Champaign - Urbana area clients have trusted ELIJAH for over 18 years to deliver expert digital forensics and electronic discovery solutions.

Although we routinely work on large disputes, many are under the mistaken impression that computer forensics and electronic discovery are not affordable in small cases. Nothing could be further from the truth. Correctly imaging and analyzing a mobile phone, a social media account, computer, or email account can make the difference between winning and losing a case. In distracted driver cases, for example, a smart phone can be the most important piece of evidence in the case, and the reasonable cost of collection and analysis often provides delivers a powerful return on investment.
ELIJAH leverages industry-leading electronic discovery tools to help attorneys manage mountains of electronically stored information (ESI) and find the key evidence to win their cases. For nearly twenty years, we have evolved efficient solutions to ESI challenges arising through the eDiscovery lifecycle, including:

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.
