expert witness performance in the court room. We have testified in local, state and federal courts all over the United States and have extensive experience helping legal teams develop a solid trial strategy.

One great trial lawyer had this to say about our lead expert witness, Ed Primeau:
“Ed Primeau is the best at what he does! As a trial attorney, I depend on experts to educate me in the relevant field for which they are hired. My focus has always been on finding an expert who not only simplifies the subject area, but is also creative in approach. I recently had a case in which I needed an audio and video forensic expert. I found Ed. Ed is a genius and was absolutely amazing in front of the jury.”
– Attorney Nenye Uche
