Civil Litigation

Civil ClaimA private investigator, or private detective, can help in various ways during a civil lawsuit. It could be that the attorney has yet to file the suit and wants to get as much evidence available before submitting to the courts; perhaps the attorney is looking for more details to bolster their complaint; or it could be that the civil suit has been on-going for an extended period of time and they want new facts to re-energize their case. Whatever the circumstance may be, assistance from a private investigator can help strengthen their case.

There are many advantages to having a PI on your legal team:

They may be able to uncover clues or evidence that have gone undetected. ​
With a fresh set of eyes on police evidence, insurance contracts or even email or phone records, your team can discover the facts that turn the case into your favor. The attorney’s primary interest is to win the case, and this takes knowing the law and maneuvering the case thorough the court system. This should be the focus of the firm. A PI can assist in combing through the files, evidence, witnesses and testimony to find the hidden truths or discover the discrepancies.

Obtain Physical Evidence

One thing that Hollywood has gotten right about private investigators is they conduct a good amount of surveillance. During some civil cases, the other party may be making false claims that can be discovered during photo or video surveillance. So, why do you need a PI to do this when everyone’s phone has a camera? Obtaining surveillance footage takes experience and skill. Sometimes, it involves using high-tech equipment such as covert cameras, audio recording equipment and GPS trackers. Most importantly…in The Commonwealth of Virginia you MUST be certified by the state to “follow” someone. Otherwise, it’s considered stalking.

Criminal Defense Investigation

Criminal Defense InvestigationsLaw enforcement plays a huge role in a prosecutor’s ability to build a case. They help in finding witnesses to a crime or following the evidence in the course of accusing a suspect. But, there are times where the accused will realize there is key evidence missing or a possible witness who has yet to come forward. It is situations like this that a defense attorney may team up with a private investigator to help build the defense by finding and bringing forward the missing evidence or witnesses.

Double G Protection & Investigation Firm will partner with your defense team and conduct a Criminal Defense Investigation. During the process our agents will review the case, attempt to locate missing witnesses or uncover evidence that is not yet discovered. We will conduct interviews, surveillance and background checks to determine the quality of a potential witness, whether they’re for your defense or the prosecutor.

In the United States you are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt by a jury of your peers. Reasonable doubt is the key to a criminal defense.

We will re-visit the crime scene to see where anything may have been overlooked.
