Anything but E-lementary: E-discovery is increasingly becoming an important tool in all matters of law and business
By Sam Boykin Lisa Angel’s client suspected her husband was cheating, but didn’t have any proof. It was a crucial bit of evidence Angel needed in handling the 2009 divorce case. As an attorney at the Charlotte office of Rosen Law Firm it was a situation she had been in many times before. For help, she turned to Capitol City Consulting in Raleigh, which specializes in “e-discovery,” the examination of computers, cell phones, PDAs and other digital devices, usually for litigation purposes. The company was able to retrieve deleted e-mails from the two-timing husband’s computer’s hard drive, which not only showed he was having an affair with a co-worker, but also revealed her identity. “This helped my client’s case immensely,” said Angel, who because of the incriminating e-mails was able to get for her client bigger alimony payments and a lawsuit settlement against the other woman. “E-discovery is a very valuable tool,” said Angel, whose firm specializes in divorces. “You’re not left waiting for the other party to decide what they want to give you.”
