Carrie Dolton is the chair of Hilgers Graben e-discovery division, HG Edge. In that capacity Carrie leads HG Edge’s talented team of document reviewers and oversees the coordination and execution of all aspects of e-discovery, including document preservation, collection, review and production for complex and sensitive litigation matters and regulatory investigations.
Carrie has extensive knowledge of and experience with document review technologies (e.g., Relativity-assisted review tools) that make the document review process faster and less expensive. More importantly, Carrie has pioneered custom workflows and techniques that further drive down review costs and increases efficiency and consistency, which results in a higher quality review at a significant savings to Hilgers Graben clients.
Carrie has earned the trust of clients in many large-scale and high-stakes document reviews. Carrie has successfully led a team in the review of emails from the top leadership of a major company in a $1 billion commercial dispute. She also has led a team that completed an expedited review of over 900,000 documents in under sixty days, in which the team did the entire scope of work (including first-pass review, second-pass review, analysis, redactions, privilege-log creation, and production) at about 30% of the cost of vendor quotes for first-pass review. She also has extensive experience working hand in glove with the lead law firms in significant governmental investigations providing contextual analysis, document summaries, and witness interview preparation collections. No matter the scale, scope or subject matter of the document review, Carrie focuses on conducting a smarter and better review for considerably less than either document review vendors or big law firms.
Prior to returning to her home state of Nebraska and joining Hilgers Graben, Carrie was an associate at DLA Piper in San Diego, California from 2004 to 2008, where she practiced primarily in the areas of product liability and class action litigation, and gained extensive experience in best practices for knowledge management and e-discovery.
Carrie earned her Juris Doctor degree from University of San Diego School of Law, where she served as Executive Editor of the San Diego Law Review. Before attending law school, Carrie graduated from Trinity University with a B.A. in Business Administration.
Carrie currently lives in Omaha with her husband and four children.
