Accolades for Arkfeld eDiscovery Training

Gained Deep Understanding

Gordon D. Cruse, Esq., Certified Family Law Specialist

If anyone needs to gain an in depth understanding of the e-discovery process then this is the course I would definitely recommend. Thanks to this course I have gained a deep understanding of how to manage an e-discovery project, I have become aware of issues to consider at each stage of the process and I have enhanced my functional knowledge of how to collect, process, review and produce electronically stored information.

Michael's Course is a Must

Joe Maio, California Department of Justice, Technical Support Staff

Michael Arkfeld's breadth of knowledge on the universe of ESI law, and his ability to practically and clearly communicate that knowledge, made the information presented in his online eDiscovery and Digital Evidence Course (and related publications) both easily attainable and immediately applicable to our day to day case management and office operations. Not only did Michael open our eyes to the liability issues related to ESI, but through his tips and advice for on the ground application, Michael also changed the way we practice law. Whether a seasoned attorney, a new admitted to the bar, or simply as one who is collaterally involved where legal discovery and ESI are at issue, Michael's course is a must.

Exactly What I Was Looking For

This is exactly what I was looking for in content, and the written materials and convenient learning environment greatly exceeded my expectations. I am a judge in California who has encountered ESI issues, and I became convinced that neither I nor most of the attorneys before me know much about the subject. This class has helped me tremendously in developing an understanding and working knowledge of the area, and the written materials will be extremely helpful in the future. While my enthusiasm would lead me to publicly endorse the course and provide a testimonial, my ethical obligations do not -- which is why I answered the next question "no" (next question was "Can we use your name with your comments?")

Best Online eDiscovery Course Available

I believe you have the best online eDiscovery course available. I have searched for other eDiscovery courses when preparing discovery requests and have not found anything else that compares to yours. Wonderful course and extremely beneficial.
