Have you ever had a case where the will, trust, deed, or other probate document was challenged as to its authenticity? How did you handle the situation? Did you retain a forensic document examiner to partner with you on the case?
This interactive presentation by Mike Wakshull, forensic document examiner, offers insight into probate cases that have required the assistance of a forensic document examiner to determine the authenticity of the documents in question. All examples are from Mike’s case work.
Mike Wakshull is a court-qualified forensic document examiner located in Temecula, CA. He partners with attorney clients to deliver results that often lead to early settlements in favor of the counsel who retained him. When cases go to trial, he presents them in jury-speak rather than techno-geek to educate the triers of fact. He applies his technical and science training to present a science-based approach to his opinions—a court requirement.
