Eric Robi founded Elluma Discovery in Los Angeles in 2002 to provide computer forensic expert witness services for litigators. Since that time, the technology industry has experienced exponential growth and has become deeply ingrained into the practice of law. As we have seen the complexity and volume of data rise, Elluma has continually evolved the techniques and tools used to analyze and process the e-Discovery so as to best serve our clients’ needs.
We offer an integrated approach to e-Discovery and computer forensics.
As the volume of email, documents and data increases, we have continually expanded our approaches and tools to address our clients’ goals. By integrating e-Discovery and computer forensics we can effectively tackle a wide range of needs. Computer forensics is an excellent tool to help determine specific actions an individual took on a computer or device. Our computer forensic analysts help solve the questions of who did what, when, where and how.
On the other hand, our e-Discovery consultants can help when there is a larger volume of data from servers, multiple computers parties. Our processes and technology is designed to ‘cut to the chase’ and determine what information is truly important in a case.
We consult with every client and provide detailed recommendations based on over 20 years combined experience. Unlike other e discovery service providers, we don’t just seek to host your data. We actively participate in your case as your trusted advisor and guide you through the complex maze of targeted production demands, case strategy, deposition preparation, document search review and analysis and finally expert testimony.
We understand that litigators are not technology experts. Our job is to proactively guide and teach what you need to know to litigate your case as effectively as possible.
