About Electronic Discovery for Small Cases: Managing Digital Evidence and ESI

  • Process, view, search, and analyze a mixed collection of files

  • Learn about emerging ESI trends

Praise for Electronic Discovery for Small Cases: Managing Digital Evidence and ESI

"E-discovery colleagues Bruce Olson and Tom O'Connor have written a marvelous new book entitled Electronic Discovery for Small Cases. . . . In this book, which will only take you an hour or two to read, you get an incredibly helpful overview of the products that are out there to help you with small cases. Need to collect evidence, review it, store it in the cloud, produce it and present it in court? There are affordable products for all of these functions and the authors take you through them one by one. Very helpful indeed are all the screenshots, which allow you to see not only what the product can do but give you the sense that, 'Hey, I can do that.' Prices are clearly stated along with the capabilities (and limitations) of each product. If you are an attorney with 'garden variety' cases involving e-discovery, this book is indispensible."--Sharon D. Nelson, Esq., president of Sensei Enterprises, Inc.

"Many attorneys' image of e-discovery is that of tens of thousands documents being combed by a phalanx of associates looking for 'smoking gun' evidence and privilege documents; and costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. This is the type of work that only large firms can perform for major clients. In actuality, most e-discovery in this country conforms to the 'small case dilemma' model; i.e., e-discovery that needs to be performed in a case that has a low-dollar value for a client with a limited budget. For any attorney that needs to perform small case dilemma e-discovery, Bruce A. Olson and Tom O'Connor's book Electronic Discovery for Small Cases is a necessary read."--Thomas R. McLean, MD, JD, FACS, ESQ, Third Millennium Consultants, LLC
