In our previous blog post, we discussed the reasons behind why a private investigator is so essential and helpful in creating a solid case for any lawyer. For this post, we will continue this discussion by talking about another five ways in which a California private investigator could make all the difference in obtaining a successful verdict or settlement for any legal client.
Anticipate the Moves of the Opposing Side
With the assistance of a legal investigator, background investigations can be performed on the opposing parties. Looking into their history and past actions could make a significant difference in how an attorney creates his or her case. By knowing how they react to pressure, it could make it easier to cross-examine them, create a favorable negotiation or be more successful in the overall case strategy.
Planning for Cross Examination
Whether it is for a witness or the client, knowing their weaknesses, history, tendencies and other information could be extremely helpful during cross examination. Essentially the lawyer will be able to work the cross examination around the facts that he knows and help better protect his or her client from being backed into a corner.
Gathering Electronic Evidence
Emails, text messages, and other electronic documents can be essential for an attorney to provide sufficient evidence in his or her client's favor. Many times; however, these documents may have been deleted or seemingly may have disappeared. A private investigator can work to find these documents and uncover them to help the overall outcome of the case.
Monitoring Trademarks and Intellectual Property
This is especially helpful for a lawyer that is working with a business or corporation who is worried about their intellectual property being stolen. Investigators can track down where the products are being used and see if there is any illegal activity occurring.
A private investigator can work to put together the history of a company, a family or even the past behind a real estate issue to help a lawyer find the information he or she needs. Putting together witnesses, lost documents and important facts from various facets of history is part of the job of a legal investigator.
