Social Media, Web and Dark Web Investigations

Will finding information on the internet help your cause? We go above and beyond your routine searches! The digital footprint left behind by content on the internet never goes away, but it can be hidden and difficult to find.

Digital forensics can be complex and challenging for the novice to understand. Our subject matter experts ranging from attorneys with technical backgrounds to post-graduate computer science and software engineers make all things digital easy for our clients to understand and communicate and our former law enforcement are unimpeachable on the witness stand.

AI

Core to many court cases is the timeline of events and actions backed up by evidence. What many attorneys need is a precise and relevant virtual timeline consisting of the digital footprints everyone in this modern age leaves. While this in the past was done with a small army of people, the challenge is that with the avalanche of data that is produced…

MACHINE LEARNING

Machine learning describes how a software platform gains insight and capability absent human interaction based on your input in manipulating the program. It is a form of AI and provides the most efficient means to handle even the most sophisticated and troublesome legal tasks.

SOCIAL MEDIA RESEARCH

With the exponential growth of social media platforms, the legal research field has exploded with access to evidence and information that otherwise might only be revealed, if at all, during tortuous examination under oath. Users are much more likely to disclose, confess, or admit essential facts as they “chat” with friends or family online. Information, thought to be available only with expensive trips and hours of waiting, is now just a click away. The practitioner who utilizes the skilled professional in social media research will have the advantage.

LITIGATION HOLD CONSULTING

Strategy and the tactical advantage can be as important as facts and records. The litigation hold or preservation demand imposes an affirmative duty on the opposition that can be, if done correctly, fashioned into an extremely persuasive argument to block or exclude evidence vital to your opponent’s case. We can provide you with the consultation and guidance necessary to provide the most inclusive and effective hold.

CELL PHONE DATA ANALYSIS

Scrubbing a cell phone to obtain critical information has become as common as practice as the briefcase used to be. There are very few legal controversies that do not result in the seizure or demand for access to a cell phone. Yet, attempting to gain access to a cell phone will risk the destruction of information or access unless you employ a skilled professional. In unskilled hands it will be three strikes and you are out.

COMPUTER DATA ANALYSIS

The heart of any computer, the hard drive, contains an incredible amount of data that in all likelihood is encrypted and compartmentalized. Hard drives can store years and years of data including email strings with attachments, graphs, images, videos, and all manner of data. The bottom line is that you cannot possibly tackle such an overwhelming task without professional guidance. It is not a job for the part time computer nerd. You need a professional nerd with the Office of Data Discovery.
