Civil /Criminal

Civil & Criminal Case Investigation

After consultation with the attorney, we will review all information or discovery materials and formulate a strategy together. 
Photos, scene diagrams if desired, and witness-interviews will be conducted. If desired, formal written, audio-taped, or videotaped statements can be taken. An immediate search for potential area video of a scene is conducted.

The "other side" usually has unlimited resources to perform this casework and that diligence must be matched or exceeded to obtain the optimum result for our client.

...................................
In criminal matters, is it a "discovery case" or an "identification case"? This determines the focus of our work and whether we approach witnesses with ID photo-arrays or with strategic interview outlines.
In plaintiff-civil matters, we must look at the litigation-history of defendants or even the scene itself.

...................................
In civil-case defense cases, for insurers and-or employers, background-checks and thorough surveillance will tell the real story of whether a claim is legitimate or exaggerated. We are experienced with both stationary and mobile surveillance, have the necessary video equipment and vehicles, and are familiar with the local neighborhoods, roads, travel routes etc. That is invaluable for local surveillance. Bringing in statewide-covering investigation agencies who don't know the area well is reducing a client's edge in these cases.
Over the years, we have worked for 16 different top insurance companies and their attorneys in a surveillance capacity. 
....................................

We know the area and have accumulated invaluable local contacts and local scene-knowledge.
We are experienced with both tracking down witnesses and working with them in the best manner possible to obtain favorable results. Finesse in getting witnesses to cooperate is critical. Approaching them at the right time and place, and in person if desired, is critical. We will background-check witnesses to acquire ammunition to possibly discredit their credibility if necessary.
These are methods and nuances only learned from experience. 


KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.
INVESTIGATION MAKES THE CASE.
YOU ONLY GET ONE SHOT AT AN INVESTIGATION; IT IS WORTH DOING RIGHT.
