Civil Investigations

Civil legal disputes are stressful for people. Most folks have no prior experience with litigation, and the uncertainty of the process weighs heavily on them. I understand this completely and will work directly with your attorney to strengthen your case and deliver the best possible outcome.

Civil investigations encompass a wide spectrum of casework in state and federal court. Below are just some of the types of cases I have worked on and can help with. Also, I have experience serving subpoenas and legal process for criminal and civil cases in Vermont and New York.

Insurance and Workers Comp Investigations

When someone is injured in an accident and a third-party may be liable, I investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident and help that person’s lawyer obtain a fair settlement.

Surveillance

Insurance fraud, recurring theft, and workers compensation abuse often call for on-site surveillance. Using high resolution video and photography, I will explore the possibility of fraud and deceit and deliver evidence that can be used in court. I can work with you, your attorney, or an insurance company to get to the truth.

Wrongful Death Investigations

In these cases, I examine how a fatal injury may have resulted from the negligence of another party.

Bodily Injury & Product Liability

When someone is injured in an accident and a third-party may be liable, I investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident and help that person’s lawyer obtain a fair settlement.

Spousal Infidelity

Spousal infidelity is a painful thing to confront, and if you suspect your husband or wife is cheating on you, there’s a good chance you are right.
Hiring a private investigator is the best way to find the truth and make sure the evidence is admissible in family court. This is an awful experience for anyone to go through. You can count on me to handle your case with utmost discretion and empathy, and together, we will get to the bottom of what’s happening in your spouse’s life.

Child Custody and Abuse

These investigations examine a child’s welfare and treatment following a separation, divorce, or ongoing custody dispute. These contentious situations often require surveillance, interviews with friends and family members, and background checks to determine whether the child is a victim of abuse or neglect.

Wrongful Termination

Most employees in Vermont and New York are at-will employees. This means you can be fired for practically any reason unless the decision is motivated by discrimination or retaliation. If your employer’s motives are suspect, you may have a case for wrongful termination. I will investigate the circumstances surrounding your firing and the company’s history of adhering to the law. All evidence I gather will be usable in court by your lawyer.

Employment Discrimination

You may have a case for employment discrimination if you were not considered for a position due to race, gender, religion, national origin, age, sex orientation, disability, or gender identity.

Case Consultations

If you are an attorney looking for a second opinion about your case, I can help. With two decades of experience in state and federal courts, I can examine the evidence and consult you about investigative strategies that will optimize the results for your client.
