Alex Murdaugh Case and the Importance of Cell Phone Data

In our last post, we shared details about how cell phone text data was recently used in a civil matter. This time, we are looking at different types of mobile phone data in a criminal case – the Alex Murdaugh murder case.

It’s Time to Evolve.

We have entered a new chapter in eDiscovery regarding how our clients conduct and maintain business communications. The global pandemic has led to a dramatic increase in the use of mobile devices (personal and corporate-issued) and videoconferencing collaboration tools such as Zoom, Teams, and Slack. With the resulting proliferation in the use of short-message applications, we recognized that the legal market did not have an efficient, timely or cost-effective means to collect, analyze and produce evidentiary data stored on smartphones. Until now.

What We Do

ModeOne is a self-service (SaaS) framework which empowers our clients to easily manage case facts and obtain and analyze vital evidence stored on smartphone and short-message chat applications using our automated, defensible, secure, and cost-certain workflow.






We offer the litigation profession’s first automated, fully remote data acquisition service with global reach. Now you can acquire your data 25x faster than traditional, labor-intensive collection processes at any time of day and anywhere the device is situated.






You’ll save time and money by collecting only the application data you need, and protect custodian privacy by excluding personal data such as photos, notes, and emails.






Collected data will be available for analysis within hours of the collection, not the customary days or weeks. Parties can respond to inquiries on an expedited basis and with a clear understanding of case facts to meet strict deadlines.






Flat-fee per unit and volume-based subscription fees provide our clients with full budgetary visibility, allowing them to manage case budgets with cost-certainty.






Human Resources, Regulatory, Compliance, and Internal Affairs professionals require short-message data to help them resolve employment issues, satisfy compliance requirements, and assist with internal investigations easily and cost-effectively.






Our team has over 90 years of experience in eDiscovery and litigation technology with particular expertise in enterprise data security, evidence management, and digital forensics.
