Internal Theft Investigations. Employee theft is a serious concern for businesses. Employee theft is estimated to be a billion dollar industry. However, employee theft is seldom detected. When it is, the information is too often not believed due to the close working relationship with the suspect. As losses mount the effects on businesses become staggering. Employee theft averages close to $100,000 per incident and has caused one-third of business failures. Detection is most often the result of tips from customers, other employees, venders and anonymous sources.

Everyone is affected by employee theft as decreased profits directly affect job security. Information about such matters should honor confidentiality and be investigated.

Criminal Attorneys

How to Conduct Your Own Investigation. Upon receipt of your case little is known about the investigations. You have a report and your client has been arrested. You need to evaluate the case and verify, assess and confirm the information contained in the report. What was missed? What was reported erroneously? What just doesn’t make any sense? In this workshop we provide you insight and knowledge to start you on your own investigations. We provide you with steps necessary to formulate an investigative plan. Next we introduce you to the various investigative tools available, the planning that is necessary and how to use them.

We do not recommend an attorney conduct his own investigation. You are probably going to do it anyway. In this presentation we teach you how to conduct your own investigation more effectively and efficiently. Investigation is an art. It takes years of practice, education and training to be proficient. We give you the fundamentals of how to examine some of the basic information sources as your own investigator.

How to Find and Hire a Quality Professional Investigator. To provide your client with the best representation possible it is best to have your case reviewed by an independent, objective and experience investigator who will examine the case from beginning to end. This will allow you to gain a new perspective that could strengthen your case. This analytical look at your case often reveals significant leads and information that may have been over looked and ignored for one reason or another. Evidence or other information may be missed, ignored or simply dismissed as immaterial due to an inexperienced investigator or lack of attention because of a heavy caseload. It may find individuals not interviewed or poor interviews that could result in information and evidence not brought to light. A good investigator can often develop information and evidence you can use to defend your client and have a better chance to prevail in court.

Our interactive workshop provides you with the information that will enable you to ask the right questions of prospective candidates and gain insight to identify an experienced, objective and effective investigator. This workshop gives you tools to gather relevant information that sheds light on the character, abilities and dedication of a particular candidate.
