We’ve learned several lessons from our decades managing legal service companies in California. The most notable — real case-changing evidence emerges from PCs, Apple computers, and all types of smartphones. The truth about smartphones and modern computers is that the “Lock Screen” will only lock you out, and there are many levels to the misinformation surrounding hiding or deleting data both online and from your personal devices. It’s incredible how often data retrieved from a cell phone has put a person in a jail cell.
Despite common misconceptions, witty “programmers” or “software developers” are able to access your personal device and its information using their coding skills. While it’s common knowledge that deleting online posts doesn’t completely delete the evidence, the same can be true for deleting files from your device. There are instances when a computer, smartphone, hard drive, or other storage device holds onto pieces that can actually be reconstructed and shown as admissible evidence in a court of law.
First of all, destroying evidence is strictly prohibited in court. If this were to happen (and you were to prove it) you’d be in great shape automatically. However, many phones and computers still operate well after taking tons of damage. Our investigators have turned cases around using damaged devices. An expert investigator like ours will gladly look into a device with a shattered or totally broken screen. In many cases the most important parts of the phone are still intact.
