Criminal defendants are entitled to due process, which includes ensuring that the state identifies, produces, and authenticates key evidence. Additionally, many criminal defendants possess electronically stored information that can exonerate them or establish mitigating circumstances, whether on computers, smart phones, social media accounts, or other locations. When facing criminal prosecution, gathering and identifying all pertinent facts expeditiously is the most effective way to win your case or ensure you obtain the most favorable plea deal.
ELIJAH’s team of forensic experts have experience with preserving data from smartphones and other mobile devices, email accounts, social media, cloud accounts and of course computers. Our diverse backgrounds in law, computer science, accounting, and various other disciplines help us identify key electronically stored evidence and uncover key facts. ELIJAH’s digital forensics experts also have experience testifying in criminal matters, including trials involving murder, computer hacking, child pornography, and other criminal disputes.
ELIJAH has experience working on a wide range of disputes involving police and law enforcement. Police departments are increasingly outfitting their officers and vehicles with cameras. This new technology can be a highly valuable tool but can also create complex evidentiary issues. The validation and authentication of the evidence often comes into question. ELIJAH can perform an expert evaluation of chain of custody and evidence authenticity issues, both on a departmental basis and in individual litigation matters. ELIJAH also has provided digital forensics services in other law enforcement matters, including assisting in internal investigations in which bringing in an objective outside expert can be critical. We understand the sensitivity and importance of law enforcement matters to both our clients and the general public, and routinely are engaged as an outside trusted resource.
For nearly 20 years, ELIJAH has provided expert digital forensic services in civil litigation matters. Our expert digital forensic services include:
ELIJAH has the scale to support the largest digital forensic and eDiscovery challenges in criminal/police litigation matters. We have an over 18-year track record of success in both criminal and law enforcement disputes. When you need the highest level of responsiveness and expertise, our focused approach is second-to-none.
Although we routinely work on large disputes, many are under the mistaken impression that computer forensics and electronic discovery services are not affordable in small cases. Nothing could be further from the truth. For example, a targeted forensic collection can preserve and identify important metadata, and advanced analytics tools can assist in making an otherwise unmanageable amount of data far more cost-effective to review. Our digital forensic and eDiscovery solutions can deliver a substantial return on investment to attorneys and clients.
ELIJAH leverages industry-leading electronic discovery tools help attorneys manage mountains of electronically stored information (ESI) and find the key evidence to identify recoverable assets and/or win their cases. For nearly twenty years, we have evolved efficient solutions to ESI challenges arising through the eDiscovery lifecycle, including:
ELIJAH’s corporate culture is rooted in confidentiality, integrity, and expertise. The Silicon Review recognized that commitment in naming ELIJAH as one of the 50 most trustworthy companies in the United States.

Experienced. Responsive. Trusted. Wise. These are some of the most frequent adjectives clients use to describe ELIJAH.
Finally, longevity matters. We started providing expert digital forensic services four years before the iPhone was invented. We have seen competitors emerge, grow, acquire, divest, and collapse. Some hire huge sales forces, over-promise, and under-deliver, requiring never-ending investments in sales and marketing to find new prospects. ELIJAH has stood the test of time, growing and thriving based almost entirely on repeat business and client referrals. You can trust ELIJAH to deliver the highest levels of responsiveness, judgment, and expertise, because we would not still be here otherwise.
Absolutely! Our experienced digital forensic and eDiscovery team routinely works with criminal litigation counsel in a variety of roles, helping to maximize value for attorneys and clients.
Definitely! Our team additionally works with police litigation counsel to ensure that proper procedures are in place.
ELIJAH has offices nationwide to support client needs. We also can perform almost all digital forensic services remotely, and eDiscovery inherently is a remote service. Geography rarely is an impediment to ELIJAH performing expert computer forensic and electronic discovery services in criminal/police litigation matters.
Not really. Computer forensics is an older term for the profession. As the diversity of electronic storage devices and accounts grew, most have accepted digital forensics as a more inclusive, accurate term, but many use the two interchangeably.
Absolutely, we wouldn’t have lasted for over 18 years otherwise! Our team has won numerous industry recognitions for best-in-class service offerings, and The Silicon Review named ELIJAH as one of the 50 most trustworthy companies in the United States. Our team has testified extensively in federal and state courts, and have a mile-long list of industry certifications and credentials.
