He then spent 15 years developing expertise and thought leadership in the emerging field of eDiscovery, particularly the identification and use of electronic data as evidence in litigation, and has helped countless attorneys leverage technology to make their own trial practices faster and more efficient. Gary then returned to civil practice before joining Roger G. Jain & Associates.
