dtSearch is a popular search and retrieval program that can be a useful tool for searching discovery and creating brief banks.  It can be helpful in viewing different file types (including non-PDF files) even if you do not have the associated program installed on your computer. dtSearch is the search engine utilized in many familiar litigation support programs including Adobe Acrobat Pro, CaseMap and Forensic Tool Kit (FTK, a computer forensic tool).

dtSearch allows users to search native files as well as scanned paper documents that are in a text searchable format. It generates a search index for each folder of materials the user designates and allows one to search the contents of an entire folder regardless of the amount of data or the number of varied file formats. As electronic discovery in federal criminal matters continues to grow in volume and in the variety of formats. dtSearch is a great resource for CJA panel attorneys faced with the daunting task of organizing and searching through their case material.
