DNA Consultant

As a DNA consultant for a wide range of criminal trials, I successfully translate the complex realities of DNA testing and evidentiary impact into usable solutions for your client. I was trial attorney for one of the first short tandem repeat (STR) DNA cases in Missouri and have an thorough understanding of all aspects of DNA testing, including Mitochondrial, STR and y-STR as well as forensic lab policies and procedures.

My DNA knowledge and skills extend from pre-trial, discovery and evidence analysis through trial strategy and expert witness cross-examination. I can help your client to understand and confront the Government’s DNA evidence in a manner that fits with your theory of the case. I can assist you and your client in making rational and cost-effective decisions about when to re-test and when to hire your own expert.
