The best decision I made for my client was deciding to us Lars and Guardian as an expert. That decision completely changed the trajectory of the case and the motions that we filed. The government realized its many challenges in proving their case after securing Lars as an expert for trial, . Ultimately, that was dismissed. I know that I would not have had a favorable outcome for my client without Lars' help and expertise.
I tout unreservedly the services of Guardian Digital Forensics.
As counsel for the lead defendant in a 13 defendant federal prosecution under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, I relied implicitly on Guardian Digital Forensics and its president, Larry Daniel, to parse and organize a mass of digital discovery (exceeding one terabyte); to segregate the portions pertinent to each defendant; and to interpret the evidence (following an agreement among counsel to waive potential conflicts).
Guardian very ably interpreted the inculpatory or exculpatory value of the evidence as to each defendant. Moreover, it examined the evidence with an eye to revealing diminished reliability through any flaws in the manner of its seizure or reproduction.
Guardian was also markedly less expensive than the several alternative experts I consulted.
Lars Daniel assisted me with a case that involved the examination of over 15 computers, server data, and online backups. His work was performed in a thorough and excellent manner, and he was prompt and professional. I was impressed with the insights Lats brought to the case, and his ability to explain technical concepts with great clarity and precision. He was required to explain his findings to a public board of commissioners and me, neither of which possessed a great deal of technical knowledge about the subject matter. Nevertheless, his presentation was articulate and understandable by all.
I would recommend Lars and his team when you have a case involving any form of digital evidence.
