Mehul B. Anjaria has testified as a DNA expert in state and federal courts and has been deposed in civil matters. He leverages his exceptional ability to distill down complicated forensic DNA issues to their essence to deliver practical forthright opinions to his clients.

He commenced his specialization in forensic DNA analysis in 1998 as a criminalist with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department Scientific Investigations Division and rose to the rank of DNA technical leader in 2004.

In 2005 Mr. Anjaria co-founded a private forensic DNA laboratory from the ground up and served as the Laboratory Director, DNA Technical Leader, and Quality Assurance Officer. Under his direction, the laboratory became California’s first ASCLD/LAB-International accredited DNA laboratory.

At the beginning of his forensic science career (March 1996-December 1998) he was a criminalist at two different ASCLD/LAB accredited sheriff’s department crime laboratories and worked in the analysis of solid-dose controlled substances and field investigation of clandestine drug laboratories.

“Ultimately I am in the business of educating my clients about all things related to DNA evidence in the criminal justice system based on my past experience working in law enforcement and private forensic DNA testing laboratories.”
