"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
From the Back Cover
Digital Forensics for Legal Professionals is a guide to digital technology forensics in plain language. In the authors’ years of experience in working with attorneys as digital forensics experts, common questions arise. This book answers those questions in a clear language that is understandable by non-technical people. The authors offer clear explanations of technical concepts such as unallocated space, forensic copies, timeline artifacts and metadata in layman’s terms – making these concepts accessible to students, attorneys, judges, paralegals and corporate managers.
This book also explains how to determine what evidence to ask for, evidence that could be discoverable, and methods for obtaining it, including examples of relevant subpoena and motion language. Additionally, this book provides the right way to select a qualified expert, what to expect from a qualified expert, and how to properly use experts before and during trial.

Every type of device is covered in terms of how forensic evidence is gathered and then used. This includes computers, USB thumb drives, cell phones, GPS, copiers, Internet activity, search engines, email and social networking sites. Everything anybody does with these technologies has potential to become legal evidence.
This is a book that informs the average person how much things have progressed with digital forensics and why it necessarily means a loss of innocence. There might be consequences for expressing oneself or using technology freely. The book made me think the trend is to be increasingly prudent and protective in what one puts in an email or text message.
The bright side is that you can see that evidence can be made available to prove many types of awful crimes.
As an aside, my objectivity may be limited. I recently used Mr. Daniel as an expert in cell phone/tower in a first degree murder case. This case was dismissed by the district attorney against a client in whose innocence I believed. Mr. Daniel's expertise was in my opinion a critical part of the equation and kept an innocent young man from facing a life sentence.
Experienced attorneys will appreciate the succinct outline of the technologically processes while those more familiar with the medium will find the legal applications useful. This book is easy to follow and understand whether your interest is in criminal or civil law. Recommended.
I work in IT security, and this is one of the most helpful books I've read in quite some time. It helps me understand what attorneys look for and how to use what amounts to "best practices." I've also learned about a few good tools as well. If you're a security manager, you need to buy this book.
For attorneys, even non-technical ones, this book is extremely valuable. It provides quality explanations that aren't jargon-laden, and has lots of current case law references. If you're going after any sort of digital evidence for any reason, then this book should live on your desk.
This book is a page turner, and that's not any slight against the book. It's filled with lots of information that you'll want to keep easily accessible for handy references.
