Because professional private investigators like provide attorneys with verified information that is immediately available for their use, attorneys consider us more than a convenience, especially in the area of asset research.
We are like that one pair of pliers in the toolbox you always reach for. The pair that is strong and reliable. Plus, just like the pliers are multipurpose, we are, too:
- Turnaround time for coming up with the facts or truth about a situation is pretty quick with us. In the case of financial asset research or when trying to locate hidden assets like hidden bank accounts or stock accounts, and when time is of the essence, that fast turnaround is critical. Experience and variety of resources plays a big part of that. Knowing where to go and what techniques work best – and fastest – means we can provide what’s needed in the time frame it’s needed.
- Many big law firms have paralegals, staff investigators and departments that do nothing but research, but there’s a whole world of knowledge these people wouldn’t have access to because of the limits to the scope of their investigations and the fact that their budgets are limited. Since this is all we do, we subscribe to proprietary data bases that are professional and restricted to the highly qualified private investigators. These data bases are very expensive and, often, out of reach for occasional use by law firms. However, in our role as a business asset search investigator or as a personal asset search investigator, they are priceless.
- Another aspect of experience and a wide spectrum of resources is that attorneys say we are a one-stop-shop. They can request multiple bits of information and get it all at once. That prevents having to go to several different areas in the law firm research or investigative departments and then having to piece it all together. We can provide the whole package – ready to go. Saves time and money in the long run.
- Their departments often have to go through all the steps and learn the process – racking up a tremendous number of man hours. Then, in the end, fail to come up with the information through their internal sources. With experience and resources, we know exactly how to get the information, verify it and present it.
The old saying really is true: An attorney is only as good as the information they have to work with.
Private investigators make sense for some really good attorneys!
