3D Forensic, Inc. is a forensic technology firm offering forensic analysis, expert witness testimony and courtroom animation. We work with all legal teams to capture pertinent data, provide unbiased analysis, and visualize the facts. This process separates us from most firms who provide forensic animation without a scientific approach.
Our mission to “seek and illustrate the truth” involves directly educating audiences on the complexities of the cases before them. With powerful visuals, clear messaging, and compelling storytelling, our specialists work to uncover the truth of your case from evidence and communicate it effectively to a jury, opposing counsel, or judge. We have strived to always deliver the highest-level analysis possible by quantifying the most important elements of your case.
While the firm was founded in 2012, our team has led innovation in modern forensic analysis and technology since 1997. Through the years, our work has resulted in new, modern analytical standards for areas including nighttime visibility, ballistics analysis, and officer- involved shooting reconstruction. We have performed work across the United States as well as Puerto Rico and Japan.
