Computer Forensics - Data Recovery - Expert Witness Testimony

It’s a fact! Computers, cell phones, PDAs, and today's multitude of other electronic devices and the information they contain, frequently play a major role in legal matters, and may contain pivotal evidence in a case. To make matters more complex, the new federal rules concerning discovery of Electronically Stored Information (ESI) that went into effect December 1, 2006, radically alter the manner in which most companies manage their electronic documentation and communications.

Electronic Evidence Retrieval is a full service electronic forensics firm, with offices across the country. We have the expertise and specialized containment tools necessary to make a forensically sound recovery of ESI, complete with the chain of custody safeguards recognized by the courts in such cases. We also offer consultations and seminars to assist attorneys and their clients in adhering to provisions of the new federal e-discovery rules.
