FAQs: Criminal Defense
Is criminal defense investigation a regular part of your casework?
Yes. Since 2011, we have actively worked hundreds of criminal cases, ranging in the severity of the charge from theft to capital murder. We provide a unique, non-law enforcement perspective and style of investigations which has served the wrongfully accused well for nearly a decade.
What type of criminal cases have you worked?
We have worked a wide array of criminal cases, including theft, assault, sex crimes, robbery, and murder. We have worked simple, one on one crimes against persons, as well as corporate and organized criminal cases. When and where needed, we have brought in experts in specific investigative fields to assist in our investigations.
Do you provide documentation of witness statements?
Yes, whenever possible. Our goal with every interview is to provide irrefutable documentation of any witness’ statement, although we do not openly advertise or disclose our exact methodology.
Do you accept court-appointed work?
Yes. However, we will not begin work until we have a signed order of appointment in hand. We limit our court-appointed services to the amounts and services specific counties are willing to pay for and require county payments to be sent directly to us, unless an attorney is willing to pay us for our services prior to submitting the pay sheet to the county.
Do you maintain confidentiality?
Yes, to the extent allowable by law. In the State of Texas, private investigators are mandatory reporters of crimes. However, that mandate is satisfied when we report the information to your attorney, who, in turn, makes a legal decision on what is or is not considered privileged.
Do you perform criminal investigations for the general public?
No. You must have an attorney, and we must directly report to your attorney, primarily for the reason stated above.
Are you available to testify in court?
Yes. Testimony is a regular service provided by us.
How much do you charge?
While we don’t post specific rates, we mostly charge by the hour, plus any pertinent expenses. In some instances, we may offer a flat rate for a very specific and limited work scope. For new clients, we may require a retainer. Please call us at 214-785-4504 to discuss further.
How do we contact you?
You can always call our office from 9 am to 6 pm, Monday through Friday at 214-785-4504. Our supervisors have cell phone numbers, and email addresses printed on their business cards, and often communicate directly with clients during cases. You can also go to our contact page on this website and send us a message. If you have a legal matter, and you think an investigator can help you. We want to hear from you.
