Thank you for considering the Law Office of Michael Cernyar. The anonymity of the Internet generates a haven for lawbreakers who perpetrate their deception by disappearing into cyberspace, often disguising themselves with stolen identities or hiding behind fabricated personas. Many law enforcment agencies and many law firms are not equipped to assist those with Internet issues. Michael Cernyar is extremely good at flushing out the culprits.

Because of his exceptional Internet and law background Michael Cernyar has been interviewed in media broadcasts and articles, including, The Wall Street Journal, America Now with Leeza Gibbons & Bill Rancic, The Verdict with Paula Todd, KABC Los Angeles, KGO (San Francisco's ABC affiliate), KKSF Gil Gross Show Talk Radio 910, the e-Commerce Times, Tech News World, and e-Commerce Law & Policy. I have been invited to participate in the Chapman School of Law Nexus Symposium, Privacy And The Internet: Is The Law Adapting As Fast As We Are? The Legal Implications of Technological Advancements

Computers and the Internet are the evidence scene of the new milleneum. The digital evidence leaves trails that can be followed. The integrity of the trail is always a concern. Initially the digital trail appears to be authentic and straightforward. However, the trail can corrupted, either inadvertently by machine error or deliberately by a sophisticated user. That corruption is typically not revealed on the surface so a good Internet forensics investigator will take the time and energy to do a complete analysis. Many Internet attorneys and forensic investigators don't have the know how or the time to drill down into the digital trail to determine what really happened. We'll take the time necessary to get the right answers for your legal matter.

Attorney Michael K. Cernyar is a Los Angeles, California lawyer who successfully takes on seemingly impossible cases. Since each situation is different, our firm represents both victims and defendants. Other law firms may pressure clients to make choices based upon what's best for the firm, at our firm your case is decided with choices best for you. We are not intimidated by digital evidence and no other attorney knows computer forensics and evidence better.

Computers and the Internet are the crime scene of the new milleneum. In computer crimes and cyber crime there is either: (1) a tremendous rush to judgment since many crimes are committed anonymously and the typical law enforcement officer does not understand computer forensics; or (2) law enforcement does not have the knowledge and/or time to competely investigate the computer crime, cyber crime and/or the Internet.

The typical attorney does not have the background and/or knowledge to successfully represent a person entangled in a computer crime, a cyber crime or an Internet crime. Someone affected by such crimes needs the expertise of a strong computer crime attorney.
