Expert Document Examiners

Research Associates’ forensic document examiners use only scientific methods and objective processes to outline issues, weigh evidence and explain the relevance and significance of the facts and conclusions. Most matters are examined in line with court-admissible protocol, although we also appreciate the requirement for professional graphologists.

Laboratories chosen by Research Associates are all committed to delivering high-quality results with prompt turnaround times, ensuring discretion. Where appropriate, the recognised quality standard (BS EN ISO 9001: 2008) is a requirement. All laboratories used by Research Associates are vetted for quality of systems and procedures, ensuring all scientific work and preparation of reports are carried out to consistently high, meticulous and fully controlled standards and principles.
