Outsourcing Legal Research to a Michigan Private Investigator
Paralegals and legal assistants are valuable members of your team, but they can be limited in their resources and time when it comes to research. Outsourcing legal investigations allows you to do due diligence for every case you have and ensures that you will be in possession of the most in-depth information possible.
Private investigators are often an attorney’s best legal resource, for many reasons:
- Extensive research outlets: In-house legal support can gather pertinent information using public databases and internet searches. However, in-depth digital trails and offline activities can be more thoroughly and accurately documented by a private investigator.
- People finding expertise: Tracking down witnesses can be a tedious and frustrating use of your legal team’s time. Using advanced investigative tools, expert professional investigators who specialize in witness location can find hard-to-locate subjects. This information will be thorough and often includes current and previous mailing addresses, physical residence, phone numbers, place of employment, and other contact pertinent contact information.
- Domestic and global searches: Legal matters do not always stay local to Michigan or even the United States. Private investigators are prepared to take a search beyond domestic borders. Private investigators relieve you of the burden of global research that requires travel, extensive network connections, and the tools to work abroad.
- Time: You have dozens of cases that require attention and your time is dedicated to all facets of legal responsibilities. Private investigators have one goal – to carry out an investigation from start to finish, as meticulously as possible. We have the time and focus to get the information you need, in the right format, and in a time-sensitive situation so you can carry out your duties without interruption.
Ultimately, the more information you have, the stronger your case and your arguments will be. If you feel like discovery is incomplete, or that there is something you could be missing, rely on a private investigator to confirm the information you have already gathered and expand intelligence.
