How Cloud Document Evidence Supports Your Case
Depending on your case, you might want to focus your review on Google document evidence. Our cloud forensics investigator will assist you with strategies for how to use the electronic evidence effectively for your type of case. For example:
Business Litigation: spreadsheets for business valuation concerns, Google Doc and Sheets in contract disputes, and more.
Family Law: PDFs of account statements to identify hidden assets and accounts.
Intellectual Property: metadata attached to various documents and file types can help prove your superior rights in patent, copyright, or trademark disputes.
We use targeted Discovery Protocols to limit the data you need to review and improve your ability to reach prompt settlements.

Cloud Documents Evidence Admissibility & Authentication
In federal court, evidence admissibility is governed by the federal rules of evidence. Consequently, assuming a given electronic document is relevant and not barred based on hearsay rules, it must be authenticated in order for admission. Authenticating these documents will demonstrate that they have not been altered and come from the stated source. Our computer forensics will establish the authenticity of your electronic document evidence.
