Extract from Lia Majid's article "The Five Types Of People In eDiscovery"
I recently attended the inaugural ACEDS Ohio event. It was an educational program filled with engaging, interactive content. I found that the most interesting content highlighted the variety of approaches towards handling eDiscovery problems. In particular, the workshop at the end was really illustrative.
Audience members were presented a scenario. There is on-going business-to-business litigation. An employee has responsive ESI on their private phone: text messages they sent to other employees and marketing videos. But, the employee doesn't want to give you access to the phone. How would you handle that situation?
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.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!
