Our computer forensics experts use a variety of the latest tools to forensically copy data from computers, drives, servers and cloud storage for examination. Our examination of the preserved data is where we really shine. Testimonials given by clients, judges and juries have been our greatest reward for cases worked well from beginning to end. We have invested heavily in software, equipment and professionals at our labs to quickly provide results on the most complex cases. Don Vilfer leads our Digital Forensics and previously founded Califorensics which was sold in 2014. He has provided sworn testimony in cases involving computer and mobile forensics over 100 times. Other examiners at the firm include former FBI Special Agents and Information Security professionals with vast experience working complex cases and digital investigations.
All litigation today potentially involves Electronically Stored Information (ESI) and eDiscovery. Today’s massive storage capabilities require a nuanced and methodical approach to collecting and culling electronic data. Gone are the days of collecting everything available and processing and reviewing for months. We have frequently presented to attorney groups, CLE classes and legal conferences on these methods. For clients who are able to retain us from the get go, we are able to give them the benefit of unique tools, tested and proven processes and a legally defensible end product from eDiscovery experts.
Cell Phone Forensics & Location Analysis
Cell phones now collect and contain more information about people than their computers. Courts are beginning to recognize this and are mandating the collection and preservation of phone data related to litigation and public record act requests. We are constantly updating our mobile forensics tools to be on the leading edge of cell phone forensics and data recovery, supporting the recovery of data from hundreds of device models. We have access to the latest methods to recover data from locked iPhones, the same level of access recently developed for the FBI. Information we can often recover includes deleted text messages, email, location data, cell tower data, photos, call logs and voicemail messages, as well as analyzing for recent activity. Our cell tower location services can help an investigation by pinpointing the location of a phone during a certain point in time. We have the tools and expertise to analyze not only the cell phones, but also call detail records from cell phone providers. We have been certified by courts as experts and provided testimony regarding cell phone forensics and cell tower location analysis, both in civil court and as criminal defense experts.
As experienced and licensed investigators, we assist clients with fact finding beyond digital investigations and forensics. Traditional investigation methods such as interviews and public record research often compliment our fact-finding missions. Similarly, when asked to conduct a traditional investigation such as an employee misconduct or workplace investigation, having the tools and knowledge to incorporate digital forensics to review cell phones and computers often reveals information missed by other investigators that can quickly resolve issues of fact. We receive annual Title IV investigator training and train workplace investigators on investigative techniques and digital forensics issues.
