This specialized service is uniquely crafted to each case, so please contact us for more information on how we may be able to assist, the necessary steps, and an estimate.
Consultation involves a comprehensive discovery review of all documents and electronic data produced in the case to identify what, if anything, pertinent to your case should exist but has not been produced. Loehrs Forensics experts will provide detailed technical language used to assist counsel in drafting an intelligent supplemental discovery request.
An expert review of the case can reveal weaknesses, strengths, investigative techniques and faults, and legal strategy that a non-technical person may overlook. This gives counsel assurance that the allegations and evidence in support of, as detailed in discovery, are a whole and accurate representation.
Forensic analysis involves a deep dive of the electronic data across all sources of evidence including data from Cell Service Providers (e.g. AT&T, Verizon), Internet Service Providers (e.g. Cox, Century Link), Electronic Service Providers (e.g. Microsoft, Apple, Google, Facebook), and physical electronic devices (e.g. cell phones, computers, storage drives). Every forensics examination conducted by either plaintiff or the defendant is limited in scope to what has been deemed relevant. For that reason, relying on an examiner's findings who has been directed by adverse counsel is often lacking crucial data pertinent to your case.
Loehrs Forensics analysis is catered to the needs in each case individually. Whether the analysis is an overall sweep of the evidence or limited in scope to specific issues, Loehrs Forensics can provide a deeper understanding of the evidence as it applies to pretrial litigation and trial strategy.
CELL SITE ANALYSIS
Call detail and mobility records produced by Cell Service Providers (e.g. AT&T, Verizon,) are often disclosed in formats unintelligible to lay persons but contain data that can be used to inculpate or exculpate your client. The techniques and technology used to analyze this data is everchanging, so it is especially important to ensure reports produced from this evidence does not overstate or understate the significance of cell tower data. Otherwise, this evidence may be used to incorrectly identify a precise location of a given user, or, vice versa, suggest no precise location could be determined.
Beyond the estimated location, these records can also reveal additional information about the user including specific devices used and a pattern of activity. Patterns can reveal a user’s location is not unique to a specific incident, but a routine commute.
A Loehrs Forensics Report of Examination is much more than the disclosure of data or a written statement of findings. Rather, our reports are a unique combination of the synopsis of the case, how the digital evidence is crucial to the legal issues as defined by counsel, the underlying data in support of all findings, and a summary of expert opinions in lay terms that any attorney, judge, or jury will understand.
When the electronic evidence is in your favor, a written forensic report detailing that data can be an important negotiation tool to advocate for your client that can live on the record. Whether the report is to negate or support allegations, highlight fatal errors in the other side’s case in support of suppression or spoliation arguments, or mitigate the evidence for a plea or settlement offer, our reports can help secure the outcome you need.
Data does not always speak for itself, especially when there are complex technical issues involved. The most powerful evidence is often through an experienced expert who can explain in lay terms the significance of digital evidence, of lack thereof. Expert testimony can relay opinions based on an analysis of evidence, or simply provide explanations of technical facts of the case.
Our seasoned experts have testified nationwide and internationally in state and federal courts at evidentiary hearings, trials, and sentencing hearings. With that experience comes an innate ability to provide compelling testimony that upholds even under intense cross-examination.
