E-Mail Forensics

Could evidence from popular e-mail services like Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail,, Comcast or others like them help you win your client’s next case?

More and more people, plaintiffs and defendants alike, leave their electronic fingerprints on the Internet. Web-based e-mail stored by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) can be a fruitful source of smoking gun evidence that can provide impeachment opportunities at trial and give you a clear advantage in court or in arbitration.

The Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) governs how the state and attorneys may obtain e-mail evidence from ISPs. Federal and state case law in recent years has significantly limited the use of ECPA by civil litigants. We take an alternative approach to subpoenas and instead use technology to data mine this discoverable evidence directly from the cloud, or from mobile devices and computers. We also process it for you and harvest e-mail addresses and routing information, personally identifiable information, conversations among litigants, and even perform keyword searches against it. Working together with you we can produce highly relevant and compelling web mail evidence for use in court.

The e-mail messages we provide could change the course and outcome of your next case.

We have all the tools, training, and experience necessary to assist attorneys and investigators with cutting edge, digital forensics. Our reports are easy to understand and we will consult with you, draft affidavits, and provide expert witness court room testimony, if you need it. Our cost effective e-mail forensics service is fast, convenient, and independent.
