TechnoLawyer Exclusive Interview With Digital WarRoom Co-Founders Dan & Bill Gallivan: "Making eDiscovery Accessible, Safe and Profitable for Law Firms of All Sizes"
THE EDISCOVERY SOFTWARE MARKET The high prices of ediscovery software stem from venture capital investments and weaponization of the ediscovery process by large firms with ample budgets.
A LOW-PRICED ALTERNATIVE Digital WarRoom is owned and managed by brothers Bill and Dan Gallivan who have shunned venture capital. The Digital WarRoom staff has more than 10 years of tenure on average per capita. The net result is ediscovery software priced low enough for use in cases of all sizes. Customers include sole practitioners, litigation boutiques, municipalities, and law firms with fewer than 50 lawyers.
GUARDRAILS INCLUDED Digital WarRoom builds “guardrails” into its software. For example, it’s virtually impossible to make a job-ending, client-losing redaction error. Because Digital WarRoom is a cloud hosted application rather than a web app, it supports native files for document review, which enables litigators to examine metadata.
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.
Andrew Bayer, CEDS
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!
Kevin Glass, CEO
As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
