How Our Lawyers Embrace Forensic Science to Help You Win Your Case

Forensic science is an invaluable tool when it comes to defending a person from a crime they did not commit. The Boston forensic science lawyers of The Baez Law Firm are adept at employing forensic science to defend the rights of our clients and to ensure that they are not punished because of a court’s mistakes or a law enforcement agency’s bias. Our law firm does its own forensic testing for two reasons: it is not always wise to trust the police or the prosecution’s evidence, and we are often simply better at forensics than the prosecution.

Boston Forensic Science

Forensic science has been used for thousands of years to decipher murders and other criminal acts. For example, analyzing a foot or boot print in mud or collecting a torn piece of cloth from a crime scene are examples of forensic science methods that have been around for a long time. Modern techniques have been developed and improved over the last century, such as fingerprinting, which was first discovered in 1892. While forensic science has been used to put millions of people behind bars, and set many people free as well, it is not an infallible field of work. In fact, there is actually little science that goes on in forensic science. Most forensic science laboratories are underfunded and the work they perform would not meet the minimal standards for real scientific work, according to Jennifer L. Mnookin, Vice Dean and Professor of Law at the University of California Los Angeles Law School. Moreover, much of forensic science is open to the interpretation of forensic experts. This means that even if a forensic evidence is found against you and used in court, it may not hold up. We perform our own forensic work to ensure the highest quality of evidence.

There are Many Types Forensic Evidence

The following is a partial list of different types of forensic evidence that we use to help prove our client’s innocence, as well as the types of evidence that the prosecution uses that we must disprove:

  • DNA profiling from hair, blood and other body fluids, and skin;
  • Fingerprints;
  • Fibers;
  • Glass and broken objects;
  • Bullet striations;
  • Gunshot residue;
  • Point of origin (of fired bullet);
  • Drug analysis;
  • Bite Marks;
  • Tire tracks;
  • Shoe prints;
  • Barefoot prints; and
  • Handwriting.

Unlike other types of science, which deals in probability, forensic science deals in certainty. Forensic scientists employed by the state often get on the stand and claim that the evidence points in the favor of the prosecution and that there is 100 percent certainty that the defendant is guilty of the crime. Many jurors will be swayed by seemingly technical and infallible talk, and their minds could be made up simply based on a piece of evidence that should not hold any weight at all, such as handwriting. We do not want to leave something so important, which is left to interpretation, in the hands of the prosecution. We believe that it is our duty to perform quality forensic testing and to provide our own experts to interpret what the evidence does or does not say.
