DONALD A. WOCHNA formed the E-Data Law Group LLC almost 19 years ago which is a consortium of experts that design, build, and defend advanced technological solutions to legal challenges in litigation, healthcare, audit, privacy and security issues. The vision of the E-Data Law Group LLC is to use electronic data to make the practice of law proactive. He obtained one of the first civilian licenses for computer forensic software, and began a business identifying, preserving, extracting, analyzing, and producing electronically stored information, including content, metadata, and artifacts. Mr. Wochna earned his B.S. degree from Cal State Long Beach and his J.D. degree from The Law School, University of Chicago. He has written hundreds of articles related to ediscovery, big data, analytics, and the challenges to the legal profession raised by electronic information systems. His books include E-discovery: Making the Computer Your Best Witness, published by Ohio State Bar Association; and he is a frequent and lively speaker regarding electronic data issues. Mr. Wochna has testified before the Advisory Committee on amendments to the Rules of Civil Procedure, and has been influential in shaping the process by which large sparse datasets are defensibly searched to produce relevant information without reliance upon agreed-upon search terms.
