Ten years ago, the process of eDiscovery was one too often characterized by fear, uncertainty, and doubt. Companies feared case-dispositive sanctions for minor errors, runaway collection and review costs, and never-ending litigation holds.

I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
