SEATTLE -May 5, 2004- LAWFUEL – Computer Forensics Inc., one of the nation’s leading providers of computer discovery services, is hosting an intensive, 1 1/2-day clinic later this month to help litigators understand the various technical issues, challenges and timing factors involved with digital data discovery.
The “Data Discovery Boot Camp” will take place on May 21st and 22nd and will be hosted on-site at Computer Forensics’ Seattle headquarters. The cost is $995 per person and the enrollment deadline is May 14th. For more details, please contact David Stenhouse, vice president and director of operations at Computer Forensics, at 206-324-6232.
“Attorneys who take advantage of this program will be equipped to save their clients thousands of dollars by learning how to avoid costly discovery motion practices and by using computer discovery planning tools to minimize the amount of data gathered and processed,” said Joan Feldman, founder and president of Computer Forensics Inc. “Moreover, armed with the practical instruction they will receive, our participants will be better able to formulate reasonable discovery requests and more successfully challenge unreasonable ones.”
According to Feldman, the boot camp will not be a product-oriented clinic, but rather will focus on practical concerns, such as: demonstrations of the processes and tools used by computer discovery experts during data collections; how to examine unallocated space for deleted files and find hidden data; the steps involved in backup tape restoration; an evaluation of the time and expense associated with different types of data collection and review; and the threshold questions to ask before undertaking a data discovery task.
Each participant in the program will receive a copy of “Essentials of Electronic Discovery,” a treatise authored by Feldman and published by Glasser Legal Works in 2003, unredacted copies of sample discovery requests, and sample forms for setting up their own data collection and review environment.
Founded by world-renowned cybersleuth Feldman, Computer Forensics Inc. pioneered the fields of electronic media discovery and electronic risk control in the 1990s, with lawyers relying upon the company’s full-time, certified forensic, discovery and testifying experts for everything from tape restoration to hard drive imaging and analysis. The company provides discovery planning and technical services to the nation’s most respected law firms and corporate law departments to uncover electronic evidence buried in e-mail files, desktop and laptop computers, network servers and backup tapes.
