Legal Investigations

They connect clues to uncover facts about legal, financial, or personal matters. Private detectives and investigators offer many services, infidelity surveillance, pre-employment verification; and individual background profiles.

They provide the crucial information you need to make informed decisions and back that information with documented, court submissable evidence.

Counter surveillance

With today's ever increasing micro technology, 'eavesdropping' devices are becoming smaller and harder to locate. However, because we specialize in surveillance, it makes us keenly aware of our surroundings and the "modus operandi" of those placing or using covert devices.

Counter Surveillance is for those that think they are being watched or tracked. We employ the latest technology and years of experience to give you peace of mind or prove your suspicions. Our equipment can locate wireless microphones, video cameras, GPS devices and a wide variety of eavesdropping equipment. If it can be used to 'spy' on you, we can find it!

We employ the latest Anti Surveillance equipment to perform full sweeps of your home, office, auto or any place that you wish to be secure from prying eyes or ears.

GPS TRACKING

Just what Is A GPS Tracking Device?!

A GPS tracking device can be used to determine the exact location of a person, vehicle or any other item to which it's attached. GPS devices are capable of recording the position of the person, place or thing, at intervals of your choosing.

This data can be stored in the tracking device or it can be sent out through a computer that is connected to the Internet or the information can be transferred to a centrally located database using a radio or satellite modem that is located inside of the unit. The item's location is then transferred to the GPS device where it is displayed against the backdrop of a map.

GPS tracking devices and software are especially popular with owners of vehicle fleets. They have turned into indispensable tools for effectively managing them. These tracking devices provide accurate information about the location of their vehicles along with the drivers productivity. The use of global positioning systems have been shown to significantly impact a business bottom line, yielding substantial cost, and time savings and enhancing overall employee productivity.

The US Department of Defense is responsible for developing GPS tracking devices. All global positioning systems use tracking software that is used by the US government's 24 global positioning system satellites that orbit the earth. What happens is the satellites transmit their data using digital radio signals to receivers that are located on earth. GPS tracking devices installed in vehicles that are meant to be tracked transmit data to land stations or satellites. The signals are ultimately received by a user or tracker. Information is then processed by the vehicles GPS software, and provides information concerning the vehicles location, how fast the vehicle is going, along with the direction that the vehicle is headed in. Owners of these vehicles have the choice of either a cellular-based, satellite-based, or wireless GPS systems.

For people that have ever wondered about where their truck or car might be, you don't have to worry anymore because GPS tracking devices provide them with this information.

There are tons of reasons why you should get a GPS tracking unit for yourself. If you're concerned about your car or your autos whereabouts, then you definitely are in need of a GPS tracking device.

Our asset searches are designed to locate assets and give you the information you need for judgment collection or asset recovery, without wasting your money on information that you likely already know or could find for free on the internet.

We are the choice for those who need to know the truth before they waste valuable time and money chasing an uncollectible debtor. We are licensed private detectives who investigate your case.

Who hires us?...

...collection agencies, debt collectors, asset recovery specialists, attorneys and individuals looking to collect judgments against individuals and businesses. Our clients cannot afford to purchase outdated or inaccurate information when trying to locate assets and collect judgments.

PROCESS SERVICE

Service of Process is when legal documents such as summonses, complaints, subpoenas, writs and other court documents are delivered to the individual to whom the legal document is directed. Service of Process must be served by an individual who is not a party to the case.


What does a Process Server do?

A legal process server delivers (or serves) legal documents to a defendant or an individual involved in a court case. The process server must serve the documents in accordance with the legislation in the area of service.

This may mean handing the documents to the defendant personally or sub-serving to someone in the same household or business. Once the documents are delivered, the process serving agent must provide proof that the papers were served. This is done through a document call an Affidavit of Service, also called a Proof of Service, which must be notarized and given to the party who requested service.

Process servers will also file your papers with the courts.

WITNESS STATEMENTS

As professional investigators, our primary function is to gather facts. One of our primary forms of fact-gathering is the witness statement. Affidavits, handwritten statements by witnesses, statements written by investigators and signed by witnesses, and tape recorded statements are all widely used in the context of civil and criminal litigation.

However, regardless of the form of the statement, statements have three primary purposes.

