The report provided by Footprint Investigations was extremely useful in highlighting a number of crucial links in the case. The presentation and explanation of the report was extremely professional and easy to understand. It was instrumental in gaining guilty pleas from the defendants.
Thank you again for your extremely swift and professional assistance.
The CPD course “Cell Site Analysis in Action” trashes everything that you thought you knew about cell site.
Footprint Investigations prepared an excellent cell site report for us when our client faced an allegation of murder. The report provided was clear, concise and jargon free. The maps were easy on the eye and proved fantastic in directing the jury to various places on the map. The experts at Footprint Investigations were always available over the phone in particular during the course of the trial. We would not hesitate in recommending them.
Denise, may I add that I am very impressed with the quality of the material, the quick turnaround, and the ease of communication with yourself in particular. I will be advising other members of staff to utilise your services in the future.
I would like to express my thanks for all the assistance provided by Footprint Investigations in the recent case of a conspiracy to rob and grievous bodily harm with intent. The report you provided was pivotal in securing the convictions of two men who are now serving substantial prison sentences. It was essential to attribute a specific mobile phone to one of the defendants thereby clearly demonstrating evidence of a conspiracy. Greg Robinson successfully demonstrated within his maps and report exactly what was required in a manner that was easily understood by the jurors.
I can confirm that my client was acquitted, Greg’s evidence was such a great help.Thank you very much for all the assistance you have given throughout this case and I would like to take this opportunity to stress how impressed we were with the quality and standard of the work you provided.I know I speak for us all here at Khan Solicitors when I say that Footprint Investigation will be the first company we contact in future for all our Cell Site needs!
No.1 High Pavement Chambers would like to thank Footprint Investigations for an excellent presentation. The feedback I have received has been very good, what could be considered as a dull subject was presented in an informative and entertaining way. Several people have made it plain that if they have issues with cell site analysis in the future it is you they will contact for expert assistance.
Greg Robinson from Footprint Investigations prepared a cell site analysis report for the CPS in a matter that I was defending, and I was struck by how easy their report was to follow, but quickly realised that their findings would be difficult to challenge! After giving evidence and being hopelessly cross examined by me (in hindsight I realise that was pretty pointless given his level of expertise) I took Greg’s card. I then instructed him with a murder trial just 2 weeks away and was made to feel that nothing was too inconvenient.
Their knowledge of legal and court procedure is second to none. I would never hesitate to instruct them again and indeed have done so.
If Footprint Investigations are instructed by CPS or a co-defendant cutting your throat, be afraid! Their reports are the best. I have worked with no less than 8 different cell site experts over the years, some repeatedly and Footprint Investigations will always be my first choice.
I wanted to thank you both on behalf of Old Bailey Chambers for the excellent seminar you delivered on Cell-site. It was extremely well received and we were grateful that you made a very difficult and sometimes dry subject very lively-as was evident by the audience participation! The presentation was superb and easy to follow even for the novice.
I was contacted by Footprint Investigations who were offering a free CPD course about Mobile Phone Cell Site Analysis and took them up on their kind offer. The course was well attended by fee earners of this firm and the feedback was very positive. The general consensus from those who attended was that the course content was interesting and thought provoking, with the course presenter entertaining and easy to follow. Finally, the literature was very helpful and CPD Certificates were delivered within just one week of the course taking place – very efficient.
Thank you very much indeed for all the schedules and explanatory document, I am extremely grateful to you, your team and in particular Andy for all the hard work you have put into this and the extra effort that you have had to endure in dealing with a demanding and difficult Counsel!!!
I can assure you that without that material, particularly the careful, painstaking attention to detail, with the ability to explain in a counsel, Judge and jury friendly manner, contributed enormously to the effectiveness of submissions that were being made on the defendant’s behalf, and as such made counsel’s task much easier than it should have been.
Could you please pass on these thanks to all concerned. I suspect this will not be the last that you hear from me!
‘The cell site analysis presentation was professional, informative and well worth the effort of attending. Andy brings his subject to life with a wealth of in depth information, technical detail and, surprisingly, fun tales from his extensive past. This is a topic that will become more and more important in trial situations and footprint investigations are a step ahead of the competition’.
