So, you aren't involved in a lawsuit...
you just need to know the truth.

This page is designed to give you some insight into what is in store for you and what "level of service" you need to purchase.

If you are not going to sue someone or use the results of the "document examination" in a court of law, then you can simply hire the best analyst you can find from any state (or country.) We like to think we have some of the best at Expert Document

People have used our Personal Services in such situations as:

College student's roommate stole her credit card and charged up big bill. The parents wanted to know if the roommate or their daughter really signed the bill. (It was the roommate.)

A Nashville high school teacher was concerned about threats written on the blackboard. He suspected it was a certain troublemaker, but wasn't sure. The handwriting exam of the photographs of the writings proved that the suspect boy was not the writer. This set the teacher's mind at ease.

A woman had been concerned with the suspicious events of her brothers "suicide" over a year ago. Her mission for the "document exam" was peace of mind, not legal action. However, after consultation with Curt Baggett, her suspicions were verified. Her brother did not write the "suicide" note and therefore probably did not commit suicide. This information was taken to the local police and the they re-opened the case. Also, the Life Insurance company started their own investigation into the beneficiaries.

However, if you think you might need an expert witness in a court of law, make sure you read the legal page.

What's the process?

It takes a certain amount of our time and effort to do discover the authenticity of a document. Sometimes, it is a quick process and other times it takes hours and hours of working with enlargements, magnifying glasses, and microscopes. The good news is...if your case is of a "personal" nature and not a "legal" nature, your final cost will be less.

Why? Because for every document examining case there are two major steps. The first is the discover the authenticity of the writing. (Is it a forgery or not?) The second step is to prepare a "documentation of findings". This second step can be very time consuming and includes enlarged photographs, dozens of exhibits, notarized letters, and thoroughly explaining the process of proving to a jury that our "expert opinion" is correct.

Since we aren't going to present this evidence to a judge or jury, we can skip the second step and just explain to you our opinion via telephone.

If you think your case may end up in front of an "attorney, judge, or jury" please inform us of that at the beginning, so we can keep records of our investigation and not have to re-work the case and charge you twice.

What's the next step?

Using the power of a fax machine and possibly Federal Express, we can work with you from anywhere in the country. In many cases, we don't NEED to see the original, a fax will often do.

Now, simply choose which of the two pricing options best fits your needs.

My eleven year old daughter’s x-friend forged my daughter’s handwriting to ugly letters and accused my daughter of being the author. Your letter has made my daughter well and boy do I feel better after I mailed it to the mother of the guilty girl. Thank you for your help.

Mr. Baggett,
The forged life insurance policy (three time accident death benefit) beneficiary form forged by my daughter’s boyfriend (apparently) after she died, sure gives me renewed faith in justice. Thank you so much. I am taking your letter to the district attorney.
Thank you and God Bless You!

Mr. Baggett,
The IRS garnished my wages and took my tax refund for a debt on a forged promissory note for a student loan in Ohio when I did not ever live there. Your expert letter proving I did not sign the note may save my life. I was so desperate until I found you. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
