Our Investigators do their best to provide exceptional Criminal Defense and Post-Conviction Investigation. They work through Public Defense Offices, are funded by the Courts, and/or are hired directly by Defendants and/or their Attorney's. Unless a Defendant is representing themself (Pro Se), our Investigators prefer to work through Attorney's. Why?
Because the substance of their investigation is considered Attorney Work Product and protected by the Attorney-Client Privilege. This is essential when analyzing a legal case and preparing for Trial.
Most of the criminal cases assigned to our Investigators have included allegations of violent crime. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), violent crime is comprised of murder, non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault, followed by the property crimes of burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. Violent crimes are defined by the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program as those offense, which involve force or the threat of force.
Some of the additional criminal cases investigated include charges of theft, sodomy, reckless driving, negligent driving, physical control, shoplifting, driving under the influence (DUI), fraud, simple assault, no contact order violations, identity theft, child molestation, kidnapping, animal cruelty, malicious mischief, sex trafficking, firearm possession, interfering with a healthcare facility and harassment with threats to kill.
If you hire our Investigators to assist with a Criminal Defense or Post-Conviction Investigation, please trust that they will do our best throughout every phase of the investigative process.
Knowing this, it is also important to realize that comprehensive, thorough investigations take time. Especially criminal cases that involve allegations of violent crime, as there are often many members of Law Enforcement, along with various Witnesses, Experts, and Alleged Victim(s), their families, friends, etc. that may need to be researched, located, and interviewed. Likewise, additional evidence may be sought after, located, preserved, and submitted.
In an investigation, the most beneficial remedies often occur, when we have exhausted all or most of the other identifiable possibilities. With a multitude of factors, foreseen and unforeseen, impacting the outcome, there is simply no way around it. And, while you may be seeking a rapid resolution of your legal situation, it may not be ideal, or even realistic.
This is why it is also important to understand that no one can guarantee the result of an investigation. The only promise an investigator can legitimately make is that they will pledge to do everything they are legally able, within reason, to help a Client favorably resolve their legal matter. Knowing this, an experienced, competent Attorney is the one to determine the best course of action after thoroughly processing and analyzing the investigative findings.
The rule is, your Attorney will ultimately determine the direction and coordinate the flow of your case. They will explore varying hypotheses, decide the optimal legal strategy, and work directly with the Investigators. Although one or more of our Investigators may be involved in the process of preparing a Client's case for trial, it is solely the Attorney's responsibility to provide competent legal advice, never the investigators.
Identifying what to do, and most importantly, what not to do, is one of the many reasons why Harrington Investigations has become a premier, professional Private Investigator Agency. Trust that our Investigators will not quit or fail and if there is something to be found that will help you, they are unceasingly committed to finding it.
So, if you like what they offer, contact them directly to discuss your case today. They will follow up and explore the most effective ways to help. The initial consultation is always FREE and their service, CONFIDENTIAL. While they can not provide "legal advice," they work with highly-qualified Attorneys who can.
