Do you need attorneys?

This depends on the level of review and the end-result required. 

For most "first-cut" reviews, non-attorneys are fine.  These reviews consist essentially of separating the "keep" documents from the "trash" documents. 

In the old days this first level of review was done in-house by support staff (secretaries, paralegals, etc.).  These staff members gathered the documents together and placed them in boxes. 

Today, however, most companies produce their documents on cd's. Documents on cd's can be reviewed by attorneys, staff people, paralegals, or others.

We can discuss the options of a review team made up of lawyers and non-lawyers.
