Legal Background Check Services for Criminal Investigations. Legal background check services are key tools used in criminal investigations. A background check for an attorney examines an individual’s personal and professional history and associations. Such an investigation either validates or disproves the person’s or business’s asserted character, identity or reputation.
For each law firm background check, our investigative team bases its findings on the review of criminal records, education and employment history, civil records, driving and vehicle records, drug tests, personal and professional references, surveillance, and any additional available sources a client might request.
Lawyer Background Check Services for Civil Investigations. Civil investigations follow similar protocols to those involving criminal cases. Our civil investigators gather evidence for trials involving two citizens, or in some cases a citizen and a business entity.
These types of investigations surround cases that involve workers’ compensation, asset searches, domestic abuse and marital disputes, childhood custody and abuse, personal injury, missing persons, property disputes, and other matters tailored to each client’s needs and concerns for a case.
The investigative tools and tactics that we commonly employ in our civil investigations include surveillance, financial documents, computer and data recovery, fraud reviews, subpoenaed medical records, witness statements from friends and family, and computer and cellphone activity.
