Mike Wakshull partners with clients in civil and criminal cases in the United States, Canada, and Hong Kong requiring authentication of handwritten and computer-generated documents. As a court-qualified document examiner, he dissects the evidence, helping clients learn the strength of their case.
Working with Wakshull is different:
* He applies his scientific and engineering training to examine questioned documents and produce verifiable arguments. Although courts require a verifiable, scientific approach for expert witness testimony, not all examiners use this type of approach. * He is meticulous about customer service and client communications. * He employs internet video technology to communicate with clients worldwide. * He has built a well-equipped laboratory and a large forensic reference library to enhance his courtroom testimony. * As a university instructor and member of National Speakers Association, Wakshull is skilled at explaining complex evidence with clear exhibits, easy-to-understand language and descriptive pictures. His courtroom approach teaches and engages all trial participants - judge, jury and attorneys. * He uses generally-accepted practices such as SWGDOC, SAFE, and ASTM standards.
Wakshull is a frequent speaker at local and international forensics conferences and attorney conferences. He is a published author of two books about document examination. He has developed and teaches a number of California Bar approved MCLE courses.
