How We Do It:

Following procedures established by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners we collect information on the case circumstances and the investigation subject to develop the target profile and develop an investigation plan. These procedures are fluid as information coms to light and changes during the investigation. Some of our techniques include, but are not limited to, investigating public and governmental data bases, examining tax returns and business records, interviewing individuals, examining electronic transactions to locate illicit asset transfers, telephone and email records.
When necessary we will have Counsel obtain Court authorization for electronic surveillance and possibly consider and request issuance of prejudgment writ of possession (writ of replevin), and temporary restraining orders.
We can provide the services of a licensed private detective for physical surveillance and video or photographic evidence.
