How We Can Help
We can assist you in advising your client about the value of the forensic evidence:
Can the scientific evidence be explained by your client’s account?
Is there another innocent explanation?
Is it reliable and fair?
Are there any weaknesses or avenues for cross-examination in court?
What does it mean? We can explain it simply without the jargon.
Should new scientific avenues be investigated?
Do you have an SFR1 report and need to consider the potential limitations of the evidence before advising your client whether to contest it?
