ELIJAH is who clients turn to when their freedom is on the line.
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 substantial experience in police-related litigation.
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 forensic 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.
