Legal Investigations for Individuals

The role of the Legal Investigator is critical.
The role of a Legal Investigator is to present available information and evidence to your Criminal Defense Attorney, Insurance Defense Attorney, or Personal Injury Attorney which may not have been obtained using their own resources. Many times, this is exceptionally valuable to your case and can affect the outcome in your favor. The expert Investigators at Chimera Investigative Group can assist your counsel in trial preparation by gathering and assembling evidence, offering expert evaluation of that evidence and providing professional reports and testimony. We can work closely with your attorney both prior to and during trial. Post trial investigations can also be very influential to the outcome of sentencing hearings.

Turn a good attorney into a great attorney.
The difference between a good attorney and a great attorney is how much evidence they have and how well they use it. Trust us; you always want to deal with a great attorney. A Legal Investigator can help you get that crucial evidence.

Our firm has developed special expertise in the following areas:
  • Determining the Opposition’s Material Strength
  • Evaluating Witnesses
  • Exploring all potential avenues
  • Discrediting Evidence
  • Identifying and verifying the Facts
  • Identifying Unknown Weaknesses
  • Introducing Advanced Evidence
  • Scrutinizing Expert Witnesses Testimony

It would be very helpful if you could please have the following information available for your Legal Investigator during your Free Consultation:
  • What is your association to this case?
  • What is your relationship to the subject(s)?
  • Will the findings and the evidence collected during this investigation be used in a court of law?
  • Do you have a court order or a court case number?
  • What have you done on your own to this point to obtain the information you are looking for?
  • Does the subject have any vehicles, known addresses or places of known employment?
  • Does the subject have a propensity toward violence, physical and/or verbal?
  • Are there any limitations you would need to put on your Legal Investigator or this legal investigation (financial, discretionary, time, etc.)?

Criminal Investigations/Criminal Investigator

Due to escalating criminal behavior and the dwindling funding of our police departments, police agencies find themselves overwhelmed and understaffed. Many times, not all criminal investigations get the attention and resources they need to be solved. Often times, cases can be prematurely determined to be “cold” cases (unsolvable) or worse result in the finger being pointed at an innocent person.

A Criminal Investigator exclusively dedicated to your case
Today, people seeking justice or those protecting themselves against a false accusation often times seek the answers they need by hiring their own Private Criminal Investigator. There are many benefits of hiring your own criminal Investigator but primarily it can work because you have someone exclusively dedicated to solving your case without all of the limitations of resources and jurisdiction that a law enforcement agency must contend with.

Equally, the police may refuse to consider a crime ever even took place without a foundation of evidence. This is the kind of evidence a private Criminal Investigator could uncover. Sexual assault, physical assault, murder, theft, property damage and vandalism are all crimes in which additional evidence could be needed in order to pursue a suspect. A Criminal Investigator can even gather evidence of wrongful conviction or accusation.

All Inquiries and Criminal Investigations are 100% Confidential
Chimera Investigative Group handles many different types of criminal investigations, including fraud investigations, rape investigations, sexual crime investigations, theft investigations, kidnapping investigations, assault investigations, homicide investigations, and many others. We adapt the techniques we use to the specific crime committed ensuring the best possible outcome.

The Criminal Investigators who handle our criminal investigations at Chimera Investigative Group are highly trained and have the resources needed to pursue your case including forensics investigations, crime scene investigations, networks of investigators, surveillance, records checks, etc. We will remain dedicated to your case until you are satisfied, so there is a high possibility our Criminal Investigator will find the answers you seek.
