About Jacqueline Joseph

Handwriting and document forensics has been my specialty and passion for 23 years.  I continue to be fascinated by this work….no two cases are ever alike!

My clients include attorneys and business owners, human resources department managers, corporate security, and people who want to know the truth about a document or “Who Wrote It?”

(Read what clients have to say about Jacqueline.)


I am a recognized, court-qualified expert witness and have testified over 70 times. My career has taken me into the world of disputed wills, bank robberies, falsified signatures, altered documents, cover-ups, attempted thefts, graffiti, harassment and more.

My consultations combine handwriting expertise and forensic science in order to find out who did or did not write something suspicious, malicious, libelous or otherwise disturbing.

Additionally, when there is a question about the authenticity of artwork, historic artifacts or memorabilia, I have the resources and equipment to conduct appropriate tests that will lead me to an opinion.
