AZ Forensic Associates may become involved at various points in the legal process. If involved at the beginning, on site analysis, evidence collection, photographic documentation of the scene and evidence can be provided.

If you find that you are in need of an expert later in the process, or if you have a cold case, cases may also be evaluated by examining photographs of the scene and autopsy reports (autopsy, crime lab, EMS/first responder, police, etc.), hospital records and statements. If in the appellate process, transcripts will need to be reviewed as well. Please contact us to discuss your specific case.
