“I’ve worked with both Daley and Cary on a number of  Federal complex litigation and  electronic discovery  matters, most involving voluminous documents.  Unfailingly responsive,  as is their capable staff,  they have become the people  I automatically turn to now on litigation support matters.”

- Michael A. Harwin, P.C., Tucson, AZ 

"I have used the services of Behind The Gavel in a multi-defendant gang case involving more than 20 wiretaps.  Their staff's work product allows me to review 75,000 pages of discovery and 35,000 wiretapped conversations by defendant, other party, date, event, document type, phone number and other search parameters.  In addition I am able to point and click on specific recorded conversations of interest.  Their assistance in analyzing discovery is invaluable on this type of case."    

- Scott Quinlan, W Scott Quinlan Law, Fresno, CA

"The place to go for those who want to know.  In the days of digital discovery, different computer programs, court presentations, summarizing evidence and trial preparation, Behind the Gavel professionals are hardworking, knowledgeable, and know how to get results.”

- Mark Vovos PS, Attorney at Law, Spokane, WA

"BTG did an impressive job in a twenty-two (22) defendant, federal, criminal gun running case.  I could sort by defendant, by firearm, by vehicle, by store---by almost any topic.  I was impressed how quickly they organized a large amount of disclosure.  They must have keep some poor employee chained to his desk to have organized it so quickly.  I think their utility lies in the fact that I did not have to spend weeks reading, learning and outlining tons of irrelevant disclosure.  After their first tutorial, I could within minutes focus on the disclosure that directly impacted my client."

- S. McNamara, Attorney At Law, Tucson, Arizona

"Daley and Cary have been supporting a complex (21 defendant) case in which I am involved.  Their ability to extract relevant information from a huge amount of discovery, organize that material and present it in an easily accessible format has been invaluable."  

- A. Bates Butler III, Law Office of A. Bates Butler III, LLC, Tucson, Arizona

"Daley has been supporting a case that I am participating in (62 defendants).  It involves massive discovery and records at the trial and appellate level.  His skill at organizing, simplifying and making ease of access for factual and legal analysis are exceptional.  I wholeheartedly recommend Daley and his services."

- Walter Ayers, Ayers Law Firm, P.L.L.C., Spokane, WA

"I worked with Cary for several years on many complex white collar cases. He is adept at organizing document heavy discovery cases, which is invaluable for time-crunched attorneys looking to identify the issues. The benefits of his help outweigh the costs-simple as that."

- John B McEntire IV, Federal Defenders of Eastern WA & ID

"I also give Daley an enthusiastic two thumbs up. He has been happy to go the extra mile. He has made himself available after hours. He has a rare ability to extract the relevant info from gobs of reports. He is talented and diligent."

- Phillip Wetzel, Attorney at Law, Spokane, WA

"Daley is experienced, skilled, efficient and a pleasure to work with. His assistance to me and on mega cases increased my effectiveness in representing my clients in a more efficient manner."

- Steve Hormel, Hormel Law Office, L.L.C., Spokane, WA 

"I have worked with them on several large discovery cases, including Title III wiretaps.  They make discovery searchable in great time saving way.  Each defendant has links to his connections with co-defendants, wiretap calls and to the discovery pages where they are referenced... Our judges have no hesitation appointing them as CJA funded experts and the 9th Circuit budget attorneys know all about them too."
