Litigation Support for Civil & Criminal Proceedings

Our team of investigators provides litigation support at all stages of civil and criminal proceedings (initial investigative, discovery, during and after trial). We work directly with legal counsel to ensure nothing was overlooked and we pull together key sources of information to obtain documentation that is both compelling and admissible in court.

Litigation support services we provide include:

Witnesses Interviews – Identification, location, evaluation and interviewing of witnesses as well as obtaining written statements; review of existing statements, evidence and information and identify any inconsistencies which can lead to the develop of new leads or the discovery of additional witnesses that previously may not have come forward. As part of our evaluation of witnesses we verify that they do not have underlying motives for making negative statements and can re-interview witnesses as your trial date approaches to ensure their stories have not changed over time.

Surveillance – Discrete observation through physical surveillance (vehicular & pedestrian) and documentation of activities through reports, still photography or video surveillance

Family Court/Divorce/Custody – Investigative support on matters related to child and elder abuse, divorce litigation and custody matters to determine background, activities and associations, character and other relevant factors.

Polygraph Examinations - Provided through a partnership with Veritas Investigations, LLC.

Forensic Accounting & Fraud Investigations

While all investigations include many of the services listed above, specialized knowledge and skill is required to perform fraud investigations and forensic accounting and there are tasks that a fraud examiner performs that require an accounting background. One of our investigators is a Certified Fraud Examiner through the Association of Fraud Examiners. This designation is awarded by the Association of Fraud Examiners and is a credential recognized by federal and state agencies. In addition to offering this specialized service, our comprehensive approach sets us apart from other investigative agencies. Our team of investigators link existing documents, data on financial transactions and witness statements to elements of a crime and build a case that will be admissible in court.

Services specific to forensic accounting and fraud investigations include:

Discovery of Hidden Assets & Unreported Income – Location of property, real estate holdings, investments, vehicles, bank accounts, trust accounts and businesses to provide a true picture of net worth of assets which will allow you to maximize the value of your legal action

Detection & Tracing of Fraudulent Transactions – Including money laundering or embezzlement investigation

Why should you hire a Private Investigator?

Protecting the security of our assets, our personal information, and our loved ones has become a necessity in this day and age. While private investigators historically took cases that law enforcement were either unwilling or unable to handle, the industry has grown tremendously over the past decade to meet the changing needs of both the public and private sectors. Today, private investigators assist individuals, businesses, and attorneys by finding and analyzing information about legal, financial, and personal matters.

Our team of seasoned investigators has been involved in a magnitude of investigations and has developed a wealth of information, real world experience, and specialized skills. We utilize databases to which the general public does not have access in order to find critical information. We review existing information and search for inconsistencies that may help develop new leads. We can re-interview witnesses to determine if  stories have changed over time or if they have underlying motives for making negative statements. This can lead to the discovery of additional witnesses or evidence. We ensure that nothing was overlooked, pull together key sources, and prepare documentation that will be both compelling and admissible in court.
