Access Critical Evidence Today
Cellphones and mobile devices can be critical pieces of evidence in a crime. It can also be challenging to put the puzzle pieces together after a crime has been committed, especially when a person’s life or freedom is at stake.
At LATRO, we bring our expertise in the telecom world, big data, and advanced analytics to cellular forensics to help attorneys and law enforcement sift through the data to ensure they make the suitable case and justice is served.

Cell Phone Forensics
LATRO CFL utilizes the Cellebrite UFED (Universal Forensic Extraction Device) and associated software to either perform forensic examinations of digital devices or analyze the UFD files obtained from previously conducted Cellebrite examinations.
Call Detail Records (CDRs) Analysis & Mapping
LATRO CFL primarily uses CellHawk analytical software to analyze and map cell phone records. During this process, our analysts break down the large amount of data provided by the Mobile Network Operators into useable information that meets the needs of your specific investigation. Geolocating the general location where a phone was likely to have been during its use, pattern recognition, and many types of frequency analysis are just a few of the objectives we attempt to meet when analyzing CDRs.
Whether the case involves forensic examinations and/or CDR analysis, our clients can expect to receive comprehensive analysis, thorough reports, and accurate expert courtroom testimony from LATRO CFL.
LATRO’s experienced investigators assist our attorney clients with their criminal or civil cases by conducting thorough investigations and consulting with them along the way.
