About Us

We are a leading provider of forensic science services to the Criminal Justice System. Building upon the success of Oxfordshire-based Forensic Access with over 100 staff scientists, we are continuing to rapidly expand our geographical footprint both in the North and the South of England, with an unrivalled external team of over 300 forensic experts across the country.

What We Can Offer

Administration and Quality Control

You will be supported by our dedicated Casework Management team who offer end-to-end assistance with administrative tasks, from requesting relevant case papers to report proofreading and deadline management. This will free you up to dedicate your entire focus and attention to the science at hand.


You will be provided with one point of communication between yourself and the legal team. Our Casework Managers ensure that our Expert Witnesses receive documentation, records and data in good time, whilst also sifting through case bundles to save you time from the initial enquiry right through to court appearance.


Our Casework Managers are on hand to set up any appointments related to a case, including assessments and case conferences, so that you don’t have to! We only assign our experts work, based on their specialisms and capacity, and provide lead times as long as possible.


Our dedicated marketing team ensure that we receive a steady flow of enquiries in key areas with controlled and targeted material. They help to raise awareness about your expertise and specialist services through regular news and events targeted at solicitors and barristers.


We employ robust finance processes which are in place to ensure that payments are made promptly for our experts’ services for all cases, including those funded by legal aid.

Information Security

At Forensic Access, we pride ourselves on abiding by the Forensic Science Code of Conduct, whilst also adhering to data protection regulations and GDPR laws. We understand the importance of both case confidentiality and confidentiality surrounding our experts.
