Forensic science is not just an invention of the writers of CSI. When our client’s girlfriend claimed she was helplessly tossed around the house during an argument, we advised our client to hire a forensic expert after determining that the additional cost would enable him to prevail at trial. The expert examined the marks on the wall, the shoes, the tile, and other objects the complaining witness claimed she struck during the incident. Afterward, the expert generated a report that clearly demonstrated the impossibility of the claim. In this case, forensic science was far more convincing than the ex-girlfriend’s side of the story. The case was dismissed minutes before the jury was to be selected.
