How a Private Investigator Can Help Attorneys

Private investigators often help attorneys in many ways. When attorneys have questions and need answers, their first call often goes to private investigators like LawDog Security & Investigations of Chicago, Illinois. Quality information is vital in court cases, and investigators specialize in finding quality information that ultimately helps win cases.

Law is a bit like a game. There are winners and losers and every attorney wants to win. So, what’s an attorney to do if he or she wants to win their case? They like to go the extra mile to find out any information that can help them win, and in many cases, they utilize the services of a private investigator to get the information they’re seeking. This helps give them the upper hand.

What are some specific things private investigators do for attorneys? For starters, they help locate people such as witnesses or heirs that may be hard to find. Besides finding “lost” people, investigators also aid in finding assets that may be hidden. This can involve offshore bank accounts or actual items like artwork or motor vehicles.

Private investigators are used for leverage for negotiations. They help bring together gathered intelligence that can be used during litigation in favor of the attorney’s client with the outcome being a favorable settlement. Investigators help attorneys “connect the dots” between people and things, as well as offering advice about opponent’s weaknesses, behavioral tendencies, and/or their background. This especially helps the attorney prepare for cross examination.

Meanwhile, attorneys will call upon private investigators to collect and/or review electronic evidence such as emails, as well as the monitoring of trademark and intellectual property.

Finally, investigators often help create historical reconstructions, piecing together documents, facts and/or testimonies that help an attorney prove/win a case.
