As a systems developer, he is intimately familiar with the internals of computer systems, both operating systems and application programs. His systems design and development experience encompasses engineering and accounting applications as well as other functions for business and government clients.

    As a certified computer forensics specialist (EnCase Certified Examiner and GIAC Certified Forensic Examiner), Hunter has established credentials in the fields of computer forensics and electronic discovery. These professional certifications attest to his skills and experience and also add to the credibility and reliability of his reports and testimony.

    He has testified before federal and state courts in more than a dozen civil and criminal cases as well as in arbitration and administrative hearings. He has been accepted as an expert in both computer science and computer forensics, and has testified in cases involving patent infringement, contract disputes, criminal charges, and domestic matters.

    As an experienced software engineer, Hunter has evaluated source code written in various languages in numerous intellectual property cases for evidence of copyright or patent infringement or trade secret misappropriation. Hunter forensically analyzes data in personal computers, networks, and external storage devices to determine what was done, who did it, and when. His forensic work also includes an analysis of internal and file system metadata to establish trails of creation, alteration, and deletion of documents, as well as tracing document accesses, copying and destruction. Hunter’s video forensics cases often involve the analysis of video surveillance records to assist in determining technical validity and interpreting what a given record actually proves.
