After retiring from the NYPD's Crime Scene Unit in 2002, Hal Sherman formed FEAR Forensics. Mr. Sherman spent 15 years in the NYPD's CSU, retiring as a First Grade Detective, after investigating in excess of 2,300 crime scenes.
Forensic Evidence Analysis & Reconstruction (F.E.A.R.) is comprised of a group of forensic practitioners. All involved have extensive law enforcement practical experience in their field of expertise as well as extensive and diverse training. In addition to their experience, most also teach in universities, law enforcement agencies, Federal programs, or internationally.

F.E.A.R. prides itself on being able to testify in a court of law as experts based upon our "training and experience". We have investigated thousands of homicides, shootings and other major crimes.

F.E.A.R. members have testified (in total) in over a thousand criminal, civil and administratve proceedings in NYC, State and Federal Courts, as well as in Israel.

The Court and jurors give more credence to witnesses that articulate theories based upon prior real life work examples in addition to their academic training.

We have performed forensic investigations in NY, NJ, Conn, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Maryland, Texas, and Wisconsin to name but a few locations. These cases involved criminal and civil matters.

FEAR members have instructed many thousands of responders from dozens of states in the U.S. as well as in Kazakhstan, Latvia, Ukraine, Canada, Guyana, Morocco and Ethiopia. Recent Human Rights Violations workshop at NYU included members of the United Nations and investigators from over 15 countries.

It is in the best interest of you, your client or your investigation to have independent knowledgable people review the evidence, the work product or the reports generated by laboratory personell.

It is human nature for someone not to want another person review their work product. However, fortunately our system of justice allows for checks and balances of rights and allows for the examination of submitted evidence by independent professionals.
