Signature Authentication and Verification Expert
Authentication of a holographic will or a signature on a typewritten trust can become an issue for many people when they lose someone they love. Verifying whether or not a loved one's final wishes are truly theirs becomes of vital importance to the heirs and beneficiaries. Much of my work revolves around the Probate arena, and generally that means that documents in regards to a deceased person's estate are at issue and require verification or authentication to assure others that this was truly the wishes of the deceased.

The PowerPoint Presentation below is of a letter written by William R. Davie (One of our Founding Fathers, Attorney, and Builder of a College) from 1787 where he writes about the case he is in Bayard v. Singleton which set the historical precedence of Judicial Review. This PowerPoint presentation will walk you through postmarks, postage seals, paper identification, watermarks, deciphering script, handwriting verification and signature authentication. These are some of the things that a forensic document examiner, handwriting expert, or handwriting analyst may be asked to do in order to authenticate an old document.