1. SETTLEMENT -- to develop information and "investigate" a case.
2. PRESERVATION -- to serve as a recorded recollection of a witnesses.
3. IMPEACHMENT -- to document testimony and provide a reliable standard against which a potentially hostile witness might later be held with regard to testimony from the witness stand.

One of the most difficult situations presented to an investigator is that of dealing with an uncooperative or hostile witness who may be critical in terms of testimony to the outcome of a case. In this type of statement taking, the investigator must walk a thin line between the investigation role of statement taking and the documentary function it serves because if a statement cannot be potentially used in court, it is essentially of no value.

Additionally, if a statement is used at all in court, the court will usually insist that the statement be read in its entirety, including those portions of the statement that may not necessarily be favorable to the investigator's client's position.

The attorney cannot pick and choose parts of a statement to present in court. It is perhaps stating the obvious that a statement does no good if only part of it is helpful while another part of it is so potentially harmful to the case that the statement cannot be introduced.

To cope with this problem, the trained and experienced investigator can orchestrate the taking of statements to a great extent and both "investigate" a case and simultaneously preserve the work product for use at trial later on.

INTERNET MONITORING

Internet monitoring is sometimes a crucial turning point in your current situation. What use to be doubt or fear, now becomes reality with proof positive results of online activities. Know what sites they are visiting, who they are talking to and what they are saying. This type of surveillance is absolutely invisible to the subject and extremely covert in nature.

This can be applied to your spouse, your employees or your children. When it comes to your children on the internet, you want to know who they are talking to and what they are saying. Internet Monitoring can provide you with that extra "look over the shoulder" and even alert you immediately to certain topics of conversation. In the case of children, our specialized software can be installed and "prominent" to the child. Some clients want the child to know that their activities are being watched.

There are some very strict guidlines we must follow with this type of activity. We can let you know if this is the solution you may need and what we are able to do. Contact us for further details.

ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION

Closure: Often parties involved will never get closure unless an investigation determines what really happened, especially when investigating a fatal or serious motor vehicle collision. Our expertise, experience and insight can help to retirieve those missing details.

If you are trying to collect claims for an accident or need proof that you were not at fault through negligence, only a qualified accident investigator can assist you in obtaining the evidence you need for your court case. It is important to get the evidence to stand up in court.

Depending on the the accident, an investigation may include visits to the accident scene as well as interviews with witnesses and wothers involved. Our Accident Investigators will attempt to recreate exactly what happened based upon the data gathered. As an accident investigator, the question as to what took place prior to, during, and after the accident will be explored. The investigator needs to answer who, what, when, where, why, and how. The accident investigation will contain a detailed report, witness interviews, and other evidence collected through the investigation which will assist in finding out exactly happened in the accident.

Are you Uncertain?

 

 

 

 

You may be hesitant about hiring a private investigator to watch your spouse, track your child or loved one. One thing is for sure: It is likely to be one of the hardest decisions you will ever make.

We handle these situations privately and discreetly and most importantly...within the limits of the laws.

Our Equipment

Technology

 

 

 

 

The Canon FS Series are the main cameras issued to our agents in the field. These cameras are lightweight and compact but are also more reliable than typical tape media cameras. These cameras are not affected by extreme temperatures or moisture due to their using a flash media to store footage. This allows us not only greater reliability but it also makes it easier to transfer footage therefore making it easier to send photos and video clips to our clients from the field.

 

 

 

 

A covert camera we issue to agents in the field. This fully digital video recorder allows us to adapt a hidden lens into almost anything. This camera system is small enough to be worn on the body or to be hidden in any number of small objects giving us the ability to acquire film in almost any situation. This camera also uses flash media instead of tapes and has no moving parts which make it extremely reliable.

 

 

 

 

An example of a covert camera setup our investigators are supplied with. These state of the art hidden cameras are used by our agency and our staff is extensively trained in their use.

X-26 Taser

 

 

 

 

The TASER X26 is the state of the art in electronic control devices. The X26 ECD (Electronic Control Device) uses a replaceable TASER cartridge containing a compressed nitrogen propulsion system to deploy two small probes. The TASER X26 transmits HEMI impulses through the wires tethering the probes into the target individual to provide incapacitation. The TASER X26 is an effective force option at distances from direct contact up to 35 feet (10.6 meters) away. The TASER X26 is currently the deployed HEMI device of choice within DoD and is type classified by the US Army. TASER technology is rapidly growing as an effective scalable force option for military interventions and application.
