Legal Eagle Receives Private Investigator Designation

Legal Eagle is excited to announce that our eDiscovery Director, Tim Thames, is now licensed with the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division as a Private Investigator to provide computer forensic services. Under the South Carolina Code of Laws Section 40-18-20individuals “securing evidence to be used in criminal or civil proceedings” must be licensed. This license will allow Tim to preserve electronic data from mobile phones, laptops, and other electronic devices. Having the PI designation supports Legal Eagle’s commitment to providing cutting-edge computer forensics. 

Utilizing ultramodern methods, tools, and techniques including, Cellebrite, Talon, Sumuri, and PinPoint Labs to unlock digital evidence using scientifically accepted and validated processes is key to our success. Tim mentions, “no legal case is immune from computer forensics, and we see cases with a wide array of evidence from simple text messages and email to more complex computer captures." Employees, employers, parties, and witnesses communicate and work in a digital world, creating massive amounts of data that may be vital to your case. Attorneys are obligated to preserve data early-on in a civil or criminal case and Legal Eagle can work with your team to build a successful plan for securing the vital data


Adam Shirley, President of Legal Eagle adds, “our commitment and strong tradition of offering the best solutions to our clients is paramount. “Tim’s pledge for certifications in software applications and strengthening the eDiscovery division is viable for both existing and new clients.”
