If you are planning on hiring a document examiner solely based on a fair price, you are are in luck. Despite Mr. Baier’s extensive experience and media exposure, he has maintained a similar price structure as his graduated students and industry peers so that the clients can choose based on ‘quality’ and not price. Bob Baier’s rate schedule is in the normal range of document examiners nationwide for testimonial time and courtroom appearances… the prices listed above for the initial consultation, lab-work, and letter of opinion are below the average industry prices. But, Mr. Baier is not the cheapest in the United States. If you want a “discount price”, please contact one of Mr. Baier’s students or a less experienced examiner.

Choose your expert based on quality, not price.
