Harbinger is here to help.

After over a decade of suffering through the available eDiscovery software options, Harbinger was formed to ease the cost burden of electronic discovery and provide a “simple, yet sophisticated” high performance software platform that gets the job done. The design concept of Harbinger eDiscovery was to provide a simple interface unfettered by high-end graphics without limiting the sophisticated features required for a quick, efficient, and flexible review.

What does it mean to really have “flexibility”? Harbinger, a web-based eDiscovery tool, is flexible as well as powerful, “simple, yet sophisticated”. How flexible? Check this out. The Harbinger application is compatible with Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers. It can be run from Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems, as well as mobile devices. It can even be easily powered by 4G hotspots! You can set your review assignments by search, tag, document type, custodian, and more. A personalized dashboard expands the utility of the interface and the grid view adds to the flexibility with multi-level searching, sorting, and filtering. Finally, for more collaborative projects, our engineers have given users the ability to share searches, exclusions, custom views, and folders with other reviewers.

Harbinger offers new proof that we continually strive to provide exceptional outcomes for our clients. All aspects of the Harbinger application have been meticulously developed and designed by attorneys, paralegals, and digital forensic experts to be user-friendly and clutter free. Every click through the data review process has been minimized in order for the critical data analysis time to be maximized. Harbinger has truly taken the process of eDiscovery and data review to a new level! While searching for an eDiscovery tool with robust capabilities to review all types of Electronically Stored Information (ESI), one has to look no further than Harbinger.


Leadership Team

S. Michael McColloch

Michael has followed a logical and rather broad path to his present position and his vast experience in the legal profession has prepared him well. After showing early grit, persistence, and creative defense strategies, Michael parlayed his excellent reputation into even more acclaim as he successfully helped corporate officers navigate through complex cases commenced by powerful institutions including the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and the Environmental Protection Agency. His work ethic and deft legal strategies have allowed him to successfully challenge these institutions at the highest levels of our state and federal court system – even the U.S. Supreme Court. Finally, Michael has been a model community leader by chairing a Blue Ribbon Task Force to help inform the Dallas City Council in their reorganization of the City of Dallas municipal court system and by serving the Highland Park Presbyterian Church as an ordained elder.

Miles Koon

Miles is known for his hands-on approach toward customer relations, and this meshes well with Harbinger’s focus on client relationships. With many years of experience in the communications industry, Miles, and his wife Debbie, founded Nouveau Technology Services over twenty years ago. Nouveau has since expanded into commercial construction, and is a leader in the communications and construction industry. A “Customer’s Interest First” philosophy has spearheaded this growth, and built Nouveau’s excellent reputation for customer service. This type of thinking has helped bring a clear vision of such client issues to Harbinger. Miles has experience with all facets of corporate operations as well as an acute sensitivity to providing value and helping client executives maintain fiscal responsibility. Harbinger is extremely proud of its superb reputation for customer service, to which Miles has greatly contributed.

Karen Cook

Discussion of business issues today consistently includes the significance of regulation and compliance. Fortunately, Harbinger relies on Karen to lead them and their clients through the treacherous waters of regulation as well as enforcement, investigation, and litigation. Karen started her career as an SEC enforcement attorney with extensive experience in cases involving fraud, broker-dealer violations, accounting irregularities, and reporting violations. Later, with a large investment operation, she advised the Board of Directors and affiliates’ senior management on legal and regulatory affairs. That firm was able to avoid any regulatory disciplinary action against it or any of its employees.

Eventually, in private practice, Karen has represented international as well as domestic entities, witnesses, senior officials, and whistleblowers in a variety of different investigations and criminal, civil, and regulatory cases. Her experience in a highly-regulated environment has made her invaluable to Harbinger’s organization and its clientele.

R. Lance Fogarty, CISSP, CCE

For his part, Lance adds an impressive 30 years of experience in Information Technology, Data Center Design and Management, Ethical Hacking, Computer Forensics, and eDiscovery to the effective Harbinger team chemistry. He cut his corporate teeth at some of Dallas’ most well-known companies including NEC, TGI Friday’s, Brierley & Partners, Power Data Services, and Pearle Vision. As an IT Director, Director of Network Services, and Computer Forensic Expert, Lance has had deep responsibilities in the areas of personal, network, computer, and internet security. He also has corporate experience in network, systems, database design, and development, as well as pioneering development of many of the current best practices in Computer Forensics and eDiscovery. Lance continues to use his extensive technical background to maintain a close working relationship in all areas of the Harbinger operation.

Michele Vasquez

Michele has extensive experience in sales and marketing, having served clients in a consultative sales and account management capacity for over 20 years.  After graduating with honors from Texas Tech University with a BBA in Marketing, Michele spent over two decades with New LifeStyles Media Solutions, providing print and digital advertising strategies to clients in the senior housing and care industry.  After launching media markets across the US, she focused her talents on growing the DFW region.  Over the years, she excelled at developing client relationships while focusing on market expansion, strategic planning, and client retention.  Michele is married to her Red Raider college sweetheart and has 3 children. Seeking a career move into the growing IT industry, she joined Harbinger where her business development skills combined with a conviction to always do what is best for the client make her a perfect fit for the Harbinger team.

Jared Maxwell Crank

Jared Maxwell Crank moved to Plano, Texas from Colorado Springs at a young age.  From there he found a semi-permanent home in West Lafayette, Indiana while studying and playing football at Purdue University.  While becoming a full-fledged Boilermaker, he majored in Business Management with a minor in Organizational Leadership and Supervision. Immediately after graduating Jared spent time on the Arizona Cardinals roster, but a devastating injury left him unable to return to his passion. Jared then coupled his on-the-field leadership of football with his off-the-field desire to find the perfect balance and began seeking out what he wanted to become. Jared spent time working in logistics, revenue optimization, quality control, consulting, and process improvement. Taking these experiences, he came aboard Harbinger ready to use his vast knowledgebase and attitude of teamwork to cultivate and turn the operations team into a highly effective group.  1 part Manager, 1 part Motivator, 2 parts Geek, 3 parts Football Fanatic. Too many parts? Not in the world of digital forensics and eDiscovery, where Jared has found his new passion.