The speakers were very professional and pitched the course at a level that was appropriate for all attending. At the conclusion of which we were left with a clear understanding of how cell site analysis can be used as part of the defence case, even when the prosecution haven’t relied on such evidence.
Just wanted to say that I have spoken to most of the people who attended the course on Monday and they all thought it was one of the most interesting and entertaining courses they had been on. Many thanks.
Having recently instructed Footprint investigations, I have personal knowledge of the scope of their work, the assistance they led to my client’s defence, but more importantly, the part they played in securing data from the prosecution.
The reports are presented in easy to follow colour charts’, which are presented in folders, making them very easy to use and look very impressive at trial.
We were delighted with the level of service, speed of response and follow up suggestions.
We recently instructed Footprint Investigations to conduct cell site analysis in a lengthy high profile case at Birmingham Crown Court.
The matter was conducted with efficiency, professionalism and the report was presented in a jury friendly manner.
They provided continuous expertise and advice as the trial progressed, and I would not hesitate in recommending them to others.
We instructed you in relation to a cell site analysis case and found Footprint Investigations were excellent in all aspects and in particular run an efficient service which was thoroughly professional and extremely helpful throughout. We would have no hesitation in using Footprint Investigations in the future.
Denise, thank you again for delivering training, I have received nothing but praise in relation to this.
I understand today that you also supplied us with a report, which the presentation of was second to none. We are very impressed and as mentioned, had added your details to our experts directory.
Please do let us know if and when you have any other new training sessions.
I really want to thank you, Greg, and the Team for all your efforts in this case. I will be definitely using you again and I have passed on a couple of your cards to 2 firms of Solicitors.
The cell site analysis report did make a difference as the Crown indicated that, in light of the recent cell-site evidence which has emerged and, taken with the other evidence, there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction.
Thank you, once again, for all of your kind assistance and we will certainly not hesitate to call upon Footprint Investigations in the future should this be necessary.’
A special thank you to Andy for working tirelessly and ensuring he obtained exactly what he needed from the Crown. Needless to say Footprint Investigations will remain my first choice experts.
Their ability to meet impossible deadlines with unfailing good humour is only superseded by the quality of their cell site analysis work, which, on the occasions we have instructed them, has been left unchallenged by the Prosecution.
I cannot thank you enough for all your support and assistance throughout the course of my instructions to you. I would have really struggled to get things rolling but for your very kind assistance. You are just one of a kind. You provided me with all the information required to make necessary applications. I am so grateful Denise and I will not hesitate to instruct you again in future or recommend you to my colleagues. You really went all out to provide me with relevant support. It has been a real pleasure working with you.
‘Thank you for preparing the report in record time, I am very impressed with the report and the speed and quality of service . I specialise in the heavy end of crime where cell site analysis is relatively common. I will certainly use your services again and recommend your organisation’.
‘I thought you might like to know that my client got a Not Guilty verdict for the conspiracy to murder and we’re grateful for your assistance’
I cannot recommend Footprint Investigations highly enough, for the truly professional and thorough expert service provided. They were able to turn around a large volume of data in an extremely short period of time, following late service of the evidence requested, and prevented a lengthy trial from having to be adjourned at a late stage of proceedings. They provided a detailed advice, in addition to the report request, to assist counsel in cross examining the Prosecution expert witness. Andy and Denise were always on hand to answer any additional queries raised during the course of the investigation and to provide a constant update as to how the report was progressing.
I have instructed Footprint on numerous occasions to assist in matters relating to phone and cell site evidence, and the analysis of prosecution expert reports, the presentation of call data records, and the undertaking of cell site research and field surveys. I have been so impressed by the service Footprint provide. They have always dealt with instructions quickly and conscientiously, and the documents they have prepared are well presented, properly researched and reasoned, and easy to understand. The assistance they’ve provided to me has been invaluable, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
We have instructed Footprint Investigations on a number of high profile cases. We have always found them to be professional, extremely helpful in complex matters and would have no hesitation in recommending Footprint Investigations to other defence solicitors.
Once again the team at Footprint Investigations demonstrate that they are prepared to go the extra mile to ensure that work is completed in time even when only requested days before a hearing, in an easily digestable form and a willingness to respond to any queries rapidly. In my view the reports provided are always of high quality and persuasive.
