In my other pages, we have discussed what is a computer forensics expert Witness
and what is a computer Forensics Examiner. With so many "professionals" out there,
we at Computerlegalexperts.com have come up with a check list to help you select
the individual or company you feel most comfortable with. Hopefully the questions
below will help with your selection process and please feel free to contact us with
any of your questions about our services.

five days. Although the labor expense would have come to $2,500, another "Engineer"
came in an offered to have him and his buddy do it for $1000 and they would have
it up in three days. Two weeks later, a call was received and the "Engineer" who
offered to do it for less, walked off the job after ten days, leaving a mess. Don't

that are set, just look for the best value that suits your needs.
