Key Quotes by David Cohen

  • We thought, hey we can put this into an app and make it available and that’s what we did and so the E-Discovery App was created. And once we went to that effort we thought, why not just make this available to the whole eDiscovery community.
  • I should note that there is in fact a web version, so you can get all that same content at
