Phoenix, AZ, June 19, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The digital revolution of the Information Age has brought important changes to how lawyers must conduct discovery and advise their clients concerning Electronic Evidence Discovery (“ED) of Electronically Stored Information (ESI). But even though important changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure relating to ESI-EED matters (later substantially adopted in Arizona’s Rules of Civil Procedure) were made in 2006, a MAJORITY of lawyers are still clueless about the nature, importance and obligations of e-Discovery in the digital age. Many lawyers unknowingly commit malpractice daily in ESI-EED matters. What’s more, in addition to the specter of potential malpractice liability, lawyers ignorant of ESI-EED matters subject themselves to the prospect of court sanctions, state bar ethics violations and client ethics complaints by simply “doing what they’ve always done” as lawyers trained in the 20th Century, before the Information Age.
The panelists, which will include Kelly J. Kuchta, CEO & Founder of Forensics Consulting Solutions, LLC (DiscoverFCS.com), will walk the audience through the major ESI-EED milestones and obligations that arise during a civil litigation matter and the Electronic Discovery Reference Model that is now the standard industry methodology for ESI-EED matters.
