Most people do not know what to do if they suspect a forgery or receive some anonymous note. Fortunately it is usually the one and only case like that they have had to deal with. Most cases do not end up going to court due to her thorough work. People are usually surprised by how inexpensive it can be to have their case reviewed and the peace of mind that comes with it. Her reports can often help a case to settle quickly, without the added expense of a courtroom trial. However if you do need to go to court, she has qualified as an expert witness in numerous state and federal courts. Her presentations are clear and convincing.
As a handwriting expert she deals with questions of signature forgery or verification, insurance fraud, corporate fraud, disguised writing, anonymous notes, threatening letters, graffiti, forged checks, deeds, contracts, wills, sequential logged writing, and intersecting lines just to name a few. As a document examiner she looks at questions of altered documents. Sometimes this includes cut and paste signatures, erased or obliterated writing, scanned signatures, or it might be a replaced page on a document. It might also involve a questioned typewriter, computer printer questions, scanned signatures or faxed documents.
Document and handwriting examination is a difficult field and should be handled by a well-trained professional. For instance, a signature might not look anything like the person's normal signature, but a professional handwriting analyst can tell that person was attempting to disguise his or her signature. Ms. Abbey is a member of the National Association of Document Examiners, and the ASTM. She serves as Treasurer for NADE on the executive board.
