Recorded Evidence in Litigation

Digital audio recordings used as evidence are considered of high probative value to the courtroom, when authenticated. Audio recordings can be an ear-witness to crimes to assist the Trier of Fact in making a determination. For example, an audio forensic expert can enhance a recording so that the ear-witness can testify more clearly. In addition to audio enhancement, our forensic sound analysis experts offer forensic audio services including forensic audio analysis and forensic transcription.

The primary roles of audio forensic services include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • establishing the integrity of audio evidence
  • performing forensic audio enhancement of audio recordings to improve speech quality of low-level sounds
  • interpreting and documenting sonic evidence, such as identifying speakers, transcribing dialog  and reconstructing crime or accident scenes and timelines

We have been engaged in high profile forensic investigations, such as U.S. V ZimmermanMalaysia Airlines Flight 370, and Laquan McDonald. Additionally, with the help of researcher Bill Kelly, Edward Primeau assembled and restored the Air Force One recordings from the day that JFK was assassinated. As a result, these recordings were submitted into the National Archives in Washington, DC. Edward also performed video analysis for The Detroit Pistons vs The Indiana Pacers brawl in Detroit, MI in 2004.