Thank you for always being amazingly awesome! We are aware that we contribute to your stress levels. You are the dream team!
Greg Robinson was instructed at extremely short notice to prepare cell site reports in a serious allegation of kidnap and s18 GBH. He worked non stop to what all counsel thought would prove an impossible deadline, and produced a clear and easy to follow report and maps, all of which were far easier to understand than the reports relied upon by the prosecution. He was available to deal with all my last minute queries and explained everything in a completely user friendly way. I wouldn’t hesitate to instruct him again in a case involving cell site evidence.
“During our trial the Crown decided to rely on otherwise not used cell site analysis to try to establish the movements of the defendants. We then required an expert to look at this data quickly so as not to significantly delay the trial but also thoroughly so that we were in the best possible position to advise our clients and continue the trial. Greg and his team worked tirelessly to get the work done and were instrumental in the resolution of the case. They really couldn’t have assisted more. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to others.”
“I was recently instructed for the defence in an allegation of kidnapping and GBH with intent. The Crown’s case relied heavily on cell site evidence which was presented in a manner that obscured the real issues in the case. Footprint Investigations were asked to step in at the last minute. The expertise of Greg and his team was immediately apparent. They were able to analyse the evidence and to explain and present their analysis in simple, clear terms. They dealt with an enormous workload with patience and remarkable good humour. Having been instructed on a Friday afternoon they had prepared a report by Sunday afternoon. In the event the prosecution were unable to argue with their propositions and the result was that the defendant was acquitted of the most serious counts on the indictment. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
‘Both clients were found Not Guilty after trial! Thank you and all the team at Footprint for your hard work in helping us achieve these great results! The cell site reports made a huge difference.’
‘On day 10 of a multi-handed attempted murder trial, it became apparent for the first time that expert assistance was required to make good a crucial point on behalf of the defendant using cell-site evidence.
Understanding the urgency, within 2 days of seeking their assistance, Greg Robinson and the team at Footprint had produced the required maps and charts, a clear and comprehensive expert report, and had a conference with me at court, such that the evidence was ready for service on the Prosecution.
Their assistance was extremely professional and thorough, and it was a pleasure to work with them.’
‘ I would like to take this opportunity to thank Denise for her excellent service and professionalism. She communicated with us regularly to give us updates about the reports requested. Very impressed with the quality of work and the presentation of the report prepared by Greg Robinson. Wouldn’t hesitate to use Footprint Investigations in the future and will be recommending your services to others. Thank you once again for all your assistance ‘
‘His help has been greatly appreciated. He has been excellent – counsel is very happy with his assistance and his report. Because of that I have no doubt she, as will we, want to use John Mallinder again for other cases in the future.’
Just a quick note to express our sincerest gratitude for all your hard work, patience and skill in turning all the material you have in this case. We could not recommend you more highly.
With our very best wishes
John Tarpey was called as an expert witness to explain the workings of cell sites and how the signal moves from mast to mast. He gave a lay mans understanding for the jury of his RF survey and how this was mirrored in the comms data received.
John came across as an excellent witness and very knowledgeable in this area.
You’ve been absolutely marvellous.
I will recommend you if I know of anyone wanting your expertise and intend to make a note in our departmental manual.
I wish to thank you and the rest of your team for turning around this report around. I know it was a very difficult task trying to obtain all of the data, and I am extremely grateful for all of your efforts in meeting the very tight timeframe. Footprint has always been the number one expert for my liking, and you have proved once again why that is the case.
As an investigation team, we’ve been really impressed once again with the service and evidence given by Footprint around mobile phone commonality & lifestyle, cell site and GPS analysis. As you know, this was a very difficult case to investigate, and we’re eternally grateful to everyone that helped (often at short notice) – Andy, Sue, John, Chris and Mike, and no doubt more people behind the scenes. The cell site and GPS maps were used to great effect in the jury bundles, and the fact that John Tarpey didn’t get challenged in cross-examination reflects the careful preparation and meticulous planning of the evidence. Thank you too to Mike and Chris for their RF surveys and advice – they’ll know Liverpool like the back of their hands soon!
Thanks to your team’s efficiency we didn’t miss a single deadline for the service of telephone evidence, which is something quite rare on such a large investigation…
