Computer and Smartphone Forensics

In our 28 years helping solve cases in California, the single most helpful item is a criminal or other individual’s smartphone or computer. We continue to solve cases quickly and easily through computer and smartphone forensics as these devices collect and maintain countless nuggets of admissible evidence (even after items are “deleted”).

Skilled programmers, like ours at Orange County Private Investigation, never fret at the sight of a locked screen. Even damaged devices can be salvaged and the information retrieved. Poor cell phone usage often leads people directly to a jail cell. Ask our experts what they can do for you based exactly on your needs.

Do I need a computer or smartphone forensics investigation to help my case?

Under certain circumstances, our personal computers, iPhones, Android devices, and other smartphones don’t delete things when we try to get rid of them. Commonly, items are simply hidden but still present on the device. With access to a high-usage device, clever programmers can make their way into a gold mine of data; some of which could directly impact your case or contradict the alibis given earlier on in the proceedings.

We’ll collect all of the relevant details, and potentially reconstruct the findings into admissible evidence for your case.

What if the device is damaged or in poor condition?

The screen of any device is make-or-break for the user. However, it’s not necessary for data retrieval. If most of the device is intact, there’s a great chance that information is still accessible and you could be in luck. On several occasions, we’ve been able to crack cases through damaged devices. These are always worth a shot during an investigation.

If you’re aware of the timing of the damage, this could prove extremely useful in court. Intentionally destroying evidence is strictly prohibited in a court of law.

I am a personal injury attorney who has routinely retained Excell Investigations for my investigative work including process service, defendant and witness locates, and asset searches. They have been very prompt with my orders and always delivered the expected results. At times they have been successful in serving very evasive witnesses. Compared to other companies I have used in the past these guys are top notch. I will continue to use their services for my office’s needs and recommend them to others.
