Computer and IT Forensics | DFI Forensics


Our team combines a wide variety of training, experience, skill and knowledge with the best digital forensics and incident response tools to provide expert level results in every case.

Expertise is about more that what we know.  It’s about our desire and passion for our field that drives us to acquire the latest knowledge about cutting edge technology so that we are ready to answer new questions and meet every new case with the best solutions.

Expertise means we get it done right for you.


Providing a valuable service requires us to charge a fee but that doesn’t mean we can’t do so fairly.

We believe very strongly in the principle of certainty of costs which is why we strive to provide our clients with a written proposal and quote prior to engagement so that they can make an informed decision. 

If engaged on the basis of that quote, we don’t charge any more than that amount, regardless of the time spent to get the job done right.  

That is our commitment to you.


We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our clients and that is reflected in the service that we provide.

Taking a client-centered approach to all that we do has been the cornerstone of our success.  We care and it shows. 

Our client interactions are guided by a strong sense of integrity and our clients are given honest, expert advice from the outset so that they can make informed decisions regarding their case and our services and they remain updated and informed throughout all aspects of an investigation.
