Civil Case Private Investigator

Preparing for Trial in Civil Cases


Generally, the standard of proof needed in civil cases is proof by a preponderance of the evidence. Often times litigants find themselves testifying in court with either no corroborative witnesses or no records to provide to a jury to consider. Our private detectives will assist you in building your case in several ways. We can gather the records you need or interview the witnesses you would want to call for trial. Also, if you desire, we can testify on your behalf providing the jury needed information concerning the facts we investigated or you may use it to impeach your opponent. Too many cases are dismissed for lack of evidence -- don't let yours be the next.

In civil cases, our private investigators conduct investigations for private and corporate clients who anticipate legal proceedings. These include, but are not limited to, child custody disputes and asset recovery searches as well as theft and loss preservation and all matters of civil rights claims (e.g., Title VII discrimination and sexual harassment lawsuits).

This is the easiest and most inexpensive search a private detective performs. At minimum, you should screen prospective tenants in that aspect.

Prevent the loss of rental income by prescreening tenants for other criminal history and for judgments before you accept any payment. It’s cheaper to stop them from moving in than it is to kick them out.

Here are some warning signs you should watch out for. Any past evictions from other tenants. An excessive history for bad debt identified through excessive debt collection history. Recent foreclosure. Pending divorce or annulment. Any criminal history involving a sex crime, moral turpitude, fraud or theft, mail, identity, and there are others.

"At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions, nevertheless, become law by precedent, sapping, by little and little, the foundations of the constitution, and working its change by construction, before any one has perceived that that invisible and helpless work has been busily employed in consuming its substance. In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life, if secure against all liability to account."
