High Profile Cases Recently at NCAVF

• Too often attorneys assume what they hear is the best they can get. Don’t fall into this trap.
NCAVF offers you many audio forensic techniques to clear up sound. Two San Luis Obispo officers approached a car parked along the road and after a short interaction with the driver shot 35 times into a car, killing the man.

NCAVF analyzed and clarified the dashcam audio evidence and created a forensic transcript of the conversations. The original audio contained sections that were largely unintelligible and forensic clarification made it clear, assisting with a judge’s decision to dismiss the matter. Read more here including the text of the judge's very interesting ruling to dismiss the matter

• Cellphone as witness gives client alibi!
Forensic phone analysis here at NCAVF recently proved our client innocent. Client insisted he was not present at the crime. We extracted data including GPS and time data -- photos, videos, texts, phone calls, and apps. We drilled down to analyze specific database entries from the Lyft app, showing the client took a Lyft ride at an exact time and traveled to a specific address. This proved our client could not have been at the location of the crime. Case closed.

• She was facing 15 years in jail, until NCAVF assisted in finding a needle-in-the-haystack that led to mistrial.
Client charged with a shooting at the University of Washington. Syncing 400 videos led to discovering a needle-in-the-haystack audio clip. The judge called a mistrial and the DA dropped charges.

Our client wrote, “NCAVF’s impressive work enabled us to find footage crucial to our theory of the case.”
