iDS PRO BONO PROGRAM

MISSION STATEMENT

iDS believes that every person with a viable case deserves to have equal justice under the law.

Electronically stored information (ESI) is a crucial part of determining the merits of a case. We believe that it is essential for all parties to have access to this type of evidence – including the poor, the disadvantaged, and other individuals or groups unable to secure legal assistance to address critical problems. We therefore created the “iDS Pro Bono Program” to assist attorneys with the ESI aspects of their pro bono cases.

Our Commitment

  • iDS is committed to collaborate with law firms, non-profit organizations, and corporate in-house legal departments to provide quality legal services through pro bono work that serves the low-income community.
  • iDS is committed to provide pro bono services for up to 1% of the previous calendar year’s gross revenues.
  • iDS is committed to involve leadership (directors and managing directors) in pro bono activities.
  • iDS is committed to provide each of our pro bono matters the highest quality of services.

Pro Bono Services

  • eDiscovery services including data collections, analytics, early case assessment, data hosting, and productions.
  • Consulting and professional services for all business lines including information governance, structured data
    analytics, project management, digital forensics, and cybersecurity.
  • Subject matter expertise including analysis, reports, and expert testimony.

Our Program

  • iDS selectively accepts cases based on our ability to provide a high quality level of service.
  • iDS does not provide legal advice. We work with, and are engaged by, existing legal teams. We will match rates
    according to that team (i.e., if they provide free services, then we will provide free services; if they provide
    discounted services, then we will discount).
  • iDS is committed to providing the necessary time and expertise. iDS may seek reimbursement, or set limits, for outof-
    pocket costs such as consumption fees*, shipping, media (i.e. hard drives), and travel expenses.
    * iDS will do its best to get consumption fees (i.e. Relativity) donated but cannot guarantee this.

Application Process

  • Submit an Intake Form.
  • The Form will be reviewed by the iDS intake review team.
  • If the application is accepted for consideration, an intake interview call will be scheduled.
  • iDS will do its best to have final decisions made within 10 days of the submission of the intake form.
