FDA Examination’s Forensic Questioned Document Examiners have spent more than two decades in law enforcement and have trained hands on in live forensic examination environments with the same signature document examiners, handwriting analysts and forensic experts who train the IRS, the U.S. Department of Defense and other federal and state law enforcement entities. Our examiners have also trained with board-certified and court-qualified forgery experts, museum curators and police officers.

Our President and Lead Forensic Questioned Document Examiner is a highly decorated commanding officer with the New York Police Department (NYPD) who retired after 24 years of service with distinction. Throughout his career with the NYPD, our examiner supervised many cases related to forgeries and handwriting authentication.

FDA Examination is a truly independent third-party document examination firm. Our sole interest is to determine the legitimacy and authenticity of the documents and signatures we examine.
