How Can You Prove a Forgery In Court?
If think your signature was forged, you have a big problem that needs an expert solution. While you might feel the judge will believe you that your signature was forged… it doesn’t work that way. The courts require a court-qualified forensic document examiner to appear as a witness.
The type of expert witness you need is called a forensic document examiner. While many people use the term “handwriting expert”, that term sometimes could include the wrong type of professional like a handwriting school teacher, graphologist, or psychologist. The only way to prove a forgery in court is to hire an experienced forensic document examiner and have him/her create a written report, court exhibits, and provide an in-person or zoom-based live testimony.
The court exhibit and the written report are two of the most important aspects of an expert witness testimony.
The handwriting expert must provide an official letter of opinion (lab report) and often compelling court exhibits that show forger’s tremors, tracing, and unexplained differences. It is very difficult to bring in an expert witness without an attorney. Pro-Se defendants often lose in courts nationwide because there is a ton of procedural processes and information non-attorneys simply don’t know. So, you should hire a good attorney and you should hire a respected and experienced forensic handwriting expert. If you call our office, we will help you decide which expert is best for your case. Often, our expert can have your case completed in under a week with a forensic report on your desk.
“Pro-Se defendants often get slaughtered in courts… we highly recommend working with our experts with your attorney.”
