I walked into our office this morning to the sight of deflated balloons and the remnants of Exterro’s celebratory E-Discovery Day cake in our kitchen area. But while visually a bit dispiriting, I’m choosing to bask in the afterglow of a fantastic day yesterday.
From its inception, E-Discovery Day has always been about recognizing the efforts of everyone involved in this profession. We originally billed it as a day to celebrate the growing and vital role E-Discovery plays in the legal process, and envisioned it as a vendor-neutral, industry wide event. In 2015 the events mostly took place online, but we got feedback that while the sessions were educational and valuable, people wanted to gather and interact in person. Thus, this year organized “meet ups” were scheduled.
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!

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.
