"There is so much valuable information contained within this book that I found it was difficult to put down once I started it…Digital evidence is here to stay and the management of that evidence has been made easier to understand with Digital Forensics for Legal Professionals." --Law Technology News, May 2012
"No competent lawyer is foolish enough not to appreciate the pervasiveness of digital evidence, or that digital forensics requires mastery far beyond his ken. Larry Daniels’ book provides the most comprehensive, nuts and bolts resource for trial lawyers on digital forensics. This isn’t the sort of book to skim and stick on the shelf, but to keep on our desk because we’ll need it that often. This is part of the trial lawyer’s bible." --Scott H. Greenfield, Criminal Defense Attorney, New York City
"This isn't your stock standard book focusing on how to do digital forensics, it's an innovative text focusing on preparing technical and legal professionals for dealing with litigation. This is a must-have addition to anyone's digital forensic/legal library." --Jonathan T. Rajewski, Professor of Digital Forensics, Champlain College
"There is so much valuable information contained within this book that I found it was difficult to put down once I started it. Its readability is excellent and I could directly and immediately apply the book's lessons to my day-to-day work within technology, project management, and electronic discovery. As I was finishing the final two chapters, an attorney came to me with a case project that included a digital evidence acquisition with multiple cell phones and, lo-and-behold, I was equipped to speak to the process of the data acquisition and intelligently begin the project due to this book. Digital evidence is here to stay and the management of that evidence has been made easier to understand with Digital Forensics for Legal Professionals." --Law Technology News
