Criminal Defense Investigations

 
 

What is a Criminal Defense Investigator?

  • A criminal defense investigator is an essential part of a legal team.

  • If you have been accused of a crime and are facing a trial, the investigation conducted by your defense team should be as thorough and detailed as possible leaving no stone un-turned. The prosecuting attorney will be looking hard for evidence that will incriminate and convict you, so its important that your criminal defense attorney also perform an investigation to uncover evidence that may clear you.

  • Generally speaking, the role of a private investigator in a criminal defense case is to look for gaps in the evidence. It could be physical evidence that is missing, or inconsistencies in statements made by witnesses that are causing the prosecution to conclude you are guilty.

  • Inconsistencies in evidence, additional details and witness accounts can be used very effectively in a criminal defense case.
