Are Forensic Document Examiners Handwriting Experts?

Yes, forensic document examiners are handwriting experts, but forensic document examiners do not usually use the term handwriting expert to refer to themselves.  The courts and attorneys commonly use the term handwriting expert; however, most forensic document examiners believe the term handwriting expert is too limiting.  Forensic document examiners perform a much wider range examinations than handwriting examination, comparison, and identification.  

It is true that handwriting examination is the bulk of the work performed by most forensic document examiners.  Forensic document examiners examine handwriting and signatures to identify and eliminate potential writers and detect forgery. They also testify about handwriting examinations as an expert witness in court, but qualified forensic document examiners are also experts in the examination of typewritten and computer-generated documents, counterfeit documents, alterations and obliterations on documents, and to detect and decipher indented handwriting impressions.  Forensic document examiners also conduct examinations of documents created by photocopiers and fax machines, examine ink and paper, as well as the examinations of documents to determine if handwriting or other entries on documents were made contemporaneously. 

By the way, forensic document examiners might also be called questioned document examiners, forensic handwriting analysts, and forensic document analysts.  Some may use the terms document experts, handwriting authentication specialists, signature experts, handwriting identification experts, and forgery experts.  The most correct terms are forensic document examiner or questioned document examiner, and in some laboratories, forensic document analyst.
