Company Culture

The Vestige Way

At Vestige, we promote a positive culture called The Vestige Way. It features 28 principles that help guide the values, behaviors and practices of our employees. It explains how we relate to each other, our clients, and our suppliers.  It’s who we are, it’s what sets us apart from other companies, and it’s what drives our extraordinary success.

These  principles rotate on a weekly basis at Vestige.  It’s covered in new employee orientation, weekly wall posters, it’s how we begin each internal meeting, and includes weekly employee email reminders and quizzes.  All these contribute as regular refreshers for each employee to strive to be their very best.


Vestige & Vintage


As with fine wine, over time Vestige Digital Investigations has grown its services and improved with age. But the company would not be where it is today without our loyal clients — and that’s where this story begins…

In 2006, to show our appreciation to our very best referring customers as well as our hard-working staff, Vestige began making custom wines with local winemaker, It’s Your Winery. And what started as a one-time, end-of-year appreciation gift, has turned into a wonderful company tradition.

In 2007 & 2008 Vestige hosted the ESI Awards Gala, a black-tie affair held in recognition of leaders and organizations in the legal industry who have helped Vestige advance the Electronics Evidence field. The event was hosted at the elegant Renaissance Hotel in historic downtown Cleveland in recognition and appreciation for their efforts. The custom bottled signature wines were given as gifts to more than 250 in attendance each year. This included members of the judiciary, attorneys, investigators, paralegals, competitors and the like. Then and now, the wines continue to be very well received by our valued clients and staff alike.

Each July, different staff members are invited to go to the vintner to sample and choose different varieties of wine. Once we select and start our wine, It’s Your Winery staff closely monitor the fermentation process. When we return in 5-9 weeks, our very own signature wine is ready for us to apply our own Private Reserve labels, then share and enjoy.
