Maltreatment through Problem Falsification/Deception

Lasher Expert Services

Louisa is every bit as interested in identifying case situations in which an individual has been suspected, accused, or even confirmed as being a perpetrator – when indeed the person is not guilty of this behavior – as she is in identifying genuine perpetrators of this kind. Mistakes have been made throughout the world – largely due to the lack of specialized knowledge, experience and skills needed.

Louisa is not nor will she be a “hired gun” – her goal is always, to the extent humanly and legally possible, to find the truth and to make detailed recommendations in light of that truth.
