About the Program:

Forensic document examiners are often hired to determine if a document has been altered. Alterations are made in many ways, by persons who believe they are able to avoid detection. But they often leave traces of their misdeeds behind. This presentation offers an overview of the issues related to altered documents, including:

  • Alteration of records such as mortgage documents, medical records, computer-generated documents, and email
  • Discovery of cut-and-paste signatures
  • Examining signatures written on digital tablets
  • The future of forensic document examination

About the Speaker:

Mike Wakshull is a court-qualified forensic document examiner located in Temecula, CA. He has been qualified as an expert witness in California Superior Courts and Federal District Court, testifying in cases involving will contests, contract disputes, and others.
