Mark Thiessen Completes ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer Scientist Designation at Axion Labs

Share Article

On June 28, Mark Thiessen was awarded the ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist Designation for completing hands-on classes and testing at Axion Labs. It's the highest form of scientific recognition an attorney can receive.

Thiessen completed these courses through Axion Analytical Labs in Chicago, IL:
1.    The first class “Forensic Chromatography” involves DUI ethanol based analysis by HS-GC-FID.
2.     The second class “Forensic Drug Analysis” involves the instrumental analysis of solid drugs in their pre-consumption form using FTIR, GC-MS, Colormetrics, Microscopy, Thin Layer Chromatography, etc.
3.    The third class “Forensic Principles of DUID” involves the pharmacology of drugs, also driving issues in drugs, as well as instrumental analysis using GC-MS.

All the classes are hands-on classes with labs and actual sample development, testing, and data interpretation. All instruments were used in the same way, using the same matrices in the Axion Laboratory as an analyst would in a forensic laboratory. At the end, Thiessen had to pass a rigorous test to achieve the formal designation. Like “poet-warrior” or “philosopher-king,” there are lawyers of a new breed known as the ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist. The ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist is one who uses validated and legitimate science for the benefit of justice. These are lawyers who study the science and apply it legitimately in the courtroom. They expose invalid or non-validated science and use valid science in the courtroom. They eschew the smoke and mirrors techniques of old and embrace the science for the benefit of all.
