SPEAKING FOR THE EVIDENCE
Shooting reconstruction, police shootings, firearms, ballistics, and toolmarks, and are my primary fields of expertise.
As the advocate for the evidence, I will inform you of the strengths and weaknesses of the case in order for you to make educated decisions based on the facts.
Conclusions will be based on the generally accepted protocols and methodologies in the scientific community and to the standards for all prongs of Daubert/Frye Challenges.
TRAINING - EDUCATION - EXPERIENCE
I have worked literally thousands of cases from top to bottom and bring with me the experience of 25+ years as member of the Massachusetts State Police followed by my current work as an independent consultant.
The correct approach to shootings is to have specialists ply their skills from beginning to end. I have conducted criminal investigations, and as a forensic ballistician went to the shooting scene, processed it, collected the evidence, attended autopsies, and conducted all the tests in the lab based on my own knowledge of the incident, and testified in the cases.
It is illogical to believe that criminalists can master ballistics work while spending time working in other areas of forensics. You simply cannot be a general contractor and master a single trade.
My forensic career is dedicated to forensic ballistics; not paint, hairs, fibers, or other areas. I do not work as a jack of all trades.
