Attorney's/ Legal Aspects of Polygraph Testing

Additional Information

There is a very huge misconception that polygraph examinations cannot be used in a court of law. Polygraph Examinations can be considered as evidence and if presented properly can be offered in court as such. The information obtained in a polygraph examination will be used in court or out of court. Polygraph Tests have been used in Administrative Hearings, School Boards, Job Termination hearings, United States Military Administrative Hearings and dealing with criminal and civil cases for decades. 

These polygraph examinations have been presented successfully by many highly experienced attorneys on both sides of the law. Prosecutors and Defense Attorneys throughout the United States both Federally and in State Courts. It is also imperative that you get a polygraph examiner that has (Testified in a court of law as a polygraph examiner and who has criminal law enforcement background experience to administer your polygraph examination).  As this will offer you more credibility in your examination, give you a more comprehensive examination for your attorney representing you. 

Examiners with no court room experience, not being a court certified subject matter expert as a polygraph examiner, being an Intern or having less experience administering polygraph examinations or having no law enforcement background experience. Will profoundly effect your polygraph examination, your case and hurt your attorney representing you. 

The examiner with no courtroom certified expertise and no law enforcement background will not fully understand the true nature of your allegations against you and not be able to get the full facts of your case. All they will do is ask basic simple questions.  At Executive Protection Group Polygraph Service and examiner David Goldberg has years of experience working with the finest attorneys who work in Criminal, Civil, Family and Marital law cases daily. Mr. Goldberg has years of experience and thousands of examinations administered assisting attorneys and their clients. Making your polygraph examination more credible and more acceptable in a court of law.  David Goldberg has true court room expert experience who has been deemed an expert by the Circuits Courts and Military Courts as a polygraph examiner and in other areas of investigations.  He is highly recommended by attorneys on both sides of the law. So Mr. Goldberg is not a HIRED HAND MEANING HE TAKES NO SIDES. HE FINDS THE FACTS OF THE CASE AND PRESENTS IT FAIRLY AND THIS IS HOW THE ATTORNEYS USE THE EXAMIANTION ACCORDINGLY.    

Why do you think a highly rated television talk show hires retired or former law enforcement polygraph examiners. Because they are the best at their profession. They do not hire anyone without Law Enforcement experience.  SO DONT YOU. 

The admittance of the polygraph examination will always be up to the Ruling Judge presiding over any case as in any evidence presented. The judge must decide whether or not he or she will permit this evidence into their court hearing. But your attorney who is experience will also have a big part in this matter. DO NOT Hesitate to prove your innocence because of someone told you it cant be used or a friend, family member or by a rumor that polygraphs wont help you in court. There is Federal Supreme Court Ruling on Admissions of Polygraph Examinations admitted it's called Dalbert vs. Dow Pharmaceuticals 1993. So this is not just Hearsay being said. It is fact written in Law. 

If you feel strongly enough about your innocence and in your case. You need to take a polygraph. If the polygraph gets used you have assisted your case by 110% versus not taking one and not helping yourself later. By not taking a polygraph only delays matters. Judges and Probations Officers throughout Hampton Roads and the State of Virginia orders polygraph examinations on Sexual Offenders and Federal Child Pornography cases,  other criminal matters and those on Probation for certain offenses as well as for certain Child Custody Issues. Once again this proves that polygraph examinations are used in court hearings both in lower State Courts and in Federal Courts and Military courts.
