In 2004, before I joined Balch, I worked on a complex case that required extensive and, at the time, advanced e-discovery. We found the smoking guns and won the case, but the cost of the e-discovery was crippling to the client. I learned an important lesson there. As a lawyer, and especially as an e-discovery lawyer, it is easy to lose sight of the big picture in our zeal to ferret out the truth and to win. Today, I approach e-discovery with this lesson firmly in mind. Everything we do must be client-centered, and in the best interest of our clients.
