Computer Forensics Services for Attorneys

Computer Forensics:  When does a case warrant it?

If your opponents client uses a computer, or if the organization you represent uses computers, they need computer forensics.

The modern computer has invaded our very existence. It has become a part of our lives, and is an integral component of many legal cases. From complex litigation and class actions to contract disputes and sexual harassment, Computer Forensics of Boston has helped law firms reduce the costs associated with electronic discovery, quantify damages, and win cases.

Computer forensics differs from data recovery, which implies recovery of data after an event affecting the physical data, such as a hard drive crash. Computer forensics goes much further. It involves the in-depth analysis of information contained within and created by computer systems and other digital devices.

Computer Forensics of Boston expertly handles Electronic Discovery (E-Discovery), which is the collection and preparation of relevant data from computers as they relate to a court case. We will correctly go through the process of obtaining electronic evidence from computer media and preserving that evidence for admissibility in court. This process may include:

  • Recovering deleted files such as documents, graphics, and photos.
  • Searching unallocated space on the hard drive, places where an abundance of data often resides.
  • Tracing artifacts, those tidbits of data left behind by the operating system. Our experts know how to find these artifacts and, more importantly, they know how to evaluate the value of the information they find.
  • Processing hidden files — files that are not visible or accessible to the user — that contain past usage information. Often, this process requires reconstructing and analyzing the date codes for each file and determining when each file was created, last modified, last accessed and when deleted.
  • Running a string-search for email, when no email client is obvious.

An in-depth forensic analysis of a computer will reveal Internet usage, recover data, and accomplish a full analysis even after the computer has been defragged and/or formatted. A complete analysis uses industry-standard methodology, and the client is supplied with a concise written report at its conclusion.
