In today's criminal defense environment, not engaging an expert in forensic science is a disservice to the people we serve. This is especially true in the case of DNA evidence.
However, as a practicing criminal defense attorney, I am keenly aware of the financial limitations of many of our clients and the impact those limits can have on an effective defense. Balancing the need for an expert consultation, and expert court appearances and the use of often limited resources is an ongoing challenge.
At The Ambeau Law Firm, we are committed to assisting the defense community with DNA and forensic science evidence in an effective and efficient manner.
The Reality of DNA Evidence
DNA is perceived by judges and juries as absolute truth – often without any reasonable challenge. The other forensic sciences; fingerprints, firearm matching, toxicology, blood spatter, confessions, etc., are also giving great weight in cases where an ‘expert' is brought in by the State and the evidentiary value of this information is grossly over-stated, and often without reasonable challenge.
We Level the Playing Field
The State has nearly endless resources to prosecute criminal defendants, it's time the defense community had a reasonable and affordable response to this powerful evidence. We are here to serve the defense community.
We offer a set of reasonable litigation support services here at The Ambeau Law firm;
- Initial review of DNA and/or forensic science evidence; and
- Consultation as to additional discovery requests; and
- Report generation on the reasonable challenges to the individual analyst, and reasonable challenges to the science, including Daubert/Frye hearings and motions practice; and
- Generation of effective cross-examination of the prosecution expert; and
- Trail attendance to assist with responsive cross-examination; and
- Cross-examination of the prosecution's expert and/or direct examination of the defense expert.
