One mission drives us: To find and explain the meaning of digital data.

No matter how complex this undertaking is for us, we want it to be simple for you. Simple for attorneys. For clients. For judges and juries. It’s what we do and we’re very good at it. Little data. Big data. In-between data. When you need to get down to the facts, you want to see Red. Contact us whenever you like for any question or need you have. Check us out on social networks, connect to us, friend us. We work hard at being good people and we invite you to get to know us. We want to know you!



We collect data.

Forensic imaging of workstations, servers, laptops, ultrabooks, tablets, smartphones, external media, cloud data. Targeted but forensically sound collection of specific files, folders, emails, or any other data types you need, whether local or on the net.

We analyze data.

Whether you need the deepest level of forensic analysis available, or simpler types of processing, categorization, and interpretation, we just do it. We find and study the digital breadcrumbs left behind and put them back together in a simple and easy-to-understand slice of information you need.

We report and testify.

Clear, convincing, and unshakeable testimony, whether at depo or trial, begins with confidence in the underlying facts gleaned from analysis, confidence in the expert reports we've generated. We do the analysis necessary to generate that confidence, analysis based on an unyielding commitment to finding the most tedious relevant data and properly interpreting that data. Yes, that requires an unending appetite for information that keeps us abreast of the latest technology has to offer; we devour that information and we do it continually.

It also requires the ability to write reports that reduce the most complex, arcane, and tedious information imaginable down to clear content that is easy for laypeople to read and comprehend. We have that ability in spades, which is probably why our reports draw so much praise from clients, attorneys, and judges.

Finally, compelling testimony requires a cool head and the ability to engage judges and juries. We have you covered.

We present.

If you need a body of data converted to another format, or placed online for multi-party review, we can help. If you need a detailed forensic report that explains who did what and when they did it, our expert reports are second to none in accuracy and understandability. Whatever it takes, we’ll output data that explains what the data show and we’ll be sure it’s a friendly process.

We consult.

Up against a problem or need that you feel is over your head? Sound the Red alert and let us come to your rescue. We will focus on getting you to the best possible solution—for you.
