me for Handwriting analysis of:
Questioned documents and forgeries
I specialise in handwriting analysis to analyse questioned documents in the UK and internationally. So if you have received a malicious letter, been a victim of a fraud or hate campaign help is at hand. In fact if you have been wronged and there is handwriting involved I can most likely help you.
I am a fully qualified handwriting expert and have been in practice since 1995. I have worked with large companies, solicitors, schools, and members of the public.
Handwriting analysis would normally involve comparing documents to determine their authenticity, for example to determine if a signature is genuine on a Will or legal document. I can compare signatures, and normal upper and lower case text. It is possible to determine whether handwriting is genuine and also, if you have a suspect I can investigate whether your suspect is responsible (assuming you have a sample of his or her genuine handwriting for analysis also). Your suspect may have altered his or her writing but as handwriting is a subconscious function of the mind it is normally possible to detect some of the suspects normal features despite any attempts to hide them.
I can provide you with a report based on the documents you supply to help you with your problem. I will supply you with an expert witness report, which you can use in a court of law if you wish. When in possession of such a report many clients are able to resolve their dispute with out the need to go to court. In the case of hate mail or malicious writing when the perpetrator is presented with a report implicating them the harassment stops. In the case of malicious graffiti I can work from photographs.
Past clients include:
A small selection of types of work previously undertaken
Written Reports /opinions can normally be given in 15 working days depending on our current

on our case load. If your case is very urgent, we may be able to provide you
with a report in 48 hours, in this case the usual fee will double.

What is required for analysis?
You need a copy of the questioned document, this may be a just a signature, paper containing the questioned handwriting or a photograph of offensive graffiti. Originals are preferred but often a good copy will do. Even if you have a poor copy analysis may still be possible. Please visit our questioned document page for more information.
You will obviously have something you wish me to compare the questioned writing or signature with. In the case of forged signatures you need a specimen (confirmed) signature to compare to the questioned signature. It would be helpful if you could supply as many confirmed genuine signatures as possible to compare with the alleged forgery. These genuine / specimen signatures need ideally to have been made for purposes other than that of analysis. If you wish me to give an opinion as to whether a named individual is responsible for the forgery, I will need a specimen of their signature as well. Again, It would be helpful if you could supply as many confirmed genuine signatures of that person as possible to compare with the alleged forgery.
For handwriting comparison, you may wish me to report whether a named person is responsible for writing part of or a whole document. You may also wish me to identify an author from a group of writers. In all cases it is helpful to have as much text as possible for comparison. Again, the samples should not have been written for the purpose of analysis as this detracts from the persons natural style. Remember, if the questioned document is in lower case it is not helpful if the writing supplied for comparison is all in capitols. Please visit our questioned document page for more information.
Types of report given
You may request either a written or verbal opinion . A verbal opinion is suitable if you just need an opinion over the phone. If you need evidence to defend your case or present some sort of evidence then you will need a written opinion. A written opinion is in the form of a letter or an expert witness report , so it may be used to help the police or in a court of law if necessary. At your request I can change a verbal opinion into a written opinion upon payment of the appropriate fee. Please visit our services and fees page for more information.
Paul, Many thanks for the report. The Claimant dropped the case before the hearing date! I have passed your details on to my solicitor and will recommend you to all my friends. Once again, thank you for your professional service. Regards, Tarek Rouf
