1: Forensic Science – How to Build Your Expert Witness Curriculum Vitae (C/V)

Friday, August 29th, 2014

1: Forensic Science - How to Build Your Expert Witness Curriculum Vitae (C/V)My name is Ed Primeau and I am an audio video forensic expert. I develop or process audio and video evidence to better hear and see the events as they occurred in the audio or video recording. I also authenticate audio and video evidence to learn if the evidence presented is real and can be used in court. In the following article I will share my thoughts on how to honor forensic science and build your expert witness curriculum vitae.

In this first episode of ‘Blindspot’, I want to cover an overview of the qualifications of a forensic expert. If you are thinking of a career as a forensic expert, you better begin with a solid foundation in your area of expertise. This is on the job experience, activity both behind a desk and in the field. Your forensic career will grow as your work experience grows. To document this experience, as forensic experts we create what is referred to as a curriculum vitae which is a Latin word meaning ‘the course of life’ in other words, things that have happened in your life. A C/V is a document that lists your education, work experience, articles published and reviewed by your peers as well as continuing education and associates you belong to. Eventually your C/V will also list the legal cases you have word on and successfully completed.

So where do you begin with creating your C/V?

As a forensic expert, your C/V is the most important and most used document you will ever have as a forensic expert. This is the document that will allow everyone who reads it an understanding of your education and experience as well as life accomplishments as a forensic expert. The reader will know your experience and how it relates to the work you are doing or have already completed. Your C/V is also very important when qualifying you testify in court. Your C/V is also an integrity foundation. Forensic experts must have integrity.

In this weeks podcast, listen in with Audio & Video Forensic Expert Ed Primeau as he talks about the importance of a C/V and it’s role in your professional career as a forensic expert.

Client Reviews
As a business owner myself, I am aware of the effort it takes to assemble a team of employees that conduct their business as if it were their own, and take pride in how they represent your company to others. As an owner who feels has achieved that status myself, I immediately recognize it in others. I must say that this is not common in the workforce today. From the first contact with your company, through closeout, every one of your employees made this experience a pleasure and acted with the upmost professionalism.read more

I received credentials from two technicians, then a third person ended up doing all the work and kept in touch with me by e-mail. I never saw any proof that the work was done and they told me they found nothing. They could not tell me what was making the noise or the lights. A waste of $750.00.read more

Excellent work. Primeau took a low light camera recording of vandalism at my home and converted the video to images that we used to identity the vandals. Additionally, Primeau was able to identify characteristics of the vandals car that were used for a positive identification. Services were efficient, timely, and professionalread more

Ed and his team are great! I took in footage of my boyfriends dog being stolen and they were so willing to take every step possible to enhance the video to retrieve the information we needed. The resolution on our camera/video wasn't great (our fault, not theirs) and they were unable to get the information we needed BUT they guided me in the next steps to take. Thank you guys!!read more
