Before You Litigate
Investigate before you litigate, I said to an attorney today and want to repeat that phrase to everyone out there. It does not matter what the nature of your case is, if it is going to trial, if your case is going to be heard in a court of law or even presented before a mediator: investigate before you litigate.
It has been said that a good attorney prepares four hours for every hour of court time. The due diligence involved in the process can be protracted and since most attorneys carry several cases at a time it only stands to reason that hiring a private detective to investigate areas of the case that may be shallow will bring a level of additional expertise that will add depth to your case.
A private detective has a different perspective than your attorney. Through this unique perspective weak areas of your case can be strengthened and information that was previously unknown, brought to light.
