Gary A. Rini, M.F.S. is a Cleveland, Ohio based independent forensic science consultant who also serves international and military clients...CSI


Understanding forensic evidence can be a daunting task. In homicide cases, it can literally mean the difference between life and death. As a litigator, you know that keeping up with the changing nature of case law is challenging enough. Often times, you are in need of a forensic expert who can assist you with the interpretation and evaluation of forensic evidence that may be associated with your case. You may need an expert witness to explain the significance, limitations and value of that evidence in easily understood terms. 


Among the types of cases we handle, are those cases known as EQUIVOCAL DEATH INVESTIGATIONS ... those deaths that occur in which there exists more than one interpretation of the fatal events.  Through a structured assessment of all the evidence and case material, a careful evaluation is made of those competing theories in an effort to arrive at the most scientifically supportable interpretation of the event.

"The identification, collection, testing, storage, handling and reporting of any piece of forensic evidence involves a number of people. Evidence can be deliberately or accidentally mishandled at any stage of this process."

"The risk of misconduct starts at the crime scene, where evidence can be planted, destroyed or mishandled. Evidence is later sent to a forensic lab or independent contractor, where it can be contaminated, poorly tested, consumed unnecessarily or mislabeled. Then, in the reporting of test results, technicians and their superiors sometimes have misrepresented their findings. DNA exonerations have even revealed instances of "drylabbing" evidence – reporting results when no test was actually performed."  - The Innocence Project*

As forensic science consultants ,we are committed to assisting you with these tasks. We will distill complex forensic evidence issues into a more palatable format through a critical case analysis and physical evidence evaluation.


A case review and evaluation involves a critical assessment of the following:


  • Compliance with Departmental CSI Policies and Procedures
  • Compliance with National CSI Standards and Practices
  • Review and Evaluation of Crime Scene Evidence
  • Review and Evaluation of Police and Laboratory Reports
  • Review and Evaluation of Police Standards and Practices
  • Review and Evaluation of Forensic Investigation Methods
  • First Responders’ Actions
  • Crime Scene Security and Contamination Issues
  • Crime Scene Investigator’s Actions
  • Crime Scene Manager's Actions
  • Crime Scene Documentation and Collection Protocols
  • Crime Scene Evidence Chain-of-Custody Issues
  • Crime Scene Evidence Examination Protocols
  • Crime Scene Investigation Performance Audits
  • Crime Scene Investigation Policies and Procedures
  • Crime Scene Reconstruction
  • Shooting Scene Reconstruction
  • Bloodstain Pattern Analysis
  • Sexual Assault Evidence Evaluation
  • Witness and Third Party’s Observations of Events
  • Case Theory Development and Trial Issues


Upon completion of the review and evaluation, a list of substantive issues will be generated to assist in the development of a trial strategy and the identification of any evidential challenges that will need to be addressed.  If desired, a report will be generated and expert testimony may be provided, if necessary.
