Michael D. Wexler to Speak at Chicago Chapter of the Federal Bar Association

Electronic Evidence: Gather It in the Field, Get It to the Jurors


Chicago, IL

Dirksen United States Courthouse
219 South Dearborn Street
Room 2119, Courtroom of Hon. Judge Edmond E. Chang

Join Seyfarth Trade Secrets Chair Michael D. Wexler at the Chicago Chapter of the Federal Bar Association at the Dirksen United States Courthouse on Friday, April 10, 2015.  Mr. Wexler will be joined by the Hon. Edmond E. Chang and Executive Director of ETS Intelligence, LLC, David Ratkovich to show attendees how to gather, preserve, and authenticate digital evidence from a smart phone, and get it admitted to prove a case in a trial or evidentiary hearing. Attendees will observe simulations showing how technical consultants should harvest digital evidence from a device, preserve it, and analyze it. That’s followed by a simulated expert witness examination that offers incendiary text messages and video footage into evidence, admits each into the record, and publishes them to the jurors.

This program also features the Northern District of Illinois’ in-court digital evidence display system and the Jury Evidence Recording System (JERS) that jurors use during deliberations, allowing you to see how each works so you can build it into your practice and maximize their use at your next trial or evidentiary hearing.

A complimentary reception with food and beverages will follow the presentation so you can meet and speak with the panelists.
