 ​Investigation & Collection of Evidence in support of our Client's case

Our team of Experienced Expert Investigators analyze the facts and evidence to determine the best course of investigation to support your case.  Our team consists of investigators with 20 + years of experience, analysts, paralegals, mitigation specialists, experts, and interns.

Our team has the time and the knowledge to really work on your case. 

Our Criminal Defense Investigations start with a thorough case analysis

  • a privileged interview with Client in person, jail, or telephonically after contracts are signed or we are appointed. Review of all case materials released from the prosecution to the defense, including PD reports, lab reports, diagrams, videos, photos, interviews of Client and witnesses...as well as what the defense has found to date.
  • After a thorough analysis we consult with the legal team and make a plan for your defense.​ 


Elements of investigation that may be used in your defense include:

  • Intelligence - gathering information from sources, collected data, and internet research to support your case
  • Locate potential witnesses, persons to serve subpoenas to, and people to support mitigation
  • Records retrieval of report supplements, chain of custody, court video, traffic cams, jail cams, phone records, GPS data...
  • Field Operations -surveillance, stakeouts, photography/video, undercover, to gather and document case evidence
  • Interviews of PD, states witnesses, your witnesses
  • ​Scene recreation and visual aids to help in trial or hearings
  • Interface with police, detectives, federal agencies
  • Scene collection and preservation of evidence
  • Lab testing or have our experts re-examine states evidence and give a their opinion
    • Experts in digital data from cell tower, cell messages, computer use, handwriting, ballistics, DNA, fingerprint analysis, voice recognition​Jury selection assistance though backgrounds, observing body language, skid marks, BAC, drugs...
  • Courtroom testimony of investigators and experts
  • Locating exculpatory evidence not provided by the prosecution
  • ​Mitigation for settlement conference and sentencing in all criminal matters including Capital. We conduct a thorough interview with Client that spans from birth through the present. Mitigators used can be mental health issues, abuse, addiction, parental problems, lack of supervision or education as well as never in trouble, letters from friends, family, church, outreach programs, any special classes taken, reports from DES, schools, health records and more


​Contraband

Contraband can be planted by anyone.  If formally charged time is of the essence to get the video from around your cell and to get the OJ reports for the past few weeks. Do not wait to get help investigating, collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, because the evidence can be overwritten as soon as two weeks if not preserved, and cell mates are often moved.

A Deadly weapon charge can give a sentence of up to 15 years.
