You have met with your attorney and have gone over the elements of the case. Your attorney feels that you need a computer forensics expert.

If your client has a computer, they need computer forensics. They may not know it; they may dismiss the logic; they may decline the service; but they still need it-every examination that I do emphasizes this truth. The computer has invaded our very existence, become a part of our lives, and is an integral part of almost every case.
