Digital Document Forensics

Although digital documents cannot speak, what they reveal about who, what, when, where, and how questions is more credible than eyewitness testimony. We use document forensics tools to probe digital documents. And we produce answers from Microsoft Office documents like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Also Portable Document Format (PDF) documents and Computer Aided Design (CAD) files like AutoCAD. As a result, digital document analysis exposes the truth of each document’s origin story.

Many of your corporate clients, large and small, continue to leverage corporate email servers like Microsoft Office 365 and Google Workspace. These server environments have migrated online to the cloud with productivity and security benefits for users. We use powerful cloud forensic tools to collect email, attachments, calendars, contacts, tasks, and other Electronically Stored Information (ESI) from both Microsoft Office 365 and Google Workspace, formerly G Suite or Google Apps.

Our cost-effective digital document forensics service is deeply probative, fast, and convenient for busy attorneys and paralegals to prove up business disputes, wills and trusts contests, family law matters, and construction claims.

During a contentious marital dissolution our client was desperate to find a way to show money received was a loan and not a gift. Miraculously, Carney Forensics dug beneath the surface of an Excel spreadsheet and proved it was created by the ex-wife and established when she created it! Not surprisingly, this new evidence prompted a quick settlement.
