Doctors specialize, attorneys specialize, shouldn't your Investigative Partner? While we offer our experience in a wide variety of investigative services, Downs Kearney Investigations specializes in certain areas, as outlined below.
Background Investigations are the heart and soul of what we do at Downs Kearney. Our backgrounds are designed around each unique case using decades of experience and creativity. We seek out and discover the kind of information that some may never even consider. Our methodical and strategic approach has saved clients tens of millions of dollars in thousands of cases. Often in civil matters, legal teams need background information on parties to a suit in order to assist in guiding the direction of their case. Regardless of the purpose for the investigation, depending on the scope of the case, some of the things that may be discovered include: criminal and civil history, prior claims history, known associates, social media footprint, and much more.
Downs Kearney has developed streamlined, time tested methods to locate witnesses, defendants, and other key parties of interest. Often times this can be accomplished without alerting the party being sought, if necessary. Whether you need to find and interview a witness, set a deposition, or track down an uncooperative defendant, put the experience of Downs Kearney to work for you.
Downs Kearney takes an in-depth catered approach to Social Media Investigations. Evidence discovered in these investigations has been instrumental in contradicting inflated claims of injuries or limitations. Our Social Media Investigations aren't simply a data scrub of information turned over to you, for you to determine what is relevant. We independently review social media sites associated with your subject. Depending on the scope of your case, we provide relevant information not only since the reported loss, but prior social media activity to assist in showing any change in quality of enjoyment of life.
Plaintiff or defense, our approach to Premises Liability and Workers Compensation claims is the same. Downs Kearney casts a wide net to identify causes, patterns and contributing factors to the claim, as well as their extent and impact on the case. These cases can be as short and focused as identifying liable parties, or as in-depth as examining prior corporate and vendor complaints, researching the scene and interviewing witnesses and involved parties in your cases, and prior cases for context.
Downs Kearney conducts interviews and obtains recorded statements (when appropriate) that answer the pivotal questions. Carefully crafted lines of questioning are developed based on the details of each case, and designed to stand up to the scrutiny of opposing counsel.
Downs Kearney performs surveillance for a wide variety of cases. From workers compensation to auto liability, medical malpractice to domestic concerns, we are committed to providing the guided expertise in surveillance solutions that only comes with decades of experience.
No two cases are the same, and this holds true for Asset Investigations. Depending on your needs, Downs Kearney develops asset research around your specific case. These cases can start with current assets, and move on to identify recently liquidated assets that may indicate an attempt to hide assets. Additionally, Downs Kearney can help you determine if other claims have been placed against any known assets, to help you better understand your ability to seek recovery and/or relief.
