What exactly is forensic signature examination? Is the comparison of signatures really a science? How is it done? How can one become trained in this discipline? What are the parameters which guide the expert in reaching an opinion? What effects do health, drugs, or alcohol have on signature skills? Can a signature include obvious differences and still be genuine? At what point do differences become significant? How does an attorney work with an expert in this field? What documents and materials will be needed? How can a document expert explain the details of this work to a jury? How does an attorney effectively cross examine a document expert? FORENSIC SIGNATURE EXAMINATION answers these questions. The reader will learn how the scientific method is applied to signature examination, how to define the parameters which guide decision making, and how forgeries can be recognized. Students will find this to be a sensible approach to the study of signature examination. Document examiners will find a method for explaining their work to clients and to the court. Attorneys will find that they can take the magic out of a signature examination so their own witness is more credible - or an opposing witness held to a more effective cross-examination. For attorneys, document examiners, and students, here is a straightforward, systematic explanation of why we can rely on signatures as a means of identification and how the habits of pen rhythm and character design can be analyzed.
