Comprehensive legal defense for computer-based charges

Computer or mobile-device-related crimes are some of the most aggressively prosecuted crimes today. Federal and state law enforcement officials, including the FBI, use their vast resources to investigate and prosecute these cases to the fullest extent of the law. Any member of society can be a target of these investigations, including doctors, accountants, teachers, lawyers, and other professionals. Being convicted of a computer, internet, or cybercrime can expose you or your loved ones to severe prison time, irreparable damage to your reputation, and other serious penalties. With life-altering consequences like these, it is of the utmost importance to secure effective legal counsel that knows what these criminal investigations entail.

Computer, internet, and cybercrime investigations oftentimes involve complicated legal issues, such as preservation, chain of custody, verification, and documentation. Law enforcement agents frequently use digital forensic experts skilled in the collection of digital evidence. These experts use unique data collection tools, such as EnCase for computer forensics, Cellebrite for cellphone forensics, and Blackthorn for GPS device forensics. The type of tool used depends on the sort of digital device in question. Storage devices, email, peer to peer (P2P) software, cellular and cell tower, and GPS are all unique digital mediums. An effective criminal defense strategy must be able to distinguish these mediums and develop a unique strategy.
