Many people don’t realize it, but private investigators and lawyers make the perfect combination in many ways. While the two professions are different, they are also complementary. Lawyers are great at working with clients, organizing information, and using that information to navigate the legal system. As a lawyer, information is your best weapon and defense in any case. The more you know, the better prepared you are to argue the case. Private investigators are experts at getting that information. PIs have training, tools, and experience that can be leveraged to get the most and best information for lawyers. Here are a few of the many ways that PIs can help lawyers.

New Leads or Evidence

Private investigators have the means and resources to track down missing individuals that are vital to cases. They are also experts at using records and data to find truths that may provide insight.
Develop a Profile
While so much information is out there and available in today’s digital world, most people don’t know how to find it. And even if you do, the average person often does not have the ability or skills necessary to access the information. Private investigators have robust tools unique to their trade to help them research an individual and build profiles of people that are often integral to a lawyer’s case
Sometimes the good old fashioned skills are still the most useful. Surveillance may not be as fancy as computer forensics, but a well-timed photograph of the right person in the wrong situation still gets the job done. Private investigators can use their skills and expertise in surveillance to verify suspicions.
