Signature verification expert witnesses may be utilized for various civil cases, as signed documents are often at the center of complex litigation. Signature verification expert consulting may provide insight into cases requiring document examination, as well as ink analysis, altered documents, handwriting analysis, and other possible details found within legal documents and other important texts.
Because so many contractual agreements are agreed upon between parties via signature, signature verification expert witnesses are highly relevant to many cases involving various contract disputes. Questioned documents at the center of a court case, for instance, may prove to be fraudulent documents or forgeries based on the findings of a signature verification expert. These skills may also be applied to signature and handwriting identification of historical documents, documents involved with real estate transactions, and issues with counterfeiting.
Signature verification expert witnesses may also be called upon to provide an expert opinion regarding the validity of threatening documents, such as threatening letters or other such writings, which can be used to identify criminal activity by matching an individual with the handwriting on the document question. Like forensic photography, blood identification, or other physical indicators of a person’s physical presence, signature verification can be used to verify an individual’s involvement with a crime.
