WHO WE ARE

Forensic Defense Strategies (FDS) offers criminal defense attorneys critical assistance in understanding and challenging the forensic evidence in their cases. Drawing from decades of experience in confronting some of the most difficult areas of forensic evidence - DNA, Serology, Fingerprints, Firearm Toolmarks, Blood Spatter, Hair and Fiber, Canine Detection - FDS provides individual case-by-case analysis to their clients.



HOW WE CAN HELP

FDS can assist you in deciding what proper direction to take in your case, along with developing areas essential for you to effectively challenge the evidence through cross-examination and in presenting your arguments. Whether it is through advice on motions to judges or presenting issues that appeal to juries, FDS will provide you the expert strategic advice you need.


In the area of DNA evidence, FDS can provide an independent review of the government's results using not only their understanding and experience, but also by using the very same proprietary software used by most government laboratories to analyze DNA evidence.
In other forensic areas, they can use their vast knowledge of the individual forensic disciplines and the most current understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each.
