    I've known Scott Sachs for quite some time now. Every interaction with him I've encountered, he's been a consummate professional, insightful, and very knowledgeable. I unhesitatingly endorse and recommend Mr. Sachs for any legal work you might require. But especially in the area of evidence preservation, spoliation, and discovery disputes.
