Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. If you are in need of forensic science services that we do not provide, Forensic Consulting Service maintains a network with examiners in many other forensic disciplines (which may be related to investigations being conducted). These include Audio/Voice Analysis, Cell Phone and Computer Examination, DNA Laboratories, Firearms/Ballistics Examination, Forensic Toxicology Laboratories, Ink Analysts - capable of "dating" the written or printed material on a document, and Video/Image Analysis. WE DO NOT receive any referral fees for this service (this practice is prohibited by our professional codes of ethics) and we would be happy to refer you to competent examiners in their respective disciplines.
