How can a private investigator help with background searches for criminal and civil cases?

typing on computer

As a lawyer, you may handle both criminal and civil cases. If this is the case, you likely use outside resources to build a solid case and reach a just outcome for your clients. Lawyers use outside experts to testify on relevant matters regarding a case as they have specialized knowledge of a particular field. Outside experts can help the court understand the facts of a case and establish liability. Similarly to outside experts, lawyers can benefit from using private investigators to run background searches on any person of interest. Keep reading to learn why lawyers should consider hiring private investigators to run background searches. In addition, please contact our seasoned Connecticut Private Investigators for Lawyers who can help you obtain critical information that can make a significant impact on the outcome of your case. 

What are background searches for lawyers?

Firstly, a background check looks at an individual’s criminal history. Any criminal convictions will appear on a background check. Employers often use background checks when interviewing prospective employees. However, criminal records alongside various other records can also be obtained through a background search conducted by a private investigator. Lawyers typically use background checks to uncover critical information that can make a significant difference in their criminal or civil case. If you are a lawyer, to strengthen your case and discover a wide array of information regarding your clients and other relevant individuals, you should consider hiring an adept private investigator. A private investigator can conduct a background search to uncover the following information:

  • Birth certificates
  • Employment records
  • Military records
  • Education records
  • Legal status in the U.S.
  • Court records
  • Social media posts
  • Addresses and phone numbers
  • Drug test results
  • Bankruptcies
  • Licensing records
  • Credit records
  • Driving records
  • Financial records

A private investigator can help you uncover crucial information that can be used during legal proceedings. This information can be used to validate or disprove a person’s asserted character or reputation. A private investigator can use various databases that are not accessible to the general public to obtain sensitive information about an individual. This is extremely beneficial for lawyers as it gives them a legal pathway to providing the court with pertinent facts. These databases can reveal exclusive information about the client but also about witnesses and the opposing party.
