Defense Experts are a key part of any successful defense. We use only the best Criminal Experts in Los Angeles to secure the best results for our clients.
Defense Experts are important because they are able to do the following:
- Test, re-test and examine physical evidence. We never trust the Prosecutor’s witnesses at their word.
- Consult with the attorney about strategy by evaluating our client, witnesses, victims for any possible psychological issues that may help to establish an affirmative defense*.
- *An Affirmative Defense is one that if proven by the Defense, results in a dismissal of all charges.
- Eyewitness Identification Experts: to show how a witness may be mistaken and show that “eye-witness” testimony is some of the most consistently and statistically unreliable evidence
- DNA experts: to attack the prosecution’s DNA Evidence presented by the Prosecutor’s overworked “expert.”
- Ballistics Experts: to testify as to the use of a firearm, or the trajectory of a bullet thereby establishing placement of the shooter.
- Gun Shot Residue Experts: to expose the absence of GSR or distance from where the gun was shot.
- Gang Experts: to consult and testify as to gang intelligence or customs. It is important to remember that the Prosecutor’s gang experts usually have no formal education in behavioral sciences. Ours do.
