Separating the Men from the Boys

Posted On August 12, 2015

Let's separate the men from the boys. And the women from the girls, ahem.

What really sets Ramsay Law Firm apart from other criminal defense firms?


Only an attorney who's spent time in the lab, who's worked with the testing instruments, and who is familiar with testing processes and protocols can explain to a jury, in layman's terms, how scientific evidence was generated, and what the test results really show.

As you read this, our fearless leader, Attorney Charles "Chuck| Ramsay, is in a state-of-the-art forensic lab in Chicago, analyzing blood, urine, hair, saliva, and other biological samples for drugs.

Chuck is logging three full days at Axion Analytical Labs:

Day 1: Instrumental Analysis

Qualitative and quantitative instrumental analysis (understanding testing devices and processes, and the reliability and accuracy of test results);

Day 2: Pharmacology (how drugs affect living organisms)

Pharmacokinetics (the study of the time course of drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion); and

Day 3: Pharmacology

Pharmacodynamics (the effects of drugs on behavior, and the mechanism of their action).

Here at Ramsay Law Firm, we understand that:

If you want to make sure that justice happens in the courtroom, you have to understand the science at least as well as the scientists presenting it.

- Justin J. McShane, JD, F-AIC

If there is a scientific issue in a case, we'll find it.

When other attorneys need help with science, they call us.

We have specialized scientific training, and we know how to use science to help our clients win in court.

Can your attorney say that?
