As a Criminal Defense Lawyer, Why Should I Hire a Private Investigator?
Though as an attorney you may have the help of a team of other attorneys, paralegals and other staff aiding you in building a formidable defense for your client, you may find it necessary to engage outside help if you are extremely keen on building a watertight case against the claims being made by the prosecution. Preparing a strong case can be an arduous and time-consuming task meaning that you will not have the free time to scour for evidence or find witnesses who can back up your client.
Unlike you, our private investigators have a lot of time on their hands. This is because we do not focus on how the case is developing but instead put all our efforts in gathering information that will help you build a robust case. Our work usually includes reviewing all submissions made by the prosecution, finding loopholes and inconsistencies and also scouring for evidence that may have been omitted or missed. On engaging us to help with your Anderson criminal defense investigation, we will:
- Carefully review police reports
- Go through all the available evidence with a fine-tooth comb
- Review all photographic evidence
- Listen to any recordings submitted by the prosecution as evidence
- Carefully read and review the statements made by witnesses
Additionally, we also help your legal team to come up with alternative theories. Should it be necessary, our investigators can even visit the crime scene and re-create the actual crime with a view of seeing if there is any evidence that may have been overlooked. At times, we may also question witnesses again to see if they have changed their story or if they gave false testimony for whatever reason.
How Can a Private Investigator Help a Criminal Defense Case?
Our private investigators will be an invaluable addition to your legal defense team because of our in-depth understanding of the law. We will understand the charges being brought up by the prosecution against your client and will use this knowledge to gain a better understanding of the investigation that we are conducting.
