    Background: Do you have a forged or altered document? I can promptly and accurately solve your problem. My years of experience can solve cases of forgery, altered numbers, record alteration, graffiti, anonymous writings and poison pen letters. As a Certified Document Examiner I examine and identify signatures, hand printing, handwriting, initials, and numbers. I also study documents made by computer printers, typewriters, and markings on walls, glass, wood or even automobiles.

    I am a forensic document examiner and a certified forensic physician—uniquely combining two scientific disciplines that each help people in need. My special interest is altered medical records, but I examine all types of documents for authentication or alteration. I have ongoing research studies correlating peculiarities in handwriting and health issues. I am the only private document examiner in West Central Texas, but I am available for cases anywhere in the world. If you are a law firm, I'll be glad to fax you a copy of my Curriculum Vitae so you can have it on file next time a forgery case comes across your desk.

    Occasionally, the document examiner encounters a signature or writing that is believed to be a forgery but in reality was written by a blind or visually impaired individual. There are various features of blind writing that could initially be mistaken for a forgery, so it is understandable that this could occur.

    Before the fountain pen began to be widely used in the late 1800s, writing was mainly done at a desk with a steel nib pen that constantly had to be dipped into an inkwell. The fountain pen, which was designed to carry its own ink supply, brought greater convenience and portability to the writing process.
