Why Law Firms Hire a Private Investigator

Wisconsin lawyers choose experienced Milwaukee private investigators

Licensed Legal Investigators Help Wisconsin Lawyers Win Cases

Trust a Private Detective with Experience

Attorneys practicing in virtually any field of law stand to benefit from the services of reputable, professional private investigators. Legal investigations can cover a broad spectrum of services, from e-discovery and skip tracing to providing expert testimony in court.

Many law firms choose to handle investigations in-house. Of these, very few have the resources to keep a dedicated investigative team on staff, armed with the training and experience expected of licensed legal investigators.

Some attorneys choose to shoulder the burden of investigation themselves. With a full caseload, these investigations never get the time and energy they deserve. Others hand off investigations to paralegals who generally have no experience or background collecting valuable legal evidence.

While they may be competent enough to run a surface-level evaluation, it takes a true professional to know where to find the hidden truth.

Why do some law firms choose to avoid outsourcing to professional legal investigators?

The reasons law firms choose not to hire outside investigative help are typically financial. They may not believe our services are worth the cost, compared to handling it in-house. This is a pennywise, pound-foolish rationale.

Spindletop provides affordable legal investigation services which often provide the difference between losing, winning, or winning as much for your clients as possible.

Other lawyers are hung up on the stereotype of the dirty, rotten gumshoe who sells his morals for money. This trope played out well in pulps and noir films, but the truth of life as a modern private detective is much more mundane.

Private detective firms in Wisconsin are strictly regulated, and no reputable private investigator would engage in activity which would potentially impugn our clients or threaten our license to operate.

There are countless way for us to sniff out the information we need which are entirely legal and morally responsible. Spindletop Investigations, LLC is a strictly white-hat investigative firm.

What Types of Lawyers Benefit from Private Investigations?

Law practices in virtually any field will benefit from legal investigation services. In addition to traditional private detective services such as surveillance and detailed background checks, Spindletop Investigations specializes as an ACE- and CCFE-certified Milwaukee digital forensics firm.

Investigations for…

Family Law Practice

Family lawyers deal with some of the most sensitive aspects of their clients’ lives. Legal investigations aid family lawyers in a range of matters, including setting the terms of prenuptial agreements, investigating parental fitness in custody matters and helping discover hidden assets or infidelity during divorce settlements.

Spindletop Investigations understands the sensitivity of family matters and adheres to a strict confidentiality clause.

FMLA, Worker’s Comp & Insurance Fraud Lawyers

High-profile FMLA and worker’s comp abuse cases have created a level of intrinsic mistrust between employees and employers. Both FMLA and worker’s comp exist as a necessary level of protection for employees facing unexpected emergencies or workplace injuries. Unfortunately, abuse of these programs by a small percentage of people makes it difficult for others to use them honestly.

If you are an employment lawyer seeking definitive evidence proving your client deserves compensation, or if you represent an employer who believes their worker is abusing the system, Spindletop Investigations will discover the truth.

Similarly, insurance fraud creates an unfair marketplace forcing premium-paying customers to shoulder the burden of compensating embellished or dishonest claims.

Our tried-and-true methods have helped expose countless fraudulent claims. Combining old-fashioned detective work with modern digital forensics, Spindletop’s insurance fraud investigations provide definitive evidence and backs it up with expert witness testimony.

Business Law, Contracts & Negotiations

Legal investigations extend beyond collecting evidence to present at court. Many legal proceedings never face a judge, particularly matters of business. Private investigators assist in the reconstruction of a business or individual’s history, identifying documents and records pertinent to business mergers, dissolutions or partnerships.

In matters of business, it pays dividends to know exactly who you’re working with.

Criminal Defense Attorneys

Defense lawyers face an uphill battle when representing their clients in court. The prosecution is backed by the full force of police investigations, meaning the defense must leverage every advantage they can access.

Spindletop Investigations can assist you in establishing your client’s alibi, acquiring critical evidence through e-discovery or verifying the results of a police computer forensics examination.

Witness background checks will help you identify potential weaknesses you or the prosecution may press to an advantage. Detailed preparation in advance will be your greatest asset in defending your client.
