- Retaining a Properly Educated, Trained & Certified
Forensic Handwriting Examiner or Document Examiner -
People from many walks of life search out a Handwriting Expert for assistance in resolving civil, criminal and/or
other personal and/or family issues. Many of these individuals are undergoing extreme trauma, suffering potential financial,
marriage, business and/or personal losses as well as related physical and mental suffering. At this time, the general
public, attorneys and courts do not have a clue as to what it is they are becoming involved with when dealing with certain
of these alleged experts.
Most alleged experts claim to be certified document examiners.
Certain of these people also allege to be both a certified handwriting expert and document examiner. Certain of them
may be certified handwriting examiners but not a legitimate certified document examiner. Conversely, all of them allege
to be handwriting experts - although certain of them have never been properly educated, trained and certified as such. These
frauds are openly and intentionally perpetrating a fraud upon the client, their attorneys and, the courts.
People who seek help are already experiencing mental and physical stress. It is a gross act of cruelty
to intentionally misrepresent one self as being a document examiner with false and exaggerated credentials and, based upon
who best lies (under oath) and misrepresents their pseudo-credentials, may very well be instrumental in the opposing
client losing their case before the court or worse, suffer imprisonment. These pseudo-document examiners are a threat
to the safety and well being of the general public.
Therefore, before you retain an alleged or pseudo-document examiner, Ron Rice recommends that you
The length of time the alleged document examiner studied
stroke structure and what s/he studied/performed in a LICENSED and CERTIFIED state/federally APPROVED laboratory training
The number of examinations completed, and DOCUMENT the grade
average, for his/her certification.
The name and location of the LICENSED
The credentials of the instructors and, be willing and able to
provide documented and verifiable proof of all of the above.
- WARNING -
the alleged document examiner and his/her credentials, education, training and actual DE performances/requirements HAVE BEEN
properly investigated and verified; and s/he has been properly CERTIFIED as a Document Examiner by the American Academy of
Forensic Sciences or other professional organizations such as the American Board of Forensic Document Examiners, based upon
the intense investigation as stated, you may be dealing with a pseudo-document examiner a.k.a. a certified fraud.
Do not allow a pseudo-document examiner's court testimony list, testimonials and college
degree in a profession unrelated to document examination; or membership in a private organization that certifies them as pseudo-
document examiners, fool you as they have fooled their clients and the courts where they testified.
