Scientific Background of
Joseph H. Guth, Ph.D., CIH

Founder and President of
Scientific and Forensic Services, Inc.
As a practicing basic and applied research scientist in many aspects of chemistry, biochemistry and physics, as a university professor, analytical and forensic chemical laboratory director, and health/safety professional for over 50 years, my perspective has been honed by a great amount of detailed study, as well as broad range of activities and measurements. I have always endeavored to have a thorough theoretical as well as experimental grounding in any field of work that I entered, but learned early on the value of working with individuals who specialized in each sub-discipline I engaged in. Many client attorneys have found my broad and thorough approach to their case work to be of exceptional value, especially because my simple, plain-spoken, lucid testimony on each subject provides the trier of fact with an intelligible and accurate understanding of the relevant science upon which they must base a legal decision. As a truly independent expert consultant in hundreds of legal cases, I have provided opinions and testimony for both defense and plaintiff sides of civil legal cases, as well as for both defendent and prosecutorial sides in criminal casework.
