Our Digital Forensics Experts

At Carney Forensics our experienced and certified digital forensic experts have driven evidence investigators for hundreds of civil and criminal litigations in federal and state courts throughout the U.S. We work closely with counsel to prioritize digital devices, like mobile devices, computers, and online cloud accounts, to cost-effectively collect, preserve, analyze, and produce material, “best” evidence for your settlement talks, and ultimately, district court trials.

Our digital forensic experts prepare evidence from every investigation as though it is going to trial because often it does. We keep a detailed chain of custody and photographic records, and thorough lab notes for each digital device that comes through our lab to ensure its evidence admissibility.

Unlike licensed attorneys in the U.S., digital forensic experts do not have a formal code of standards that are regulated and enforced.  But a common understanding exists in the industry that comports with criminal and civil law, as well as privacy rules and regulations, at federal and state jurisdictions.
