Tasks for which an attorney defending an individual of cyber crime may call a computer forensics expert may include hard drive examination, evidence analysis, independent investigation, data recovery, and counter forensics.  Counter-forensics involves reviewing forensic reports and images of digital evidence acquired by law enforcement.  Our analysis will focus on ensuring that law enforcement followed generally acceptable computer forensics procedures.  We also assist the defense attorney in performing a comprehensive review of the evidence, including exculpatory material that the law enforcement examiner may "miss."

We can provide computer forensics assistance to attorneys representing individuals accused of various computer crimes, including:
