Hello again, USAFRet. Good to hear from you again. I have NO background in any investigative field. Only licensed in multiple finance (Series 4, 6, 7, etc). I only work with computers, nothing more...although at 57 I think I'd ROCK a trenchcoat (only on a very foggy night). I'll tell you, it seems to be a possible new line of income for what PC techs do. I think for the couple I've done this year, it provided proof that it was (or wasn't) time to discuss their relationship. You're dead-on about getting ripped apart on any stand to testify. Nothing better/worse than a great attorney.
when i was 100% in finance, an avenue of income for the brokerage was to provide expert witness testimony to bolster FINRA arbitration claims. i guess all we have is our resume to give any weight to anything I might find on a hard drive.
