Expert Witness Services

Confidence, knowledge and experience.

Our fully-trained team of Reporting Scientists deliver professional drug and alcohol testing legal reports, statements and presentations for court cases, panel hearings and tribunals.

Introducing our Expert Witness Service

In law, an ability to defend your clients’ test results is crucial.
Cansford Laboratories is happy to provide our expert witness service for any result processed by our lab.

Alongside the certificate of analysis provided with for each sample, we can also offer a detailed, scripted case report for use in court.

This report includes a declaration of the test result by our reporting scientists, information on the qualifications held by the reporting team and details about the sample itself – including the date of collection.

Our expert witnesses (who are also our senior scientists) have recently redesigned and developed a new-look witness statement collaboration with our IT team. It follows extensive feedback from family law professionals – which you can read more about here.

If you require any additional information in your expert witness report, please get in touch below. We are happy to help!

“Firstly, a huge thank you to yourself and the team. I couldn’t believe how quickly you got the results back to me …24 hours wow! This saved me another two days of worrying myself sick, and for that I am grateful! You have been incredibly helpful, informative, and supportive. All I wanted was the truth to come out of this…and it did!”

I just thought I’d drop you a quick line about P**** V****** (Cansford staff member). P**** has been incredibly helpful over the last week regarding my samples and has been a fantastic advocate for Cansford. I cannot praise him highly enough and he is an asset to your firm. Please do pass on my gratitude for his professionalism, patience and above all helpfulness in fixing the rather precarious position I found myself in. While I’m on the subject of employees I would like to also pass on some praise for G******** (Cansford Collector). She was also incredibly helpful and friendly and made the process of getting my haircut relatively stress-free. I hope this feedback is helpful to you regarding P**** and G*******, so please do pass this on”
