Electronic Discovery in Divorce
Attorney Tim Conlon has frequently lectured on the topic of electronic discovery in divorce, to the American Association for Justice, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, and, most recently, to the Massachusetts Bar Association's Family Law Section. Electronic information is becoming more and more relevant in family law. Drawing on experience in computer forensics that goes back to the 80's, Tim Conlon is one of a handful of family law attorneys who have published and presented seminars on the subject of electronically stored information as evidence in a divorce case.
The firm has handled a variety cases involving computer forensics, data seizures and the detection of electronic surveillance (spyware) by spouses. We have used electronic evidence in divorce litigation to document marital misconduct (a cheating spouse) and financial misconduct (hidden assets), and consult with attorney's both within Rhode Island and throughout the country on electronic evidence issues.

Rhode Island Clergy Abuse: 2003 Case of the Year
Attorney Tim Conlon was one of three attorneys presented with the 2003 award for Case of the Year by the Rhode Island Trial Lawyers Association. The award was presented to attorney Conlon to "acknowledge efforts in connection with the Rhode Island clergy abuse cases."

The settlements totaled $14.25 million and were negotiated with the assistance of Commonwealth Mediation and Conciliation of Brockton, Massachusetts.
Experienced Family Law Attorney, Practicing Throughout Rhode Island
Additionally, lawyers have traditionally "copied" clients on incoming and outgoing documents in the ordinary course. Today though, the carbon copy has gone the way of the dinosaur, but most firms still stuff envelopes and mail clients copies of the case papers during the course of the litigation.
Although you do need copies of documents, the mail is slow and hard copies lead to a mountain of sensitive documentation. Today's litigation can involve reams of documents that are exchanged quickly, and piles of paper become useless if not properly organized. It is expensive, slow, and inefficient.
Our firm has decided to give our clients continuous, real-time access to their files.
We have established an online client portal that allows clients 24/7 access to case papers. A motion comes into our office by mail or fax, and it is scanned and filed in the ordinary course, but the system tells you when a new document has been received, and you can review it on your smartphone, tablet or computer ─ anywhere you have net access.
Our extensive experience with family law matters can give you the confidence you need at a challenging time of your life. We make every effort to be available to you no matter where you are located in the state. If it is more convenient for you to meet via Skype, iChat or other communication methods, we can accommodate those needs as well.
