An investigation is more intricate then many would realize. Knowing how to approach a legal matter in the “investigative sense” is easier for the investigator. We assist our clients by adapting to each case differently, where many clients are not even aware of certain services we offer.
A personal injury attorney might hire us to sign-up a client or photo a slip & fall area…but are they also aware we can obtain the commercial liability insurance where the accident occurred? Did you know we can obtain 911 voice calls on disc, obtain auto or property insurance where an accident occurred, and even assist with proving negligence? We assist our clients with many services per case, from locating witnesses for statements, process services nationally, or to assist with accident reenactment services.
We offer various uncommon searches and tactics to obtain invaluable evidence, we are aggressive yet covert with our approach. This might work for basic fraud detection, however being creative and making the case evolve is the responsibility of the investigator.
Our SIU (Special Investigative Unit) investigators utilize creative tactics to include foot surveillance to obtain the needed evidence you seek. We utilize various tools to assist us (powerful optical zoom lenses, covert cameras, drones, etc.) which enables us to provide our clients with invaluable video evidence.
We also provide our clients with backend access to our online case management software, allowing clients to view surveillances taking place in “real time”, enabling them to make decisions into ongoing cases.
