The discovery and analysis of digital evidence is a growing legal necessity. More data resides in digital environments than most people realize, and this data is admissible when recovered under forensically sound conditions.
Use of force
Use of force doctrines maintain an ethical standard that the law is obliged to uphold. These standards have imperfect definitions, and we are prepared to advise on circumstances where police actions are brought into question.
Bloodstain pattern analysis
Often the patterns found within a crime scene or on items of evidence can provide additional details as to the sequence of events as they happened. Additionally, those stains and patterns may provide information to confirm or contradict recorded statements. The analysis of the bloodstains can include reconstructing the likely order of events as they unfolded in the scene, placing individuals where they may have been during those events, and determining a minimum number of individuals involved.
