"Manlove forensics (Kathy Manlove) was instructed by the defence in a recent high profile case of kidnap at Kingston Crown court to examine prosecution expert footmark evidence. The prosecution evidence was that footmarks made in the victim’s blood at scene of his imprisonment were a match to the defendant’s trainers.
The preparation of the report and the analysis of the evidence were exemplary. Kathy Manlove had remarkable skills in conveying with clarity to the jury (and to counsel) the significance of the evidence and how it might interpreted. She dealt with the complexities and issues arising with assuredness and revealing insight. In this case the presentation of her report, including the use of visuals aids, highlighted with striking clarity the deficiencies in the prosecution evidence.
Legal submissions ensued that led to the case being stopped against the defendant. This is an expert I would highly recommend and will use again."
Graham Arnold, Counsel, Farringdon Chambers
"I thought I would take the opportunity to thank you for all the assistance provided by Manlove Forensics.
Both the speed and effort which both James and Dr Gray put in has been exceptional. The timescales the Judge placed us under were unrealistic yet we were able to meet them due to their professionalism and the swift seamless service provided.
Irrespective of the outcome I would like to thank you and those involved. I could not have wanted anything more from the service provided.
I hope to utilise you in the future and will be recommending both James and Wendy and Manlove Forensics to colleagues in the profession."
Fiona Stevens, Solicitors, Cobleys Solicitors LLP
"I would have no hesitation in recommending...
Having recently instructed Dr Manlove in a complicated murder trial I was impressed both by the speed and efficiency with which he dealt with his investigations and thereafter the utterly comprehensive scope of his findings. Such was the thoroughness of his work that the Crown had to re-visit and then revise their own findings. His work was quite simply outstanding."
