Welcome to the homepage of this extensive Forensic Science
website. My name is Richard Ernest, and I'm an award winning forensic
scientist and consultant with over 25 years of experience in the field.
During my career I've worked literally thousands of forensic cases, and
testified hundreds of times. I've performed work on such notable cases as
the Atlanta Murdered & Missing Children (Georgia vs. Wayne Williams), the
Branch Davidian cases from Waco, the Texas Cadets Murder (Texas vs.
David Graham and Dianne Zamora), the Miami SWAT case (USA vs. Acuna, et. al.
- the Richard Brown case), and the Jayson Williams case (NJ vs. Jayson
Williams). I've also had a great deal of experience
working as a forensic consultant in civil case & criminal case matters. I've
worked closely with insurance company lawyers, and literally saved their
companies millions of dollars by scientifically proving fraudulent claims.
I've also worked closely with civil case lawyers litigating officer involved
At this point in my career, I'm one of a very few private forensic ballistics
consultants in the United States. I also own and operate my own independent forensic firearms laboratory (see Alliance Forensics Laboratory). I've worked cases all across the United States.
My clients include law enforcement agencies, district attorney's offices, civil
and criminal case lawyers, private individuals, journalists, writers, educators
My main areas of expertise are firearms identification (ballistics),
shooting scene reconstruction, crime scene reconstruction, and general
criminalistics. Additionally, examination & testing is available through my contacts with
forensic scientists in other areas of the forensic sciences such as questioned
document examination, latent fingerprints analysis, trace evidence, etc.
