As a lawyer, it’s crucial to recognize the impact your client’s online activities can have on their case in today’s digital world. Their online behavior can affect the outcome, whether it’s a divorce, personal injury, or criminal case. When individuals share aspects of their daily lives on the internet, it can be used against them in legal proceedings, leading to significant consequences. As such, to maximize your client’s chances of achieving favorable results, it is in your best interest to enlist the help of Advanced Investigations, as our Connecticut Law Firm Computer Forensics Services can help you get the answers you are looking for by using computer forensic techniques. 

What is computer forensics?

Computer forensics involves using various investigative techniques to identify and preserve evidence from computer devices, often for legal purposes. Essentially, private investigators can use computer forensics to retrieve data that can be used in different types of legal proceedings.

Regardless of the legal issue you’re dealing with, it’s vital to monitor your client’s online activity and uncover any hidden information that could affect the outcome of their case. For example, if your client is involved in a contested divorce or child custody battle, they may post negative comments about their ex on social media. This could be seen as acting in bad faith, potentially leading the court to favor the other party. In a personal injury case, a client may claim to be bedridden due to the severe injuries they’ve sustained after an accident. Still, their social media pictures may show otherwise, damaging their credibility. As such, you must take additional measures to monitor their internet activity to ensure they do not post anything that could diminish their ability to achieve a favorable outcome.

How can law firms benefit from computer forensic services?

Like any business that utilizes computer systems to store their valuable data and sensitive information, they can become the targets of cyberattacks. When a law firm’s computer system is hacked, client’s personal and sensitive information and details about their cases may be exposed. This can lead to privacy breaches, reputational damages, and significant business loss. Unfortunately, cyberattacks and data breaches can occur from someone you trusted in your law firm. In these situations, an employee may leak company information or engage in illegal activity on your system. Our team can investigate the websites accessed while using office computers to ensure you do not waste valuable time investigating these matters further when you should focus on building a solid case for your client.
