Handwriting Comparison

In cases where the authorship of a piece of handwriting is unknown, or is being disputed / questioned, the role of the handwriting expert is to compare that handwriting with specimen (or reference) handwriting of an individual suspected of being the author.

In a similar vein, signatures that are disputed can be compared with specimen signatures of the individual it purports to be to establish if it is genuine or an attempted forgery.

Handwriting comparison is frequently requested in both criminal and civil cases and we regularly undertake the examination of a large number of different document types including completed application forms (loan, mortgage etc), letters, cheques, legal documents such as wills and tenancy ageements, diary entries, drug dealer “tick lists” and handwritten envelopes.
