1986 - Present
Self-employed Forensic Document Examiner. As a Document Examiner in private practice I conduct examinations and comparisons of handwriting, hand printing, numerals, typewriting, and mechanical impressions in order to establish if a document is genuine or forged.  I identify individuals and machines through documents. Using state of the art technical equipment, video spectral comparators (VSC) and electrostatic detection apparatus (ESDA), I analyze inks, paper, and other recording material for evidence of genuineness or non-genuineness. I use different measuring devices including typewriter grids. A stereo-microscope and other magnifiers are also part of my laboratory equipment.  

Consultant to law firms, brokerage houses, banks, insurance companies, Prosecutors' Offices, police departments, etc. 

Plaintiffs and defendants retain me in both civil and criminal matters.
