As e-discovery purveys more and more practices and practice areas, it becomes important for solo and small firm lawyers to at least have a cursory understanding of the process. Attorneys can be at a big disadvantage coming up against opposing counsel without the proper knowledge, workflow and tools for e-discovery. Since everyone today texts, emails, uses social media and other electronic forms of communication, almost every case involves electronically stored information (ESI) and therefore requires e-discovery. So where should small firm lawyers go to get caught up?

In this episode of The Legal Toolkit, Jared Correia interviews senior information technology manager Kyle Albert about what ESI is, how solo and small firms can manage e-discovery in-house, and, when outsourcing, what to expect from an e-discovery service provider. ESI is an industry term, Kyle explains, for any digital data including computer documents, emails, or even Facebook messages. Any lawyer researching or gathering electronic data is already doing e-discovery, but maybe not very well. Kyle suggests informative e-discovery blogs and videos, discusses in-house software and vendors, and recommends cost-lowering solutions for law using a service provider. Although many lawyers think that e-discovery is a big budget process that only the AMLaw 100 firms are doing, it’s actually a reality for almost every attorney today.

Kyle Albert is a managing partner at Fox Hound Information Management. He is a senior information technology manager with over 18 years of experience in ESI management, computer networking, mobile and web development, databases, service administration, end user support, and project management. At Fox Hound, Albert conducts forensic acquisition and preservation of ESI, manages document processing operations, and supports e-discovery document review, database administration, and data mining.
