As a criminal defense attorney I have worked with Laura both as a colleague, when we served together while I was Chief of the Non-Capital Trial Division and Laura was Chief of Forensic Services, as well as when we both were in private practice. Laura Schile, working with her colleague Karen Mize, have been seminally responsible for favorable outcomes in a large number of cases. While Laura’s expertise is in DNA evidence, she is knowledgeable in a wide variety of forensic disciplines such as crime scene reconstruction, microscopic hair evidence, and numerous others. She has changed the conclusions of medical examiners on several occasions by her analysis and persuasion. She is hard-working, diligent, and a huge asset at the counsel table in jury trials. I cannot imagine a more thorough and incisive expert in any case involving forensic evidence. She is deeply respected by defense counsel and prosecutors alike, from exposing Joyce Gilchrist’s nefarious actions in the Oklahoma City Police lab, to assisting the prosecution in the Kobe Bryant matter. I am honored and pleased to endorse Laura, and her highly capable investigator and retired 20-year veteran police officer Karen Mize, for any trial support team.
