About the Author

Ms. Zeigler has been a practicing attorney since 1984, and is an experienced federal litigator. For many years, she represented Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustees in complex cases involving asset concealment and evidence destruction. She is also an award-winning writer and speaker on law-related topics, and is a former editor of The Houston Lawyer magazine. She has been in Marquis Who’s Who in American Law since 1993 and in Who’s Who in America since 2001.

Ms. Zeigler was a citizen volunteer with the Houston Police Department, supporting investigations at the Juvenile Sex Crimes Unit from 2008 until 2013. She is a graduate of the HPD and FBI (Houston) Citizens’ Academies.

Mr. Rojas (CISSP, DFCP, CCFP) had over 25 years of information security and digital investigations experience. He worked with large data collections, involving collections of data in complex automated manufacturing environments, where provisions for litigation holds did not exist and had to be developed on the spur of the moment to accommodate a notice of litigation.

He was a member of the Scientific Working Group on Digital Evidence and of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. He received numerous certifications and recognition awards. He also served as an advisor to the Dean of the School of Computer Science and Engineering of the University of Houston Clear Lake on curriculum and education matters. Mr. Rojas passed away in late 2014.
