Pedigree Matters

For electronic evidence to be admissible, it must be harvested in a scientifically sound fashion by a computer forensics professional. Mis-steps at any critical stage of the process can render the electronic evidence useless, and can place your case in jeopardy. Even worse, an inexperienced or incompetent computer forensics analyst can draw erroneous conclusions that can be impeached or can imperil the very integrity of the data, leading to spoliation.

4Discovery Computer Forensics Experts are leaders in our field. We have produced outstanding results in literally hundreds of cases, and our experts have extensive testimony experience, advanced training, and certifications. We bring decades of experience from both Law Enforcement and the Private Sector.  Ask about our references, bios, and testimony experience.
