Making sense of a criminal investigation can be difficult with so many kinds of information.  

Crime scene documentation.  Police reports.  Witness statements.  Laboratory results.  Understanding what the facts are in an investigation has gotten so much more complex now that there is a reliance on forensic evidence.  As a forensic scientist, I can follow the evidence from submission through reporting.  I can interpret the results to help you understand how they affect your case.  As a former Connecticut State Police detective and crime scene investigator, I can make sense of all the investigative and crime scene reports.  


Often, the individual parts of an investigation run smoothly.  The integration of all these efforts however is often fraught with problems.  Seemingly significant laboratory results can be meaningless in the context of the case.  Were the lab results fully understood and are they as probative as they seem to be?  Does the investigative work connect logically with the evidence?


As someone equally comfortable in the lab or at the scene, I can help you review the case materials to critically examine each part.  Were the right conclusions drawn?  Are there other reasonable possibilities?  Is there more than can be done forensically to understand what happened?
