Pre-Deposition Interviews provide a clear understanding of what the witness recalls. This allows for precise questions to be asked and succinct answers to be given — no more, no less. This will eliminate the element of surprise and strengthen the position of the case, which will give you an advantage.

Our experienced investigators are astute interviewers. We conduct our interviews in a less formal, more relaxed environment. We are highly trained to ask the right questions, listen closely and analyze what is being said and not said. We observe and understand the non-verbal aspects of the interviewee’s reactions. We probe deeper with the right questions at the right times to obtain any additional information and to ascertain the accuracy of the statements.

Many times, reviewing the incident helps the witness recollect more of the event. After the interview we provide you a detailed memorandum of the interview.

This process provides you an interview roadmap and an assessment of the credibility of the witness.

Testifying: Another important skill for a professional investigator is the ability to testify credibly. One can study how to testify, practice and prepare, but the honing of this skill is done through experience. Experience teaches us what not to do, where education only teaches us what to do.

Cadfael investigators are experienced in testifying. We have testified in federal and state courts, before magistrates, at both civil and administrative proceedings. We make a good impression on the trier of fact. We dress appropriately, behave properly and speak with confidence and respect. We are confident in our investigative protocols and findings. Our testimony reflects that a thorough investigation has been conducted and can withstand hostile and aggressive cross examination without being discredited or diminished.
