The blending of our businesses will allow all of us to continue to focus on our core strengths while providing the full-range of professional services.

Capitol Digital Document Solutions and Califorensics have announced they are joining forces. Captiol Digital is Sacramento’s largest litigation support service provider, serving the needs of law firms, corporations and government agencies with copying, digital scanning, translation and eDiscovery services.

Califorensics is a top-tier computer forensics and eDiscovery firm in Roseville, led by former FBI Agents and non-practicing attorneys. The combination of the two firms, through the purchase of Califorensics by Capitol Digital, yields a company of nearly 50 professionals able to respond to law firm needs from the early consultation regarding evidence or discovery, to the capture of data, analysis, testimony and finally, hosting of data for review.

Dave Wilkinson, President and Co-Owner of Capitol Digital, commented that “This transaction unveils the next chapter in the evolving story of what began for us in 1997 as a traditional copy services firm, and how it has successfully reinvented itself, staying in front of the industry curve and investing in top talent".

Lucas Mageno, Founder and Co-Owner of Capitol Digital, added "We have purchased a powerhouse boutique data forensics firm, staffed with highly trained examiners and expert witnesses, experienced analysts and seasoned leaders in one of the hottest industries in the global marketplace.” 

This combination of two already thriving firms of this sort has become a common site in the industry, usually resulting in a company better equipped to take on larger litigation matters with faster response times.

Don Vilfer, President of Califorensics, will continue to lead the firm’s digital forensics practice. Don is an attorney by background and formed the firm 12 years ago after leaving the FBI at the urging of local lawyers who saw a need for his services. The firm has since grown to serve attorneys and businesses nationwide in complex digital investigations, often tied to complex litigation.

Don said it was the increasing demand for high volume eDiscovery services that made Capitol Digital a logical fit for combining forces. “While we are the best in the business at digital forensics, the sheer volume of data, often dozens of terabytes of it, puts strains on our eDiscovery systems that Capitol is already equipped and skilled to handle. The blending of our businesses will allow all of us to continue to focus on our core strengths while providing the full-range of professional services while controlling costs.”

For the foreseeable future, Capitol Digital will maintain both of the current offices in The Fountains at Roseville and 555 Capitol Mall, Sacramento.
