Solving unique project needs of some of the world’s leading law firms and corporations.

Our Story

Evidence that tells a story and finds the truth!

Our Story

Digital Strata first opened its doors in 1994 as an IT services firm. As times changed, the company switched its focus and, in 2001, started one of the first internal eDiscovery/forensics teams with Cisco Systems. Since then, Digital Strata has evolved as a boutique firm providing premier eDiscovery and Digital Forensics services and developing tools and processes to solve the unique project needs of some of the world’s leading law firms and corporations.

For more than 20 years, Dan Fischler and Nick Harris have upheld their mission to draw out data evidence that tells a story and finds the truth.

"Our firm retained Digital Strata to organize and evaluate a massive amount of data maintained by our client’s vehicle management system. The project required our consultant, Nick Harris, to obtain and learn the bespoke software program which ran the system. Nick went over and aboard with fast turnaround of ever more detailed analyses to aid our preparation for depositions and, ultimately, for a successful outcome on summary judgment." - Tracy Moran, McCormack Suny LLC
