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.”
