How a Criminal Investigator Can Help With a Case

Law Firms of any size realize their reputation is important to what brings in clients. They may advertise continually, but if they have a reputation for poor representation, their business will suffer. Providing superior representation is really what a firm needs to stand for, and to obtain that top notch legal representation might mean employing different, creative means.

This is especially true for a criminal defense firm. When someone is accused of a crime, they want to know that the attorney they hire will represent them using every possible means. These people know that they are facing fines and possible jail time, and they do not wish to put their future in the hands of a firm that is not fully qualified.

For example, a firm representing a person accused of theft would greatly benefit from a private investigator. An investigator can provide additional information to the attorney that may not be available through the police investigation, effectively relieving their client from responsibility. If the investigation proves the client’s guilt, the information can be used to appeal to the court for a lesser charge or possible chance of it being dropped.

Here are some ways private investigators assist law firms:

  • Locating people that could help in the construction of the case
  • Finding assets that will support what the defendant needs for their case
  • Putting together intelligence and information outside of the realm of law to strengthen a case
  • Helping prepare for cross examination by studying the other side of the case

And many other ways…

A criminal lawyer defending theft cases or any other crimes must have resources available to actively represent their client that goes above knowledge of the law. The firm must utilize outside resources to provide the best representation for their client.

There are many lawyers in the Orlando, Florida area. While many firms do not handle criminal defense, the ones that do must set themselves apart from other firms. These defense firms must use every means possible to provide the best defense strategy to their clients.  If you want the representation of a law firm that consistently works hard for clients, contact The Umansky Law Firm today.
