About Terry Elmaleh

​I am a qualified forensic document, handwriting and signature examiner, statement analyst and handwriting analyst based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Forensic Handwriting & Document Examination involves applying special skills, expertise and knowledge in assessing, authenticating and verifying disputed and undisputed fraudulent or genuine signatures, handwriting and documents. 


Traditional selection and recruitment methods don't provide all the answers nor guarantee successful placement of candidates, handwriting analysis, otherwise known as graphology – the psychology of handwriting – is an additional approach to assess the complexities of personality and the dynamics of relationships at work and privately.

Terry is a member of:

  • The Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences - U.K. (CSOFS) - Professional Member

  • The Scientific Association of Forensic Examiners - U.S.A. (SAFE)

  • The International Association of Document Examiners - U.S.A (IADE) 

  • The American Handwriting Analysis Foundation - U.S.A. (AHAF)



DISCLAIMER: The reports that I provide constitute my own personal handwriting/document forensic examiner/professional graphologist/statement analyser expertise and opinion. All reports are treated as confidential. No handwriting analyses will be undertaken without agreement to terms and conditions which include the consent of the writer except for forensic handwriting/document examination cases where consent is not always available.
