          Every case I work is given the same attention to detail which has characterized my work product throughout my career, but there are cases that I've worked on (or have been a part of) which have generated a large amount of media attention.

          "Richard is the most knowledgable and highly dedicated professional in the field. His expertise is second to none, and he brings with him at all times a high level of integrity that neither side of any litigation can question."

Christopher D. Adams, Esq.

Roseland, New Jersey

          "Mr. Ernest testified for the defense in a first-degree murder case I handled in November 2002. He was easy to work with, prompt, diligent, and well-prepared. His trial testimony was impressive and professional. He explained things to me in a way that I could understand, and he did the same thing for the jury. I intend to contact him again the next time I have a case that requires the assistance of a forensic expert, and I have referred him to others."

          "Richard Ernest is not only well qualified, he is among the most thoughtful and thorough experts with whom I have worked over the past thirty years in the practice of law. He worked as a member of a team in developing a defense, including coordinating his efforts with those of other experts. In fact, his ballistics studies focused other experts evaluations and opinions.

          Not only was Mr. Ernest extremely competent in developing ballistics information, he presented it in a form that could be understood by laymen. His efforts were a key element of not only obtaining a dismissal, but in proving that my client was innocent."
