RULES OF EVIDENCE
The Frye standard is a general acceptance test to determine the admissibility of scientific evidence. Expert opinion based upon a scientific technique is admissible only where the technique is generally accepted as reliable in the relevant scientific community.
On December 1st, 2000, the Daubert trilogy was codified into Rule 702's "Testimony by Experts":
If scientific, technical, or other specialized knowledge will assist the trier of fact to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue, a witness qualified as an expert by knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education, may testify thereto in the form of an opinion or otherwise, if (1) the testimony is based upon sufficient facts or data, (2) the testimony is the product of reliable principles and methods, and (3) the witness has applied the principles and methods reliably to the facts of the case.
On December 1st, 2017, Federal Rule 902(14) goes into effect:
Electronically copied data, if authenticated by a process of digital identification as shown by a certification of a qualified person, shall be deemed as Self-Authenticating evidence and admitted without extrinsic evidence of authenticity. Otherwise, a certification in the form of a written affidavit by a qualified person, capable of being a witness at trial, shall be required to establish authenticity.
We have processed evidence in over a thousand cases, and our lab's exhibits are frequently cited in courtrooms, industry lectures, and international media.
Our reports are extremely detailed and our methods follow established peer-reviewed industry best practices.
We have passed every evidentiary challenge and our testimony
strategy is clear and concise. My prior depositions & testimony
are listed on my CV.
Since other enhancement companies resell our work as their
own, we rarely know the names or details of the cases that we service. If we do
learn the case parties, we will not disclose that
information without a court order or our client's explicit permission.
