There was a time where I attended and presented at as many conferences, workshops, and colleges that would have me as a guest.  What a great time it was!  But now...I've become really busy..


For casework, I am extremely picky, open to considering complex cases, and only work few cases at a time.  My legal matter engagement rate is $450/hour with a $10,000 retainer.  Fewer cases result in maximum time and availability for the cases with best results. USA clients only.  Currently booked with casework and expected to last through 2024.

For peer-review work, feel free to inquire as I regularly accept peer-review work (aka: identifying errors, mistakes, and omissions in opposing expert's reports).  My rate is $450/hour with a 5 hour minimum.

Presentations and keynotes

For presentations, including keynotes, I am available a few times a year, and I generally book myself for the year early. If you'd like me to present at your event, feel free to send me a message.  My rates are generally $5,000 per day CONUS* and $8,000 per day OCONUS* plus expenses (negotiable depending upon location and 501 non-profit status).

Corporate workshops & training

Currently booked out for 2024!  But please inquire if you'd like a workshop or seminar to schedule at the next opportunity. Workshops are customized to the needs of your organization.

Writing and ghost writing

I have two books in progress right now and trying to get them published as soon as I can.  One is "Stepping into the Breach," another is "The DFIR Investigative Mindset," and the third is "Placing the Suspect Behind the Keyboard."  I will be writing a 3rd edition of the X-Ways Forensics Practitioner's Guide after these books are completed next year.

I no longer ghost write. I ghost wrote one full book, co-ghost wrote (is that a real phrase?) more than a half dozen others.  Personally, ghost writing is not for me as it doesn't allow me to write in my persona with my opinions...from now, all writings are in my name and my voice.

Travel FAQs

I've presented and/or worked cases in 32 states in the USA and in 8 countries across 3 continents.  The only limitations (and I hate to say this) are countries currently involved in conflict.
