How's that going to help him? Those certifications are meant for IT professionals responsibile for policy and program creations, implementations etc. That alone is a full time job, not to mention they require proven experience already and years in the field.
Seriously I've been seeing so many posts with similar topics lately with the Original Posters seeking an advantage over other candiates in an unrelated iT field if they get an IT certifications. This way of thinking is flawed. IT will not give you any advantage.
I just recently took part in a IR tabletop exercise and we had legal in the room. By the time any task was assigned to legal there were 10+ IT people involved, 2 CERT groups and 2 levels of CISO.
Point I'm making, stick to your field and become the best lawyer you can be, focus on the law side and try to excel at that. The IT pros are doing the same on their side.
I'd contact one of these guys and ask about their career path:

Microsoft has a Digital Crimes Unit where that is a reality. I've seen their hiring requirements and they look for people with legal backgrounds. Having that forensic mindset plus cyber knowledge is the sweet-spot to get in to those kind of roles.
Perhaps take a look at JDMurray's post where he goes over the EnCE certification:

Phemmisky, you want edge, I'll show you edge... Try this on for size: GCFE
Computer crimes are big and will come a time where either prosecuting or defending a suspected cyber-criminal will be commonplace.
This can give you insight if evidence is properly handled, been tampered with or missing.
As others have said, CompTIA security+ at a minimum is the first cyber cert you should pursue before the GCFE.
