The founder of Loehrs & Associates, Tami Loehrs, is a forensics expert who brings more than 30 years of legal and computer experience, as well as hundreds of hours of computer forensics training to the company. Loehrs grew up in a computer savvy family and spent many hours playing with colored punch cards where her father worked as a systems analyst. In spite of the influence, Loehrs chose a career as a paralegal, and through the years used her natural computer talents to assist in her legal work in probate and estate planning, tax and corporate law, insurance defense, civil and criminal law. Eventually, Loehrs realized that her unique combination of computer knowledge and legal experience facilitated communication between two industries that often couldn’t understand each other.
As a mother with two children, Loehrs made the decision to go back to school where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Information Systems. Shortly after graduating, Loehrs founded Law2000, a successful computerized litigation support company offering the legal community information technology support, computerized trial services, e-discovery and computer forensics services. Her work with the IT division gave Loehrs hands-on experience in almost every aspect of computers and networking while the computer forensics division was growing. Eventually, the high demand for computer forensics became the company’s only focus.
Today, Loehrs’ professional computer forensics training spans nearly every aspect of the industry. She holds numerous industry certifications including EnCase Certified Examiner (EnCE), Access Data Certified Examiner (ACE), Certified Computer Forensic Examiner (CCFE) and Certified Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI). In addition, Loehrs holds a Private Investigator Agency License in the State of Arizona, which requires a minimum of 6,000 hours of investigative experience.
Loehrs has been hired as a computer forensics expert on hundreds of cases and testified over ninety times in State and Federal Courts throughout the United States, several U.S. territories, Canada and England. She has been a speaker for many organizations nationwide discussing computer forensics and electronic discovery. As a result of her successful work in the field of computer forensics, Loehrs has also appeared on television shows in the United States, Japan and New Zealand.
When Loehrs doesn’t have her head buried in a computer or is appearing in court, she’s an outdoor sports enthusiast who likes spending time with her husband cycling, running, swimming, diving, skiing, doing cross-fit and mud races. She is a member of USAT and consistently crushes the back of the pack in sprint triathlons. In 2014, Loehrs earned the qualification of Divemaster after logging over 100 dives in oceans all over the world. But perhaps her greatest love is rescuing big dogs; she currently has four of them.
