She began consulting on Cold Cases during her time at the University of New Haven under the direction of the Henry C. Lee Institute. Since that time, Dr. Stein has consulted independently for many law enforcement agencies and families on Cold Case homicides, Missing Persons cases, and Child Abduction homicides.

Currently, Dr. Stein provides both training and case consultation services to law enforcement. However, for families seeking a consultation regarding a case, Dr. Stein will provide a comprehensive action plan which includes an overview of the case facts, a victimology and corresponding suspectology report all based on the facts of the case and the crime scene. This will also include suggestions regarding hiring a private investigator, communicating effectively with law enforcement, and a recommended investigative plan.
