LITIGATION SUPPORT

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. 

 

Several high-profile cases we have been retained for include; US V George Zimmerman, restoration of the Air Force One audio recordings from the day of JFK’s assassination, and the Mayor Rob Ford scandal in Toronto, Ontario.  

 

Our mission has always been to offer unbiased, industry-leading litigation support services to our clients while helping interpret the relevance of our findings to the evidence. 

POPULAR FORENSIC SERVICES FOR LITIGATION:

We offer a range of forensic support for attorneys to create admissible evidence in court.

Audio Enhancement of 911 Calls

911 calls often reveal pertinent information during civil and criminal legal proceedings. With our forensic audio services, we can remove distracting background noises and improve the speakers' clarity. Information will be easier to understand and more accurate when you trust our forensic audio litigation support.

SPEAKER VERIFICATION

When you have audio with an unidentified speaker, verifying the voice can make a significant difference in a case. Our speaker verification services start with us creating an exemplar recording of a suspect. We use various technology and forensic techniques to find similarities between these voices. Once we've gathered enough evidence, we can confirm or deny a speaker's identity based on a percentage of certainty.

ESTABLISH CHAIN OF CUSTODY

The chain of custody for a piece of evidence describes who had the evidence and how they handled it. When we establish a chain of custody, we can determine if someone may have tampered with the evidence and affected the accuracy of the information presented.

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.

OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING ENHANCEMENT SERVICES

Officer-involved shootings may happen incredibly fast and leave you with low-quality footage. Our video enhancement services can help you improve the pixel clarity, reduce blur and limit shakiness to make the course of events clearer to viewers. We can also enhance audio if the footage includes critical dialogue.

BODY CAMERA IMAGE STABLIZATION

Body cameras are inherently unstable, especially during active scenes. If you have body cam footage with vital evidence, we can stabilize the clip for the best clarity and communication. We may also take and enhance stills from video footage to prove events and confirm circumstances.

DEPOSITION QUESTIONS

Our team is well-versed in testifying in court. Once we provide our services, we can use our knowledge during litigation as expert witnesses. 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.

No matter where our funding comes from, we work for the trier of fact.
