Unfortunately, I have seen some absolutely horrid evidence Gathering, lack of retention, destruction of physical evidence by the opposing self-proclaimed “forensic” experts I have opposed.
This is not to say incorrect decisions were made as to removal and a better way could have been applied. That happens sometimes and could be a teaching experience.
Where I have seen the real problem in my view is criminal cases. This could be extremely devestating to the defendant, and how can the attorney defend against it in these sham Certified Forensic Locksmith Conclusions.
Since the attorneys on both sides know nothing about theft methodology and how forensics is applied, they are just left with the assumption the expert is using a forensic title, it must be a valid discipline. That simply is not true the way it has been applied.
