Our Lie Detector Testing


Polygraph and Assessment Services, Inc. was established for the purpose of providing the most accurate, honest, and thorough polygraph examinations possible by following the best practice standards of the polygraph field and in accordance with Virginia law.  

We at Polygraph and Assessment Services strive to make each individual feel welcomed during the polygraph test process and we believe that each client should receive the utmost care, respect, and service, no matter the time, date, or issue because it is YOUR Reputation, Integrity, Truth, and
Story that matters.

We don't  feel the need to boast about what we do and we don't seek to discredit other examiners or companies.  Instead, we simply strive to do our best to provide the most accurate polygraph examinations and to meet the needs and desires of the client and/or referral source in a professional and ethical manner. 


President and lead polygraph examiner of the company, Nathan Perkins, has experience conducting polygraph examinations as a Virginia Licensed Examiner with public and private agencies that have included Fire and Rescue departments in Virginia, Police departments in Virginia and Washington D.C., adult and juvenile probation, Northern Virginia Pre-employment and Polygraph Services, local Human Service agencies and mental health hospitals. He also has a close working relationship with various mental health practices in Virginia and he provides service to all areas of Hampton Roads, including Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, Hampton, Newport News, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, and Williamsburg as well as all other areas of Virginia provided a satisfactory location may be established for testing.

Mr. Perkins brings an expertise to polygraph testing that is not shared by many.  After moving to the Hampton Roads area from Colorado, he embarked in a career of education and mental health services prior to becoming a polygraph examiner.  His training and experiences as an educator and mental health clinician provides Mr. Perkins with the insight and depth of knowledge needed to effectively interact and work with all types of individuals during polygraph examinations.  His experiences led him to work with at-risk youth and families, adults, and convicted felons, which included work with convicted sex offenders. 

Mr. Perkins' knowledge of the psychological aspects of humanity and his understanding that each person functions individualy and uniquely provides him the capability to adequately work with all different types of personalities, behaviors, and situations during a polygraph test.  Though not having a history of working in law enforcement as many examiners do, prior to becoming a polygraph examiner, he spent years coordinating with State and Federal law enforcement agencies as a clinician and he understands the magnitude of legal matters and the importance of treating each situation with the utmost care, integrity, and expertise. As a polygraph examiner, Mr. Perkins makes sure that he communicates with, treats, and questions each client in the most effective and professional manner possible in order to assure the most accurate lie detector test results.  He understands that the client's story is the most important aspect of the polygraph examination and he strives to ensure that each client feels comfortable sharing his or her story.           

He has assisted in the instruction of Post-Conviction Sex Offender Testing in coordination with the Virginia School of Polygraph.

Mr. Perkins in fully licensed and insured in the Commonwealth of Virginia and is a good standing member of the Virginia Polygraph Association and the American Polygraph Association
