What we don't do:

  • We don't work in a laboratory and are therefore unable to undertake primary examinations of exhibits; however, we can make arrangements to independently re-examine items in the original laboratory. 

  • We don't work beyond our area of expertise. If you are unsure if we can help you, please contact us. If we are unable to assist we will probably be able to put you in touch with someone who can.

  • We don't pretend to be bigger than we are. The Millington Hingley team consists of Jo and Lynne. If you choose to work with us, you will have direct access to one or both of us and we will be responsible for your case.

  • We don't charge commission or overcharge for profit, but we do invest in training and quality management in order to comply with industry regulations and deliver a robust and sustainable forensic science service.
