“Thank you for your assistance and testimony in the case of State of Hawaii vs. Otsuka. Your expert analysis at the pretrial stage was essential in preparing the case for trial and your testimony at trial was clear and concise. Ultimately, I believe that your contributions to the case were a critical part of the jury acquitting my client on all counts. The next time I find myself in need of a forensic handwriting expert, I will surely be checking your availability.”  • J. Grant Giventer, Esq., Deputy Public Defender, State of Hawaii, Honolulu, HI

“In a recent large case involving numerous executed documents which were of a questionable nature, Reed was able to identify over twenty-six documents that were either forged or inappropriately executed, and his report was very instrumental in our settling the case at trial. Through discovery, the Defendants in the case actually admitted to the forgeries and the altered documents after receiving a copy of Reed’s report.”  • Edward J. Bybee, Esq., Honolulu, HI

“On behalf of our clients [Plaintiffs] we would like to thank you for your assistance as an expert witness in the trial of this case. In large part as a result of your work, we were successful in obtaining a judgment againt the defendants not only for the full amount of the promissory note plus interest but also an additional award of $400,000 punitive damages.”  • Robert Chapman, Esq., Clay Chapman Crumpton Iwamura & Pulice, Honolulu, HI

“The US Bank v. Gordon litigation has been officially terminated with the recent filing of a Stipulation For Dismissal. On behalf of the Defendant and her entire family who supported this fight against U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo, Fremont and others, we thank you so very much for your invaluable assistance. As you may know, through our settlement, Defendant’s family succeeded in retaining title to the subject property and Defendant, now 97 years of age, will continue to live in her home for the rest of her days.  We are so very grateful for your help and professionalism. Your analysis surrounding the handwritings was extraordinary. Your several reports played a huge part in everyone’s understanding of how this evil deed was done and surely helped to move the opposing parties toward settlement.”  • Bruce K. Campbell, Esq., Honolulu, HI
