Preserving Evidence That’s Forensically Sound and Admissible

At  Litigation Solutions Inc. (LSI) we know how vital forensic collection is to our clients. Preserving evidence in a forensically sound and admissible manner is of the utmost importance. We leverage our estimable knowledge of the litigation process with the most advanced forensic tools to help our clients develop a winning, cost-effective case strategy.

In the 15 years we’ve been in business, LSI has seen significant changes in the field of forensic collection, most notably when it comes to the use of social media. The number of social media applications has increased, and consequently the sheer volume of data to be searched has increased, as well. One thing has remained constant over the years though – forensically sound data acquisition has always been the cornerstone of collection. We understand that improper collection of electronic evidence could result in its spoliation, if the correct procedures are not followed and documented.

LSI engages a time-tested, repeatable process that delivers predictable results and keeps costs as low as possible for our clients. Our flat-rate pricing model ensures clients won’t be hit with costly surprises as their project continues. To deliver solid results, LSI leverages the latest technology for forensic collection. For example, we are the only litigation support firm in Denver to use industry- leading EnCase Forensic, a fully integrated and easy-to-use forensic data acquisition and analysis software.

It’s always challenging to keep abreast of the latest developments in the forensic collection arena. We are increasingly sensitive to obtaining permission from users to collect data, and with technology being more invasive than it’s ever been, it’s harder than ever to stay on the right side of the law. This is especially true when we’re dealing with personal information. For example, HIPAA regulations restrict what we can do when evaluating health care information, and we sometimes must enter into non-disclosure agreements to protect sensitive data.

We also must stay on top of new applications such as  Pokémon GO, and with more and more apps having geolocating built in, we predict we’ll be seeing plenty of this type of data in the collection process. As courts determine the parameters of admissibility of geolocation, it will be interesting to see how it affects the scope of discovery.

No matter what the future brings, one thing will always be true: LSI is the region’s most knowledgeable team of litigation support specialists. If you have any questions about LSI and how we approach forensic collection, ask on our website or call us at (303) 820-2000.
